Tape the tailight, you need to block the brake lights and contain the pieces - God forbid.
Go over the bike completely, coolant (do they want water + waterwetter?), brake fluid front & rear, brake pads have good amount of material, misc bolts re-tightened (esp. drain bolt and caliper bolts), no nails in tires (been there), relax and enjoy.

When you only get 1.5 racedays and 2 trackdays out of a set of tires, losing a set after 1 trackday means having to buy another set. Arrrgh!
I am, however, grateful to the guy who saw the nail as I was about to leave the pits!!
