The rational person lets verified facts form or modify his opinion.  The ideologue ignores verified facts which don't fit his preconceived opinions.

Also Green Envy the new replacement for the Killajoule electric sidecar has gained another  " wheel " for the FIA event

Are you sure about that extra wheel for the event?  I know Eva and Bill had fitted a fourth wheel for extra stability driving around the parking lot.  I could have missed mention of said wheel in Eva's updates, I suppose.

According to the builder, 'Green Envy' is an electric sidecar outfit.

The organisers (DLRA) do state that the follow on event to their speed week is for both FIA and FIM World records (and the FIM does list the event on their webpage but there are few details No. 197/01 - but that is not unusual). 

Adding just a fourth outrigged rear wheel does not convert a motorcycle with sidecar into a 'car' (in Europe an Automobile). The definition of an "automobile" is strictly defined by the FIA. Much more work would have been needed to the planned vehicle to ensure that is steered by two wheels and powered through two wheels.
