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.
Lucky me! I’m taking Friday off to rip around in some Formula 2000’s again – except this time I’ll have the pleasure of driving with Firestone Indy Lights Championship driver James Hinchcliffe. I’ve known James and his family for a while now (we met at the Bridgestone Racing Academy) and I’m pretty sure we’ll see him racing Indy Cars in the near future.
