I've pedal struck once but didn't go down. Now I do what I do on the motorcycle at the track going around turns: I lean my body off the bike. Since the feet are clipped in, I lean my upper body as far as I can off the bike into the turn; this effectively moves the combined center of gravity (bike and rider) into the turn without the bike having to lean as far. This allows me to take the turns faster without excessively leaning the bike, avoiding the dreaded pedal strike.
