Will these tires get me through another wknd?

I'm relatively new to track days, only done 3 so far. Will these tires get me through another wknd at a slow to mid intermediate pace? They are Q3's with a little less than 1000 miles on em. I've got replacements sitting in the garage but wondering if I should change them before or after the track.

Thanks,

Alex

Yeah, they look ok. A better question is how do they feel?

They feel good. I'd just hate to get there and find out they've only got one day left in em. I'm too new to the track to be comfortable out there on a sub 100 mile set of tires so if it's possible that's the case, I'd rather change em now than mid wknd. If everybody's in agreement that they'll safely make it through the wknd I'd rather do that so I'm not throwing away good tires.
