Goff Impresses In Maiden BTCC Test

1 Mins read

Newly-crowned Renault Clio Cup Champion Jack Goff was delighted with his first run in a British Touring Car at Silverstone today (Thursday, November 15).

The 21-year-old, driving Team-HARD.‘s NGTC Vauxhall Insignia, admitted he did not have as much track time as he would have liked but impressed both the team and his sponsors.

Early morning fog delayed proceedings until nearly midday and when testing did get underway the track was far from its best – but this did not deter the youngster.

“The conditions weren’t the best, it was very greasy, but I gelled with the car straight away and it felt really good,” he told“It’s something I’ve been working towards for a long time now so it was a dream come true just to be out on track. The opportunity that Tony [Gilham] gave me was brilliant really.”

Goff had little trouble adapting to the new car, he said, and is looking forward to more seat time in the near future.

“We clicked with the car,” he commented. “It was a really positive day. You get a taster of it and you really want to go again. I loved every minute of it – but I want another go now! Having that taster gives you that excitement to work even harder, it gives you more determination to go out there and make it happen.”

Goff and Gilham had both previously stated their intent to make something happen for 2013 and the Dartford outfit’s boss re-affirmed his desire to team up with the Clio champ.

He added: “[We were] very impressed with Jack, [he] looked very comfortable from the off. [We] would love to work with him next year.”
