the main thing is make sure your car complies with the required tech inspection and u have the needed safety gear.

second, make sure your brake pads are good, and you want to do a full brake fluid flush, with a high boiling point fluid (i use the Ford dot 3 (550ºF iirc))

third, change your oil

fourth, enjoy! i did my first track day last month and loved it. I have another in 2 weeks. I'm very excited
