Right Choice for Goff with Team HARD. Racing
Team HARD. Racing has announced that Right Choice Insurance will return to the fold as a team partner alongside newly-announced driver Jack Goff.
RCIB Insurance first adorned Team Principal, and then driver, Tony Gilham’s Vauxhall Vectra back in 2011. The forthcoming campaign marks its ninth season in the BTCC and brings close friends Mike Joseph and Tony Gilham back together in a working relationship once again.
The team are anticipating continued growth and expansion this year, with Goff sealing a last-minute return to the squad that started it all for him in the BTCC. The High Wycombe racer is no stranger to flying the flag for RCIB and the last time team, sponsor and driver worked together was in a memorable race at the end of 2013 when Goff managed an Independents’ victory and second overall in the final race of the year.
“Not only is it great to be back with the team that gave me my opportunity in the BTCC but to have the backing of Mike Joseph of RCIB with their continued support means so much to me,” said Goff.
“Just over a day ago we were looking at a year away from racing for the first time in over 20 years. This season was looking like I’d be a fan of the BTCC, watching at home for the first time since my debut in. It’s a late deal but I have every confidence in my ability and having seen the way the team has come on over the last few years it will be interesting to see how we fair come the season opener in just two weeks time.
“It feels like coming home in many ways and very much a family atmosphere which is great, so to do it with the guys that all started together feels even better.”
Mike Joseph, RCIB Managing Director, added: “Having been there at the beginning when Team HARD first brought Jack onto the BTCC grid, it gives me great pleasure to be working with them both again and keeping Jack on the grid for 2019. Jack is a truly great talent and in the Volkswagen CC I can see him having a great season alongside Carl Boardley. Jack is a great ambassador for our brand, and it will be very interesting to see what we can achieve together.”
