MG Triple Eight Racing’s Jack Goff enjoyed another consistent weekend at Croft to round off a solid first half of the 2015 season.
The 24-year-old entered the weekend having amassed 11 points finishes from 12 races and looked to continue his rich vein of form around the 2.1 mile North Yorkshire circuit.
Like team mate Andrew Jordan, set-up issues through free practice left the former Clio Cup champion entering qualifying slightly unsure where he would stack to the rest of the front runners. In the end, 8th position was the best time to come from Goff, who had sat 3rd earlier in the session.
Battles between Adam Morgan and Matt Neal throughout all three races left the two-time podium finisher taking a brace of 10th place finishes and 8th in the final encounter, stretching his run to 14 from 15 races heading into the summer break.
Looking back on the weekend as a whole, Goff said: “It was another consistent weekend where we scored three top ten’s, but we now need to be chasing for podiums. In race three we showed that we had the pace to challenge towards the front.
“We made the right decision using the soft tyre in race one but had I been able to get a clear lap then the weekend may have panned out differently. I think had we not been stuck behind Matt Neal then we would have been able to post a time good enough for the front few rows; hindsight is a wonderful thing though.
“We made a positive step in the final race so we can head home feeling happy that we are moving in the right direction.
“I’m not going to go home feeling too deflated, but it’s not been one of those weekend’s where I will be throwing a party.”
Goff heads into the second half of the season sitting 10th in the championship standings.
