Jack Goff says he is surprised by the ease with which he has adapted to driving a rear-wheel-drive car during the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

The High Wycombe racer lies sixth in the race for the drivers’ championship after three race weekends, which have produced one podium finish and two fastest laps.

He will look to carry his fine form behind the wheel into race four, which takes place at Oulton Park this weekend, and hopes to continue his seamless transition into his new set-up.

Goff said: “I’m really happy with the start we’ve made to the season. It’s my first time racing a rear-wheel-drive touring car, so I thought it might take a bit of time to get up to speed.

“We’ve finished in the top 10 for all but one of the nine races, had a podium and some fastest laps.”

The 25-year-old’s strong showings have guided his Team IHG Rewards Club garage to sixth in the HIQ Teams’ Championship and to the top of the manufacturer/constructor standings.

His performances have certainly been eye-catching and team principal, Dick Bennetts, praised his driver’s adaptability.

He said: “Jack and Team IHG Rewards Club have made an impressive start to the 2016 season especially considering his lack of rear-wheel-drive experience.”

Bennetts went on to suggest Oulton Park could well play into the hands of Goff and Team IHG where they will look to make the most of the circuit’s improved traction.

Goff will arrive in Cheshire for the two day event safe in the knowledge he has achieved on the Oulton Park track before.

He claimed his first Clio Cup title at Oulton and will be looking for a maiden podium at a circuit where IHG have traditionally thrived.

The team secured double wins at the event in 2009 and 2014 and Goff is confident he has the car to challenge the races front runners throughout the weekend.

He said: “Oulton Park is a circuit where traction is really important and the BMW is very good in that area.

“I took my first Clio Cup win there and while I’ve never been on the podium at Oulton in a touring car, with the BMW I now have a car that’s capable of allowing me to do just that, so it’s definitely the aim.”

Goff’s sentiments were echoed by Bennetts who believes he has the ability to not only achieve a podium finish but can also claim a race win.

“Oulton has been a circuit where we have achieved some great results,” Bennetts explained.

“There’s every reason to be optimistic that Jack can challenge for podiums and even a win this weekend.”

Goff is not the only High Wycombe driver at the event where he will be joined by Tom Ingram and Matt Simpson.

The Speedworks Motorsport pair have had differing fortunes throughout the campaign with Ingram pushing for the top 10 in 11th position and Simpson sitting further back in 23rd.

Ingram has had a season punctuated by impressive showings with a particular highlight being a second placed finish at Thruxton last month.
