    They say with stock pads you can just use those until they wear out, not sure about other cheap street pads, you can ask around.

    For those events you just take their student course, usually the 1st day then 2nd day you start to race with instructor sitting next to you, no license needed. Or if you attended some driving school then you don't need to go as a student. good luck

    get a set of dedicated track pads and swap em out with the stock pads before & after the track days. If you want you can also just get dedicated rotors to go with the track pads which is the best route. I would use Motul RBF 600, its fine for street & track, just make sure you turn off the traction control completely at the track, unfortunately the torque vectoring & ESC cannot be completely disabled so there will always be some brake use being done by the ECU besides operator use.
