To drill or not to drill?

I am just finalising an order for a Dolan track champion. I am going to be using it almost completely for racing and training on a track. however, i am need to ride it to the track and so was debating getting a drilled fork (which i think is just a road equivalent). I was just wondering if this fork will be any different from the race dedicated one that it comes with and will it affect performance or ride in any way.
cheers

You should ask the friendly people at Dolan.

depending on where you live and ride, I would just ride it to the track no brakes and try not to skid.

flip flop (both sides fixed) between what your going to use at the track and something really easy to use on the roads.
