Here's what Shane meant to say:
Trackdays and racing are moderately expensive. Tires are a place where you're better off spending more, knowing you're going to grind the dollars into dust.
Takeoffs are a good option for new track riders. If you use them, we can offer more-sensible advice for pressures and the like for use on the track.
Street tires will work to a point - and you may be able to get to that point quickly. For your first trackday, it's probably a safe bet your street tires will work. Listen to Roger or anyone coaching you, especially if they advise moving to a track-purposed tire.
If you use takeoffs to keep costs down, they'll work to a point, also. After that point, you probably want to take up racing and use new tires. Your idea of what's affordable evolves at that point.

sorry for the thread jack but i thought it would fit with the changing gears topic.
