Australian two-wheel talents Jack Miller and Wayne Maxwell joined an all-star line-up of motorsport royalty at the weekend’s inaugural Perth Speed Fest in Western Australia, ahead of a 9000-strong crowd.

The Perth Motorplex came alive on Sunday with Miller and Maxwell joined by the likes of Formula 1 ace Daniel Ricciardo, ex-F1 champion Alan Jones, V8 Supercars drivers Will and Alex Davison, Nick Percat, WRC’s Alister McRae, FMX legend Josh Sheehan and more.

“It’s been an awesome day,” Marc VDS MotoGP World Championship rider Miller said. “So cool to have so much motorsport around and the variety of different vehicles and disciplines has been great. I’ve had a ball!”

Multiple national superbike champion Maxwell added: “Yeah, it’s been a great day, I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s been great to hang out with other drivers and riders and just have a good time putting on a show.”

Entertainment on- and off-track was non-stop with 60 separate motorsport demonstrations, autograph signings and over 300 historic, classic, sports and modified cars on show.
