Rowan Atkinson, Sir Chris Hoy, Chris Evans and TV chef James Martin were among those taking part with Sir Jackie Stewart, Derek Bell and Sir Stirling Moss also adding to the excitement.

There were racing anniversaries, the Ford GT40, Jim Clark’s first world championship and the Mini Cooper S were celebrating their 50th year.

A real revival highlight was the Royal Automobile Club TT Celebration Race, a one-hour, two driver event – evoking the spirit of the races which took place at Goodwood between 1960 and 1964.
