Jack Goff joins Andrew Jordan at MG

Wednesday, February 25 2015

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Manufacturers' Champions MG has signed rising star Jack Goff for this year's championship, which kicks off at Brands Hatch on 4/5 April.

Goff graduated to the BTCC as reigning Clio Cup champion in 2013, driving a Vauxhall Insignia for Team HARD, and served notice of his potential with a fighting second place in the season's final race. When the Team HARD cars were taken over by Team BMR last year, he transferred to the new owners, comparing well to team-mates Alain Menu and Aron Smith before switching to the squad's VW CC at Snetterton.

The 23-year-old will join former champion Andrew Jordan at the Triple Eight Racing-run squad. Both drivers replace Jason Plato and Sam Tordoff, who took the team to the Manufacturers' Championship last year.

Goff said: "It's a thrill to start the season in the quickest front-wheel drive car on the grid. Driving for a works team is the pinnacle and I'm chuffed that we're working with Triple Eight and MG. Over the course of the past three years they've shown that the MG is a race winner and a championship contender.

"This is an important step in my career and I have come here expecting to win races. I know what it takes to do that, I've shown my ability in the Clio Cup, and now I have a BTCC car and team that will give me a platform to challenge from. There's a really good buzz at Triple Eight; you walk around the factory and there are so many trophies and references to winning in the BTCC. Add that to having a former BTCC champion in Andrew (Jordan) in the team, it really gives me a lot of confidence for the year ahead."

Triple Eight Racing Managing Director, Ian Harrison, said: "We spoke to several drivers over the off-season, but when we found out Jack was available it was clear he was the best option for us. Everybody remembers the 2013 last round at Brands with (Gordon) Shedden and we need him to try to replicate that, albeit on a regular basis.

"We'll aim to get him working in a methodical way, aid his development as a driver and give him a car that will allow him to show what he can really do behind the wheel in a BTCC car. We need Jack to be running in the top eight all the time and becoming a regular front-runner as the season progresses to enable us to defend the manufacturers title for MG. Jack is the perfect compliment to Andy."
