+1 to everything above.
There's a lot to learn, but here's what I've learned as a beginner.
Make sure you learn the race line (even though you'll could be slow). It's important for the riders behind you to have a sense of what you're going to do and where you're going to go and end up. If you're slow, and you hear bikes behind you, don't worry about it and don't look back, continue what you're doing. Remember, don't worry about someone else not being able to pass you. They paid the same amount of money you did, just continue on with your turn and keep focus. They'll get ahead of you when the time comes.
Also, don't follow your friends, chances are they'll have more experience. I would keep a safe distance behind someone else. If you have to follow someone, it should be a coach/controlled rider.
Have fun and take your time. The speed will come.
Oh, and be prepared to drain your bank account.
