Jack Goff has confirmed that he will not be on the grid for the 2019 British Touring Car Championship season, despite the four-time winning working since October to attempt to put together a deal.

Goff has been a mainstay of the BTCC since 2013, working his way up the order each year, finishing eighth overall in the standings in 2018 after claiming a further two victories.

The 27-year-old started his BTCC career with Team HARD, spending two seasons with Tony Gilhams outfit before moving to the factory-supported MG team in 2015.

After a single season at Triple Eight, Goff moved to WSR for a year in 2016 in the IHG-backed BMW, before signing with Eurotech Racing for 2017, where he remained until the end of last year.

Goff confirmed via Twitter on Tuesday night that he had been unable to secure a deal for this year, with Power Maxed Racing confirming part of their driver line-up on Wednesday morning.

The situation for Goff became more difficult during the off-season when Eurotech announced that it would not be continuing in the BTCC, selling its cars and TBLs to AmD tuning which has already confirmed its line-up for 2019 of Rory Butcher and Sam Tordoff.

Goff has contested 177 races to-date in the BTCC, taking four victories and  19 podiums in the process.
