Most owners tracking their cars replace them with Brembo steel rotors and pads, and put away the CCBs for resale. Seems like a pricey option just for bragging rights, since good CCBs are crap on the streets (don't heat enough), plus squeal like crazy.
not sure where you got that info. 11 track days on my F430 with carbon ceramic brakes on stock pads. 86% left on pad and rotors and I run the car pretty hard and a couple sessions on race tires. Same thing with my old Challenge Stradale.
