You'll be fine with the current set for 1 track day.

As for becoming an expensive hobby, if you become addicted to it like many of us, well, it can be. You'll go through tires and brake pads regularly. I change the oil after 3-4 track days, which is also $120 per change. So it all adds up, but you have to pay to play. Actually, paying for the track time is the cheapest part.

Do you have PS2's now? Like others have said, they're not very good for the track. They get greasy after a couple of laps, and they're expensive. I'm currently using Bridgestone RE-11s, and I've been really happy with their performance so far. I'll probably try Yokohama AD08s next.
