Music, motorsports and well-executed videography are an irresistible cocktail. Just ask The Piano Guys. The group has made a name for itself by composing beautiful classical arrangements and pairing them with well-shot videos, and their latest effort took the group to the Spring Mountain Motorsports track just outside of Las Vegas. With three percussion tracks, six piano tracks, a staggering 43 acoustic cello tracks and 48 vocal tracks, The Piano Guys created a flawless arrangement of Carl Orff's "O Fortuna," the first movement of "Carmina Burana" that plays well against the raucous noise of a couple of Radical SR3 racers screaming their way around the desert track.

According to the YouTube description, The Piano Guys created the arrangement in just three days. Orin Harker and Simon Shepherd were kind enough to lend their behind-the wheel talent for the on-track shots, and the finished product will make your hair stand on end. Hit the jump to enjoy the video for yourself.

      Autoblog ... O Fortuna is the first arrangement of the score "Carmina Burana", and the most famous element of it. It isn't called "O Fortuna Carmina Burana".

      Yawn. Carmina Burana is incredibly overused cliche music. Right up there with 'We Are The Champions." Groan.
