GM trans + track = bad idea?

I plan on taking my 328 to a local track within the next few months. Sadly the car is auto with the GM transmission. Car has 50K miles and the fluid and filter were changed at about 40K. Will the GM trans hold up on the track? I dont plan on tracking the car on a regular basis. Maybe 2-3 track days a year.

What kind of track? Road? How many sessions and how long is each? Drag? How many runs and how long in-between each??

Road course, 2.7 miles, 15 turns and half mile straight. Not exactly sure how many laps I'd be doing at once or the time in-between, I've only driven on track 2 times and it was in a rented car.
