Goff moves to WSR BMW for 2016

Jack Goff has left Triple Eight MG Racing to join West Surrey Racing for the 2016 British Touring Car Championship.
Jack Goff will tackle the 2016 British Touring Car Championship behind the wheel of the IHG Rewards Club backed BMW 125i M Sport after signing with West Surrey Racing.

Goff joins Team IHG after spending the 2015 season with MG Triple Eight Racing, where the 24 year old scored his first ever BTCC victory at Snetterton.

Following Andrew Jordan's exit from MG at the end of last year, Goff's departure from same outfit means there are now two vacant seats to be filled at Triple Eight Racing.

Moving into his fourth season in the championship, Goff acknowledges his move to WSR must equate to an immediate title challenge.

“I am extremely proud and honoured to have been selected to drive for Team IHG® Rewards Club," said Goff.

“Representing such a well-known brand, with a clear history of supporting racing talent, is fantastic and I hope to 'reward' the faith shown in me. Similarly the prestige of driving a BMW for a legendary team like West Surrey Racing represents a real dream come true for me.

“I've experienced BTCC podiums and took my first victory last season, so now I am looking at stepping up another level. Ultimately I want to become BTCC champion and challenging for the title is my immediate goal – I can't wait to get started with WSR and Team IHG® Rewards Club.”

Having contested each of his three BTCC campaigns in FWD machinery, Goff will have to adapt to the RWD 1 Series but with the 'extensive' winter programme put into place, WSR boss Dick Bennetts doesn't expect that to be an issue.

“We are very excited with IHG® Rewards Club's decision to take Jack onboard, as we have watched him develop into a top BTCC driver over the last couple of years.

“The 2016 Dunlop MSA BTCC championship is shaping up to be another great season, so with Jack joining WSR it will further strengthen our already strong line-up in our BMW 125i M Sports, which are currently undergoing an extensive development programme.

“We have a lot of pre season testing planned, so that will be good for Jack to have time to adjust to our RWD BMW's and study all the data we have from 2015.”
