Jack Goff will remain at Team HARD after signing a two-year contract extension until the 2022 British Touring Car Championship season finale.

Having been with the team he made his BTCC debut in 2013, Goff will continue forwards to drive for Team Hard Racing in the 2021/22 seasons.

Goff said: “I’m delighted to be remaining with Team HARD. Racing for another two seasons.

“I can’t fault the team’s commitment to win and family ethics, that for me is something really important.”

The team have been using the VW Passat CC since 2014.

Announced earlier in September, the VWs will be replaced by a lineup of two Cupra Leon hatchbacks from onwards of 2021 as the BTCC enters the Hybrid era in 2022.

Goff, who claimed his maiden victory for the team in 2019, continued:

“Now, we are well underway with the build of the brand new Cupra Leon and I’m super excited to be playing a major part in the cars development,” which is set to debut the UK market in the early months of 2021.

Tony Gilham, Managing Director at Team HARD, gave his thoughts:

“With new machinery for 2021, it was vital that we secured the services of a driver who can extract the maximum from our new Cupra and what better than to remain with one of the highest rated drivers on the grid.

“We found this season that we were unable to utilise our race pace due to less overtaking than usual, combining that with our lack of qualifying performance always put us on the back foot.

“A new car for 2021 with an extensive test programme will help move us forward on outright pace.”

Goff himself looks optimistic to fight for overall victories after enduring seasons with the Passat CC which ceased production in 2017 (replaced by the Arteon).

The team’s engineering department will be kept busy over the winter break to design and develop the Cupra for 2021.

The 2021 season will kick off on April 3/4th, Brands Hatch.
