Elderly member having renewal problems

#1 Post by Philip R Trenholme » Sat Dec 03, 2011 4:07 am

Got renewal reminder.
Finally got logged in after recovering user name and password.
Clicked on renew membership in the drop down menu.
Dialog tells me to log in but I was just told I was logged in.
Can anyone help an elderly person (approaching eighty) to renew?

Nice drive! Very entertaining.
What were YOU doing at the back of the grid? You were clearly faster than the majority of the cars on the track. You go well for an old fart. :wink:

I just read the new book on Elva who also built Formula Junior cars. What engine is in your Lotus?

Hi Phil,

It sounds like your web browser logged you out. It shouldn't do that unless you specifically log out of the site.

What web browser are you using?

Please log in and immediately go to "Renew Membership" in the "Membership" menu at the upper right.

Let me know what happens.

Best regards,

I really do need help with my membership renewal.

Lotus engine is an English Ford (59 Anglia), pre-crossflow, based. This was Cosworth's first race engine I believe. 1100 cc, now available from Richardson in UK and others for about $25,000.

Was at back of grid because I was too lazy/tired to make AM practice. Makes the video much more dramatic. Had I started about 8th or 10th where I should have, the video would be very boring. My new engine blows up in the 5th lap as noted by the puff of smoke. This was 2nd engine failure in 2 races - a result of using an old piece of hose on the suction side of the dry sump system.

Less exciting but 356 related racing video:

Barry,
Thanks. In stumbling around I finally got to the renewal page and renewed for three years so I wont have to fumble around for at least 3 years.

Phil-The 356 video was even better. I like how you forced the guys in front to self-destruct. They just couldn't take the pressure.

Is that your son in front of you?

I caused the problem when I (black stripes) got inside my son at the end of the straight. I delayed braking too long. Fortunately my son spun along side me without collision.The Mini filming us went by as you can see. My son is the better driver as you can see by his line. He also has disc brakes. My 63B was 10 from the end of B's and drum brakes.
