BTCC race-winner Jack Goff replaces Andy Priaulx at WSR

Thursday, January 14 2016

Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship title-winning team WSR has confirmed that Jack Goff will replace the departing Andy Priaulx in the Team IHG Rewards Club BMW 125i M-Sport for the 2016 season, which kicks off at Brands Hatch on 2/3 April.

Goff joined the BTCC in 2013 with Team HARD, remaining with the squad after it was taken over by Warren Scott's Team BMR operation the following season. Following impressive performances in the Vauxhall Insignia and then VW CC, he was chosen to join Andrew Jordan in the works MG squad last year. Comparing well to his former champion team-mate, Goff scored his maiden race victory at Snetterton.

The announcement means that Goff will switch to rear-wheel-drive machinery after three seasons in the BTCC, to which he graduated after winning the front-wheel-drive Renault UK Clio Cup. The 24-year-old has, however, raced sportscars in the MSVR-run Lotus Cup UK and Elise Trophy championships, giving him plenty of experience with this layout.

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

Dick Bennetts, WSR Team Principal, said: "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 BMWs and study all the data we have from 2015."

Goff is expected to be joined by Sam Tordoff and Rob Collard at WSR, whilst his transfer means that MG will field an all-new line-up for 2016, which is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets are available for 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship rounds at Brands Hatch Indy on 2/3 April, Oulton Park on 4/5 June, Snetterton on 30/31 July and Brands Hatch Grand Prix on 1/2 October. Entry is free for under-13s. For more information click on the links.
