Have fun and remember...
KEEP THE SHINY SIDE UP !!!!
One last piece of advice.
Having run on courses with banking, stay in the throttle until you enter the braking zone and the pavement begins to flatten.
If you lift out too soon, the nose of the car tends to dip toward the inside and the rear will start to come around.
That's a pretty scary feeling at speed.
Good luck and take LOTS of pictures and videos!!!

Thanks for the advice everybody - all checked in and can't wait for the morning!
I'll think I'll start @ your pressures, and 3F/6R on the dampers to give myself a little room in both directions.
BTW - we use the NASCAR front stretch, banking through 1 and 2, and the back stretch - this is gonna be fun!

Agreed with all the above.
Setups will not only vary from driver to driver, car to car, but also track to track.
FWIW, my setup at Miller Motorsports Park:
Tire Pressures-(Cold, set just before gridding)
My alignment was about dead on to what you're running.
I had 3/16" toe out on the front, (AutoCross setting) but dialed that out before I even hit the track.
I set it as close to 1/16" (toe out) as I could get it, short of throwing it on an alignment rack.
There's a few tidbits of advice in this thread:

yep, what weeasp said.
what may work for one person may not work for you. you must tailer your cars settings to the way you drive the car and react with it. even when you do finally get the setting the way you want they may not work another day due to different temps, humidity, etc.
It's something you'll have to feel out for yourself to have correct.

It is much easier to get in the car and find out potential...
If you start second guessing yourself even before you put rubber to pavement, then you are lost before you even get started.
Figure out YOUR starting point and go on the fly...

Nope - just a 20min session at VIR, trying to stay away from the train.
Right now I'm thinking I'll set the dampers in the middle (2F, 4R) like I use on the street and adjust from there.
