One of the best features of slotted/drilled rotors is that they channel away the gasses that build up with high-heat on organic pads. You don't get much of that on ceramic pads, though. Somebody can confirm though, I'm sure there's still tons of brake fade on ceramic pads on the track. For heavy-duty street, they'll be good for cooling under heavy breaking. If auto wagner's gold pads are ceramic, then that's fine, if it's anything else, I'd go with the breakmotive stuff. Also, for an extra $1.50 a rotor, why not upgrade to slotted/drilled?
