I have never run them, but have a riding buddy that can carry a decent pace (he's never been on track, but I would place him mid-B) that has. If it is a dry track and you are the same pace or faster, you will eat them up. I love Michelin, but will not buy that tire as I am substantially harder on them and no they wont last. If it is wet they will prob be fine. In other words, I would bring your other set and be prepared to swap if it dries out. And if you are going to do that, why not just go with a rain/track tire?
Personally, I try to stay off the track if it's wet. I did it once, dude in front of me went down, I backed WAY down, and went down three corners later. Just not worth the risk to me. Rain tires are way to expensive and will tie up another set of wheels.
I am getting ready to buy a set of the Road 5s for road tires as they got away from the sipping on the edge. I am hoping they can handle knee dragging in the dry and can handle decent lean in the wet. The PR2s have worked for me for years, but they are old/hard to find now.
If you are racing, that is different. You need the practice as you will have wet races...
