If everything is working correctly then the main problems I see are overheating tyres and brakes.
You'll need to increase your tyre pressures a few extra PSI, this will reduce the flex in the tyre a bit when cornering and also in theory stop them getting so hot.
Brakes take a real punishment and you'll use a lot of pad material but as you have new pads then should be ok but be careful of brake fade.
I tend to do about 5-10 laps then come in for 1/2 hour to let everything cool down before going back out - might depend on the track though.
Most tracks have pretty stringent regulations and they should give you instruction on track behavior and you may need to have the car scrutinized at the start of the day. You'll also need a proper crash helmet, dont take any short cuts here. Remove any loose items from the car prior to going to the track. You'll also need to fit the screw in tow hook to the car
BTW after you come in from the track dont sit with your foot on the brake or leave your car with the handbrake on, just leave it in gear with the handbrake off
