How much risk do I run of encountering limp mode? The course itself is expensive, as is food/hotel/taking a day off/gas/driving there, etc. so I want to be reasonably confident I'll get my money's worth and not be on the sidelines waiting for my engine to cool.

Minimal risk. At 50-60F you should be fine. Keep an eye on coolant and oli temps and let us know how it goes!
