If you take the track pads off after your track days and not run them on the street they will last a long time.
I've got 5 weekends off of my current set of PF01s on my 330...expect to get 2 or 3 more. I've been pretty diligent about changing pads right before and after the track. The squealing provides extra motivation as well.

Before I was lazy so the pads didn't last as long. And I'm pretty sure the ST rotors run significantly cooler that what I was using before.
