Jack Goff has joined reigning manufacturer champions Triple Eight Racing on a one-year deal which completes the team's driver line-up for the upcoming British Touring Car Championship.

The 23-year-old made his debut in the series two years ago after clinching the 2012 Clio Cup UK title. The Buckinghamshire-based driver has steadily progressed over the past couple of seasons, notching up a number of top-10 finishes in 2014. Goff joins former BTCC champion Andrew Jordan at Triple Eight with its MG6 GT car and says he's delighted at race for a factory-works team.

"It's a thrill to start the season in the quickest front-wheel drive car on the grid," Goff said. "Obviously as a kid growing up, driving for a works team is the pinnacle. 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 and 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 feels Goff is a perfect addition to support the team's defence of its manufacturer title from 2014.

"Jack is a young guy on a journey to become a top BTCC driver," Harrison said. "It's great that he is with us; he fits with what we're trying to do. 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.

"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."

Goff begins his MG career in BTCC with a debut test session next week (4th March) at Donington Park, with an additional two further tests ahead of the series launch at the same venue at the end of March.

"I just can't wait for my first run in the MG6," Goff added. "I got a taste of what to expect when I had my seat fitting recently and I've spoken to Andy Jordan too. Bring on 2015!"
