Brake pad reccomendations for street/track?

Hey guys,

I'm taking my 968 up to Lime Rock Park for a D.E. event in august, and i figured i'd change out the brake pads for something that's good on the track, but one that i can use on the street as well.

Because i want to use them on the street, i would like something low-dust, cause i hate cleaning my wheels.

I've heard about the ceramic pads, that they're low-dust. Would they be ok for the track?

I don't know what pads are on my car right now, but they don't grab very well, so i want to replace them.

Anyone have any reccomendations?

Thanks

Fast924S - do you know what compound they are? Do they work at all when they're cold, maybe just not as well, or are they really bad when they're cold?

I changed to the Hawk HPS pads before my last DE (2 track days) and was very satisfied with them in terms of stopping power, wear, and brake dust.
