Jack Goff stays with Eurotech Honda for 2018 BTCC season

The two-time BTCC race winner joined the team last year and took three overall pole positions and a victory at Silverstone on his way to sixth in the standings.

Goff says that staying with the team will allow him to build on 2017.

"This will be the first time that I have been with the same team for two consecutive seasons since 2014, and that is a great foundation for me," said Goff.

"I worked well with my engineer Adam Tanner last year, and from Snetterton in July onwards, we unlocked some real pace from the car.

"We had three poles which proved our Saturday pace, and we were flying on Sundays too."

Goff scored five podiums in the second half of 2017 to mount a challenge for the Independents Trophy, in which he finished second to Tom Ingram's Speedworks Toyota Avensis.

The 26-year-old says it's a "great feeling" not to be scraping a deal at the last minute.

"We can take what we discovered last year and improve even further in 2018. It is a great team, I feel comfortable with Eurotech and the Honda is a great car," he said.

"I am very optimistic about the year ahead, and it is great to get this deal done early. Usually, I am scrapping about until the last minute for a drive. This is a great feeling."

Goff's team-mate has yet to be revealed, although it is tipped to be Mini Challenge champion Brett Smith.

Smith took over the BTCC seat halfway through last season when his father Jeff, who owns the team, was badly injured in a qualifying accident at Croft.

Eurotech Racing will also run the Honda Civic of Matt Simpson.
