You didn't bed your pads. Light driving won't do it. You have to get the pads HOT so that you get a layer of the friction material on the rotor surface.

Otherwise, you won't get very good performance from your brakes.

Then if you lost a lot of pad, it was probably because you didn't bed in your pads before you drove on the track.
