Podium for MG in BTCC finale at Brands Hatch

Jack Goff's MG6 earned a place on the podium in a thrilling finale of the 2015 MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.

In a race that saw the championship hunt go right down to the wire, Goff played his part in an enthralling finish that saw the MG driver finish the season on a high.

The decision from Goff to sacrifice race one in order to post a fast lap time for race two proved to be a good one as he claimed good points heading into the final race of the year. Both drivers opted to start race one from the pit lane, but were left slightly hampered by the tactic after an early safety car was deployed. The pair found some clear track later on in the race and posted lap times good enough to see Goff claim the sixth fasted lap in a 20th placed finish, while Andrew Jordan, who came home ahead of his team mate in the race in 19th, started race two from 11th.

Jordan was unable to improve on his 11th placed grid position in race two and therefore didn't benefit from the reverse grid in race three, whereas Goff was promoted to third after finishing fifth.

The final race of the day, and of the season, didn't disappoint in typical finals day fashion. Goff, who started third, was involved in a four-way battle for the podium and held off eventual champion Gordon Sheddon, whose fourth place was enough to pip Jason Plato to secure a second drivers' title.

Andrew Jordan battled typically bravely to cross the line in eighth place and finish fifth in the drivers' championship.
