Echoing what CYANiDE wrote, and from my own post: I don't want to rain on your parade, but to me the stock Mazda6 brakes seem woefully unprepared for track use. They are single piston calipers with street pads, etc. What CYANiDE suggest is probably a bare minimum standard, but I can't imagine those calipers are going to hold up to any kind of heavy repeated brake loading, let alone track use.

The track you're using seems pretty tight with minimal straightaways - it's primarily a go kart track. That's good, but you're likely to see a heck of a lot of wear and I'd be very concerned for safety with a stock brake package.
