Have your say

It was a glorious weekend of racing, air displays and all things vintage.

Tens of thousands of people went the famous Goodwood estate near Chichester for the annual Goodwood Revival.

The Battle of Britain air displays took place alongside the motor racing and crowds were treated to special displays featuring legendary Second World War planes including Spitfires and Hurricanes.

To mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this year’s festival featured a special exhibition of more than 35 iconic planes, including the world’s only airworthy Bristol Blenheim.

The planes were a major draw for spectators who are able to get within feet of the famous fighter planes.

Formula One racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart was at the event – followed everywhere by a constant throng of people.

Sir Jackie was happy to have photos with the many who wanted to be pictured with him as he took a group of people around the paddock of famous racing cars.

Children in peddle cars took part in their own race.

And hip-hop singer Eve posed for pictures next to a line-up of the most expensive classic Ferraris ever put together.

A surprise visitor was Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

He said: ‘A pal said he was coming, I’d heard about it from lots of people but never been before.’
