The son of the late thespian Sir Bernard Miles, John chose not to pursue a life in the theatre, gaining numerous victories at club level in his Diva-Ford in 1964. Under the wing of Willment he continued his winning ways in 1965 and received a third-place Grovewood Award.

Scoring nine consecutive wins with the Willment Lotus Elan at the start of 1966, John soon became involved with the works team, racing the GT Europa and F3 Lotus 41 in 1967 and 1968 with tremendous success. A planned season with Lotus in Formula 2 in 1969 never took off, but he did finish third in the Rome GP and fifth at Hockhenheim from three starts before Colin Chapman entrusted him with the task of developing the Lotus 63 4WD car in five Grands Prix.

His reward was a place alongside Jochen Rindt in the Lotus team for the 1970 season, which started well with a fifth place in the Lotus 49C in South Africa, but gradually declined as Miles' apprehension over the fragility of the new Lotus 72 steadily grew. After Rindt's fatal crash at Monza, John was summarily replaced by Reine Wisell and his Grand Prix career was done. He did make a brief appearance for BRM in the non-championship Jochen Rindt Memorial race at Hockenheim the following season, whilst racing for the DART sports car team, but soon retired to concentrate on his new occupation as a motoring journalist, road-testing cars, before returning to Lotus Cars in an engineering capacity.
