According to tirerack "As any autocrosser or racer who has tread rubber shaved off of his tires will tell you, low tread depth tires respond quicker."

thanks for your advice.

I would absolutely use the track as an excuse to finish up your tires. As long as it's not a wet track slick or low tread tires work best and have less heat build up than full tread tires. As long as there are no cords showing continue to track them.
