I suppose there are still some people who don’t know the results of the Ultimate W Expert Challenge (because I still get phone calls and emails asking who won as I didn’t actually post the results on the blog, only in the comments section). I’m happy to announce that yours truly was the winner and the prize was a development deal with the W Network to create a show for me to host. I’ll keep you posted on the progress and thanks for everyone’s support!

This Week’s Racing Video
Since I just bought a go-kart (picking it up on Saturday), I thought I would post a go-kart video. But not just any go-kart, a go-kart that can go crazy fast. The kart I bought is capable of about 100km/h or so, not the ones you see at the indoor karting tracks for kiddies, that’s just too slow… :) Enjoy!
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 sometimes 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. NOTE: you have to visit the actual website to see the embedded video – it may not appear in your email. Just click on the title of the email to see it…
