One of the feature events was the 10th anniversary of the Settrington Cup, which sees children in vintage pedal cars compete in heats from a traditional standing start and through an obstacle course to the chequered flag at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Households have been urged to submit electricity meter readings to power providers before the energy cap rise on Saturday. Submitting up-to-date readings before then will prevent companies from estimating electricity use and charging the higher rate for energy used before the price is increased, energy experts have said.
