It’s a general rule pretty much everywhere, depending on the headlight one don’t always need to tape it.
I don’t have any lights on my bike except front blinkers (lazy) while doing track.

In some of the early videos lights and mirrors were still in place
Missing a van I keep everything on so I can go back home quickly once done.

Yeah, I did couple of track days last year having old mirrors on. But usually in organized track days they always ask to tape or remove mirrors for safety reasons. I didn’t know better in the start of last year. After all I began my track journey only last year so I had to learn on the go.
If one is doing allot of track-days van or any other means of bike transportation is essential and makes it easier. Btw go check how much the front light cost Incase of damage.

Track-day 03.09.19

First video from the last "big" track-day of the season. Managed to get pb time on the last session. Second time on this track ever, got to know the circuit somewhat at the end. Rear tire was brand new!
Enjoy!

AMatu, I've got a question for you after watching the video. Your left hand is up against the inside of the grip but your right hand hangs off to the outside and only covers about half of the grip. Just curious about how you came to adopt the position of your throttle hand.

I use one finger braking when riding track (gives me continuous control/ feeling of the throttle), that is why my right hand is more to the side. Also my right hand /wrist is damaged, if you noticed I usually modify my throttle grips because of this.
Great observation!
Cheers!
