i as well have tracked and auto crossed my car. The time that the car is on an autox course is what 60 to 120 seconds at a time, hitting minimal speeds compared to the track, and minimal braking needed.

in my experience, i have done two full track days (running 4 1/2 hour sessions each day and two autox sessions), and im still on the same rotors and pads for 3 years now.... as with some of my friends who are on blanks and lost 50% of their pads alone on one track day. coincidence ?

I can understand the use of drilling on a carbon ceramic rotor where the material is compressed similar to a forging process which makes the rotor considerably stronger. Also a carbon rotor needs more heat to get to its proper operating temperature, and as it has been stated drilled rotors cause more heat to be generated it only makes sense to drill the rotors. When it comes to rotors its all in the metallurgy.

For a daily driver, slotted/drilled rotors don't help. Fade isn't a problem for emergency stops, that's something that happens at the track with repeated and long use of hard braking. And when cold, slotted/drilled technically have less braking power because there is less surface area for the pads to grab. But I know that what I say won't matter to anyone, this topic is like politics and religion; we all have our opinions, and what I say won't change your mind and might just piss you off.
