If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world.
I was quoted in a few articles in the mainstream media this week…
1. Paul Brent’s article Trim Investing Fees To Boost RRSP Returns was on the front page of Thursday’s RRSP Investing section of the National Post.
2. Jonathan Chevreau featured a small quote in a piece that also ran in the same day’s edition of the National Post titled Despondent? It’s Probably Time To Buy
3. Larry MacDonald also had a few quotes in his Globe and Mail piece A Relief Valve For RRSP Holders

This Week’s Racing Video
This is another video showing the testing of a Formula 1 engine (next week, I’m going to show a video of how they tested them in the “old days”). This particular Renault powerplant consumes 70L of fuel per 100km. A typical road car would consume perhaps 8L of fuel per 100km!
