British Touring Car squad Tony Gilham Racing has signed Renault Clio Cup champion Jack Goff for its 2013 line-up.
Goff scored two Clio Cup victories on his way to the 2012 crown and tested with Gilham's BTCC squad last month.
The 21-year-old has now been confirmed in one of the two NGTC Vauxhall Insignias Gilham plans to run next year.
"We've been talking to Tony for quite a while," said Goff. "We had the test and gelled straight away; he's been keen to help us make the step to touring cars."
Goff, who has raced against BTCC race winners in Dave Newsham and Aron Smith in Clios, believes he can run at the front.
"I feel like we're quick enough," he added. "People have gone from Clios and won races recently and I think I'm at least as quick.
"Hopefully we can win a race in the first season. I can't wait to get out there."
Gilham said: "We tested Jack and he was quick immediately. He's level-headed and it's a natural progression from the Clio Cup."
