With two years of experience in the British Touring Car Championship under his belt, Jack Goff made the landmark move to MG Triple Eight Racing for the 2015 season, alongside former champion Andrew Jordan.

At a delicate stage of his career, Goff's appointment to the works MG outfit appeared to be the breakthrough chance he needed, with many intrigued to see how the 24-year old would fare, particularly against Jordan.

Indeed, if sitting alongside Jordan wasn't pressure enough, Triple Eight also arrived into the new season as one of the favourites for the championship.

Goff proved his worth almost immediately and emerged from the opening race weekend at Brands Hatch as the co-leader of the championship, an honour he shared with Matt Neal. But as the season progressed it became clear that the MG6 GT wasn't capable of powering either Goff or Jordan to the title.

Both Goff and Jordan remained evenly matched throughout the majority of the year but the former champion's supreme level of consistency ultimately won through during the pair's inter-MG battle. However, Goff's breakthrough victory at Snetterton handed MG their only win of 2015, a feat Jordan was unable to match.

Unsurprisingly, four podiums – including his maiden win at Snetterton – launched Goff into, by far, his best championship finish to date with ninth position.

About the vote:
Rather than repeat the Drivers' British Championship standings, the BTCC Driver of the Year poll asks viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, riding style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results and scoring each of the top twenty from this year's BTCC standings with a mark out of ten.
