You don't need special tires. However, be prepared to replace them after the weekend.
Make sure you have at least 30% break pad thickness left before driving on a track. If you have the original BMW pads, don't do more than 2 consecutive laps. If you plan on tracking often, get the brakes replaced by something that was actually designed for track use, e.g. StopTech ST-40.
