I used to gaffa tape lights, remove mirrors and make sure a service was done.
Many tracks allow you to run coolant and not have lock wire for a trackday, although this is not the case for any race, 1st time or not.
Here is a list taken from an Aussie site called Trakdaze
that may help you along the way - it certainly did for me...

Change your oil/filter.
Unplug your headlights.
Remove your license plate.
Disconnect your brake light.
Change your coolant to Wetter.
Remember to empty your luggage compartment.
Taping over stick-on wheel weights is a good idea.
Check torque specs on all bodywork and outer bolts.
Don't forget the key to your bike (it happens, I've seen it).
New or basically new tire I would suggest getting some race tires.
Make sure you have no oil leaks. Tech really loves a clean and tidy engine and bike, help them out and help you out.
Chair x 2.
Cooler for drinks/food.
Food. You need to eat. Lol.
Empty your pockets and take off any jewelry.
E-Z up shelter if they don't have covered pits/paddock.
Extra clothes to change out of when you are done for the day.
Hat,sunscreen and sunglasses a must especially for those who go to watch.
Flip flops...yes, flip flops (for chillin' in between sessions, easy on easy off).
Leathers, helmet gloves, boots, back protector. A clear and tinted visor is also good.
A buddy. VERY helpful.
Bring your licence with you on the day.
Notepad. You will learn a lot talking to others, it is good to take notes.
Pit bike. Bicycle, scooter, pocket bike ect. Sucks walking end to end in the pits in leathers.
On the day
Check your tire pressure before you hit the track. If you are on Pilot Powers the front is 30 and rear is 28
(Per Michelin specs).( Michelin Power Race is 30front and 22 rear...yes 22 rear).
Something to clean visor.
TIRE GAUGE, TIRE GAUGE, TIRE GAUGE, TIRE GAUGE.
Bring BOTH a spool type rear stand AND one that lifts by the swing arm itself.
Electrical tape. You can put a strip of it across the top of your visor during the last couple of sessions to block the sun.
Last But Not Least
Take riders school if they have one.
Emergency contact sheet. Have it on you at all times. Wrecks happen.
Money, bring some extra cash in case you need more food, gas, parts ect.
If you are going with a group talk to them about any tricky corners or lines.
Make a checklist. Go over each thing and make 100% sure you have it with you. It really sucks forgetting things.
MAKE THIS LIST AND GIVE IT TO ANOTHER PERSON WHO KNOWS YOU
ON PAPER LIST THE FOLLOWING:
Any past/current medical problems. IE: Diabetic, surgery, fractures....
Any medications that you currently take.
Any allergies you have.
Date of birth.
Your private medical doctors name and where they are located.
Several phone numbers for emergency contact along with their addresses.
*edit* Most of all have fun. Track days aren't about braking track records, they're about safely learning your bike and how far it can be pushed through a corner. Pick someone a little faster than you and watch their lines. Enjoy
