Rowan Atkinson was among hundreds of drivers who descended on the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit for an annual classic car event.

The famed petrolhead and Mr Bean and Blackadder actor was among thousands who made the most of the weekend sun at the Goodwood Revival.

The event saw hundreds of classic cars and visitors dressed in vintage clothes celebrating motoring heritage by racing along the historic West Sussex circuit.

Atkinson, famous for his decades-spanning acting career, got behind the wheel of his car as he headed down the circuit.


The Johnny English star was among thousands of attendees, many of whom dressed in 40s, 50s and 60s attire to celebrate the classic event.

Alison Hammond was also there on Sunday. The This Morning host, 48, looked around at the vintage cars before jumping in one for a ride too

Drivers of all ages took to the circuit as part of the event which is one of the biggest events on the calendar at the West Sussex estate.

Goodwood is famed for its racing events including the annual Festival of Speed.

The new Mini Cooper went on show to the UK public for the first time.

The battery-powered model was only fully revealed in Munich last week. Priced from £30,000, the new Cooper keeps the same three-door layout as the car it replaces but adopts a far bolder exterior design.
