The above links are concerning a currently unsolved but ongoing controversy, regarding a production car world speed record. There is - as of today - no confirmed resolution of the dispute, although I anticipate that in the next few days, someone will either eat humble pie** or 'put up or shut up'.
Enjoy watching how doubts have arisen and not yet been allayed.

TL:DR - On 6th Novemeber they said they'd try to re-run within 60 days, to dispel doubts.
