I did not go this year but recently spotted these photos of the BMC display on the website below.

"The March Motor Works is a space that combines creativity with nostalgia, as Goodwood teams up with some of the finest automobile marques to recreate car workshops of old. As well as being a lot of fun to explore for Revival guests, it is also a chance for prominent brands to show off their heritage, which means plenty of automobilia on display and all manner of interesting facts to fuel the passion of the classic car enthusiast. In 2014, the 'March Motor Works' saw Rolls-Royce, BMW and BMC under the inspection lamp."

The Goodwood Revival 2014 offered a retro treat for Mini fans with this period-themed BMC works garage display in an area of the 'March Motor Works' presented by BMW Group Classic. The inside of the workshop was festooned with antique tuning parts, tools and imagery, and on display: 33 EJB is the replica (now owned by Paddy) of the car that took Paddy Hopkirk and Henry Liddon to victory in the 1964 Monte Carlo rally, 8 EMO is another ex-works car (again Hopkirk/Liddon), and OBL 48F was one of the last works Minis to be prepared by the BMC Competitions Department in 1967 (both now owned by TV chef, James Martin). Also not forgetting the grey BMC Service Mini van.
