Default First track day question

I haven't posted in a loooong time. I'm getting ready to to go Chuckwalla Valley Raceway Star School and wanted to know if my Pirelli Diablo Corsa III tires would be fine for the track? They are not new, but aren't in bad condition. Also they put in the info packet they will be selling gas. Should I take my bike on empty or half & half of 91 oct and fill the rest with race fuel there? Any advice would be appreciated thanks!

Race fuel is not needed and your machine will not take any advantage from it without being tuned for it. Your tires will do fine for everything up to full on race pace. Just keep your brake and throttle inputs smooth and allow 1-2 laps for your tires to warm up before trying to touch elbow. Have fun.
