edit [recordings are at the bottom!!!!]
Excited to say I'll be heading up to silverstone - with no special permission...just a crowd member with lots of time to spare over the weekend.
I have the impression the cars will be excruciatingly loud, my setup is rode nt5 pair --> Fostex FR2LE. Probably won't monitor, just will have earplugs in.
Any tips on technique and/or things that would be useful to know in this sort of situation?
Will I need in-line pads or anything special for the mics? In addition to the software -20dB pad?
Unlikely I'll be let in any media areas...but having fluffy mics have worked out well for this in the past, with a little bit of blag/charm.
