Jack Goff ready to carry momentum of first win to Knockhill

Jack GoffMG Triple Eight Racing’s Jack Goff is targeting carrying the momentum of a first BTCC win at Knockhill this weekend in rounds 19, 20 and 21.

Following on from his commanding lights-to-flag victory in the reverse grid encounter at Snetterton, the 24-year-old is looking to continue his fine run of form with a trio of top five finishes at what has traditionally been the MG6 GT’s ‘bogey circuit’.

“It’s great to now be heading into a race weekend as a BTCC winner and the messages of support since Snetterton have been unbelievable,” Goff said to BTCC Crazy. “I’ve always had the belief in myself and the team that we could get the job done and I’m over the moon we did – now we need to keep the momentum going.

“Heading to Knockhill, the car in the past has never really been suited there, but with that being said the team have changed a lot of things over the winter with the pace increasing. I’m quite hopeful that we can go there and be on the pace from FP1 straight away but we’ve got to nail that lap in qualifying.

“If I got three top five’s or six’s then I would be very happy given how it won’t be one of our strongest circuits. If we set a quick lap time for race two or even luck in on the reverse grid and we’re near the front, I won’t be giving a position up for anybody.”

Making his debut at Knockhill 12 months ago with Team BMR, Goff admitted that the challenging eight-corner layout is already a favourite of his.

Goff added: “Last year was my first time ever competing at Knockhill so I’ve only done a handful of laps there but I loved it – it provides a real challenge.

“The undulation makes it even harder as well and track knowledge is more of a factor than any of the other circuits we visit so it will be important to bank the laps in practice. I’m really looking forward to the weekend.”
