I think it qualifies - here in the UK Morgan three-wheelers were allowed to compete in sidecar racing events to great effect, then there was Owen Greenwood's mini based three-wheeler that conquered all! Will try and find some more info & pics

here you go! http://www.britishpathe.com/video/ca...type-motorbike

Is that one of those 3-wheeled cars like Velorex used to make?

The three wheeler is one of the dreaded Morgans. I say dreaded because they still haunt the sidecar guys at classic motorcycle race meetings around the UK.

The image shown is at Lincolnshire's Cadwell Park circuit. Old school, but certainly guaranteed good racing. A well loved track on the east side of England.

Ah yes - but it qualified as a three wheeler due to close coupled rear pair, racers always like to exploit the loopholes in the rules...... George Brough did the same with his sidecar outfit, powered by an Austin Seven 750cc watercooled four with twin drive wheels... will also try and find that one.....

ok here it is...shaft drive as well
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brough_...or_Austin_Four - good for wikipedia!
