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.
If you don’t normally watch the weekly racing videos, you may want to check this week’s edition – it’s priceless (video at the bottom of the post). Off to Vancouver for a week, but posts will (probably) continue… :)

This Week’s Racing Video
Okay, first I want to point out that there is more to this video than meets the eye. Second, no one was seriously hurt (although it looks like someone gets his head run over, he didn’t). And third, the magic of this video is truly revealed at the 1:45 mark. Hint: just watch the guy standing on the side of the car, and pay attention to his pants. That’s all I’m saying… enjoy! :)
