Eurotech Racing's Jack Goff is looking to replicate his encouraging performance by securing a slot on the front-row for tomorrow's opening BTCC race at Thruxton.

Goff has emerged from the practice running with the fastest lap of the weekend so far despite trailing his fellow Honda stablemate Gordon Shedden by 0.004s in the final session.

"It's always hard to say. You don't know where you are in testing. We know where we are but we don't know where everyone else is. The car felt pretty good," Goff told Crash.net.

"We made some changes in FP2 and we de-engineered the car if anything. We didn't quite get it right so we know we go back to where we were in FP1. The car balance was generally better in that session so I think we'll be alright."

The Eurotech Honda squad are arguably the favourites to clinch pole position after Jeff Smith led a Honda Civic Type-R top-four lock-out during the TOCA test at the same venue almost two weeks ago.

Despite topping the timesheets, Goff insists that his Eurotech squad hasn't stood still since the TOCA test.

"The lads have worked hard behind the scenes in the engineering department and they always come up with a good plan to try something new every time. We've tried new stuff here today and it seems OK," Goff continued.

"We haven't gone a million miles away from where we were during the test day because it was a pretty good baseline. We're tweaking bits and pieces."

Having taken a slight step backwards in FP2, Goff is confident only a minor few tweaks will allow him to challenge for pole position later this afternoon.

"I definitely want to go to front row. We all go out there for pole position but there's 31 other drivers going for that. It won't be easy but the guys have given me a great car so far today," said Goff.

"If we can fine tune a bit more and get it just a little bit better we should be in the hunt for pole."
