Welcome @oldtom to TFL. ENjoy our. happy little community.
Good to see that age is no barrier to your racing. A friend of mine is 84 and still races in Historic Touring cars.... still is a class winner showing the young 'uns the way round. And he still maintins the car totally himself..... and his wife is always by his side with the sandwiches and the stopwatches. :haha: He has been racing continuously since the 1960's.
