BTCC race winner Jack Goff has joined the West Surrey Racing team for an assault on the 2016 championship, parting ways with the factory MG team.
The 24-year-old secured his first BTCC win last season with the Triple Eight MG squad at Snetterton, which proved to be the team's only victory of the year, en route to finishing ninth overall.
And, despite expressing a desire to remain with MG at the end of last season, Goff will now race a BMW 125i M Sport for 2014 champions West Surrey Racing, replacing newly-announced Ford WEC driver Andy Priaulx in the team's IHG Rewards Club-liveried entry.
“Representing such a well-known brand, with a clear history of supporting racing talent, is fantastic and I hope to reward the faith shown in me," said Goff.
"Similarly the prestige of driving a BMW for a legendary team like West Surrey Racing represents a real dream come true for me.
“I’ve experienced BTCC podiums and took my first victory last season, so now I am looking at stepping up another level. Ultimately I want to become BTCC champion and challenging for the title is my immediate goal."
West Surrey Racing will again field three cars in the series this year, and it is expected that incumbents Sam Tordoff and Rob Collard will both remain on board for another season.
