Well it’s Friday again, and that means its time for the weekly edition of Lap Of The Blogs. I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekly racing videos. I’ll get right to it as I forgot my battery charger at the office and the battery in my laptop is on it’s last legs! :)

This Week’s Racing Video
Rally car drivers are amongst the craziest (and most skilled) drivers on the planet. This video is a compilation of some WRC Rally Cars (highest form of rally racing) making some big jumps during the course of competition. In case you didn’t know: there are no practice runs in a rally. The driver and co-driver can do a very slow speed reconnaissance run and that’s it. Yeah, these guys are crazy!
