His visit coincided with Rolls-Royce announcing plans to add a sports utility vehicle (SUV) to its fleet.

Addressing a crowd which included local MPs Andrew Tyrie, Nick Gibb and Nick Herbert, Mr Cameron said: “I’m very proud to be the first Prime Minister to visit this great facility. I want to congratulate you on what you’re announcing today.

“Developing a new SUV, which means the safeguarding of jobs and livelihood here at Goodwood, are here in this business and it’s a very exciting development.

“The British government will do everything it can to back and support the work you are doing.”
