Trio of top ten finishes leaves Jack Goff in the title picture

Jack Goff continued his consistent 2015 campaign with another trio of points finishes at Cheshire’s Oulton Park this past weekend.

The MG Triple Eight Racing finished 7th, 9th and 8th across the respective three races around the Island configuration to further strengthen his position in the championship.

Despite not having the opportunity to push for a rostrum finish, the 24-year-old was content with how his weekend panned out, especially after the dramas of Saturday.

Goff said: “Our weekend started well, with good pace in the two free practice sessions. Qualifying was also going to plan, but then we had an issue where we lost my lap times due to the car failing a ride-height check, so with five minutes to go, I hadn’t set a timed lap.

“I managed two quick laps, and did enough to get eighth on the grid. If we’d had one more lap I could’ve found another tenth, which would’ve put us fourth.”

Turning his attention to Sunday’s triple-header, he continued: “As far as races go, it was all a bit of a procession. The top nine were pretty much the top nine in all three races, but the order was usually determined by the start positions.

“You could say that Oulton is becoming the Monaco of BTCC, where qualifying is so vitally important to ensure a good race result. However, despite this, we came away with another three top-ten finishes, which is good for the championship.

“We just need to make sure we nail qualifying at Croft and give ourselves the best chance in the races.”

Goff now heads into rounds 13, 14 and 15 at Croft sitting eighth in the drivers’ standings and trailing points leader Jason Plato by 53 points.
