Hi does anyone race or ride trackdays? I am wanting to get involved, but am wanting to know if it would be a better idea to run slightly high prior to a session or race and does type 1 diabetes restrict your ability to obtain a race license? My big fear is that I no longer get hypoglycemic symptoms and completely disoriented and confused and yes I would agree that should restrict me from competing but I would like to participate during a track day session.
I've done several track days. Each session lasts 20 minutes so it's not too hard to maintain control. I do let it run a bit higher (~150 - 200) so I don't have to worry.
What I noticed is that with the rush of adrenalin I did not feel the same things I normally feel, so don't count on feeling your lows. It is actually quite a workout. I ended up putting on about 100 miles at the end of the day.
I would highly recommend you go for it. It is a rush!!! What kind of bike do you ride? What track?
I ride a Honda 919 and a Suzuki 400 Supermoto. I'm thinking of trying a supermoto race this year. I ride at Pacific Raceways near Seattle.
