Whatever works for each photographer but when I used to shoot motorsports I always carried two Canon T90s. The idea was when the main body broke (never happened) I could switch to the backup without any hesitation or thought. After many events without any problems I ended up usually loading different films (or the same with different lens choices) in each and designating the different film type with colored tape.
