Winter or Summer Tires for March Track Day in WA?

Hey Guys,
Just signed up for a track day in March at Pacific Raceways in Auburn, WA. I currently have my winter wheels/tires on (17" w/ MICHELIN PRIMACY ALPIN PA3 ZP RUNFLAT). My only other set of wheels has summer tires on them (19" w/ CONTINENTAL CONTISPORTCONTACT 3 XL). Seeing as the average temp for around Seattle in March is 53, I'm not sure if I should leave my winter tires on, or switch over to the summer tires. What do you guys think?

I'd start by checking the rules of the club you signed up with, most do not allow winter tires for track events.

If it's above freezing, definitely run the summer tires. The winter tires will be destroyed after a couple sessions for sure.
