He remained in the championship in 2011. 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.
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.
