Jack Goff enjoys maiden MG test

Jack Goff enjoyed a successful start to his MG British Touring Car Championship career yesterday, racking up 300 kilometres in his first testing outing for the Triple Eight Racing team at Donington Park.

Goff, who was announced as Andrew Jordan’s teammate for the 2015 campaign last Wednesday, made his first appearance behind the wheel of a plain-liveried MG for his new team alongside the 2013 champion, clocking around 100 laps of the Leicestershire circuit.

Focusing predominantly on acclimatising himself with the MG as well as race simulation runs, the 23-year-old was clearly delighted by his experience in the car and felt an immediate difference from his previous two BTCC machines.

“It was a really good first day back at school; the Headmaster didn’t tell me off too much,” joked Goff.  “It’s been a long time since I got behind the wheel of a NGTC car and it was good to get so many laps in and blow away a few cobwebs.

“I pounded round and did a lot of laps, around 300km, not in search of overall pace, but the car is mighty quick on a race run on old tyres, so it’s given me a lot of confidence for the further tests I’ve got coming up.

“The VW was a step on from the Vauxhall, but this (the MG) feels like a bigger step on in terms of differences again. My initial thoughts are that the MG feels so much stronger; it really encourages you to push and I’m looking forward to doing just that at Snetterton on Friday.”

Triple Eight Racing’s co-founder and Managing Director Ian Harrison was pleased to see both of his team’s cars performing consistently on track for the first time in 2015.

“This was a very successful test, in which we covered a high mileage with both cars,” he said. “Andrew and Jack had very different targets today, but both completed many laps and delivered consistency and pace in good measure. We’ve got more to work through with each driver before the start of the season, but I’m pleased with the progress being made.”
