Sound of Petrol

Postby miles thomas » Sat Apr 18, 2015 9:21 pm

If you dont like the old French chap then forward to about 1:57 where the car is got ready.If anyone knows why there is a piano in the back ground being played by Darth Vader let us in on it. If you just want the engine then you need 3:30 for the graet sound of petrol.
There are others out there so lets listen to yours and i will sit here and crank my nob off/up :up

I think the piano is to give it an evocative atmosphere of solitude as one imagines being in the cockpit racing along the Mulsanne straight, in period, and without any of those annoying chicanes in the way.

I like the way race engines are started up, no sympathy, just plenty of revs to get it up to temp......ready for the off.

Certainly sounds good after a few laps, and the host (maybe he is the owner) shows such a smile as it blasts pasts near the end.

Awesome sounds :-)
