Jack Goff optimistic of Silverstone success

Jack GoffMG Triple Eight Racing’s Jack Goff is heading into rounds 25,26 and 27 optimistic of a strong weekend after showing glimmers of promise at Rockingham.

Achieving a career-best in qualifying and going on to claim a brace of points finishes, the 24-year-old looked in good shape to fight for a podium before contact on the opening lap tarnished any chance.

Now with his tail in the air and his attention firmly set on this weekend’s penultimate meeting at the home of British motor sport, the BRDC Superstar has highlighted that another competitive Saturday showing will be needed if he is to challenge for podiums.

Despite former MG stalwart Jason Plato claiming three pole positions and six victories for the factory-supported outfit during his three-year tenure at Triple Eight, the former Renault UK Clio Cup champion admits both he and Andrew Jordan can’t expect to do the same due to how everyone else have moved forward.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Goff said: “We’re heading into Silverstone optimistic; the car has always gone well there although we know that everyone has moved their packages on a fair bit in 2015. That being said we have also moved the MG on that last year so this weekend is about getting the maximum out of what we have.

“The usual teams and drivers will be in the mix so qualifying towards the front will be even more important, as we have seen all season. If we can nail qualifying then we should be on for a good weekend so the aim has to be sticking the car on the front two rows ideally – if that box is ticked, podiums will be the next target.”
