Jack Alan Goff (born 6 March 1991 in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire) is a British auto racing driver. He was the 2012 Renault Clio Cup United Kingdom champion. He made his debut in the British Touring Car Championship on 31 March 2013 at Brands Hatch, driving for RCIB Insurance Racing.

Racing career[edit]

Renault Clio Cup UK[edit]

Goff joined the Renault Clio Cup United Kingdom championship for the 2010 season, securing a drive with Team Pyro after comparing well with race winner Dave Newsham in testing.[1]

He remained in the championship in 2011.[2] Goff stayed with the championship contenders for much of the season, and he took his maiden victory in the championship at Oulton Park. He later added a double win at Rockingham, but his results were not enough to mount a title challenge and he ended the season fifth in the championship, 52 points shy of fourth placed driver James Dixon.[3]

Goff remained in the championship for 2012, finishing in the top five in the first eight races of the year, including wins at Brands Hatch and Donington Park. Goff was leading the title challenge at the half way point of the season but his nearest rival Paul Rivett took four consecutive wins after the mid-season break, at Snetterton and Rockingham. Both endured a poor weekend at Silverstone meaning the title would be decided at Brands Hatch a fortnight later; with Rivett retiring in the first race, Goff took the title in the second race of the weekend by nine points.[4]

British Touring Car Championship[edit]

Tony Gilham Racing (2013–)[edit]

On 19 December 2012 it was announced that Goff would drive an NGTC Vauxhall Insignia for Team HARD. in the 2013 British Touring Car Championship season.[5] This came just over a month after he tested the car at Silverstone.[6] Two minutes into qualifying for the first round at Brands Hatch he collided with Colin Turkington who had spun on the exit of Druids and was stationary on the racing line. He hadn't set a time and started at the back of the grid for the first race.[7]
