Neither Bridgstone R11 if you want to go for a treaded tyre.

I’ve used q3’s and r11’s. Both are good track tires. Q3’s are decent road tires as well. I have found that R11’s need to warm up a while and are a bit slick for a few minutes till they do. For track I’d use warmers for r11’s. Q4’s are the latest Dunlop. Better track tire, but less mileage than the q3. Q3’s and Q4’s are good after half a lap warmup. Hope this helps.

You definitely want warmers on R11's and you probably don't want to use them on the road either :-)

I prefer the less-stiff carcass of the Bridgestone, but plenty of major schools use Q3+ as their trackday choice. California Superbike school puts them on the students' S1000RR's and Yamaha Champions Riding School puts them on everything. Those should be good enough endorsements to pick whichever one feels better to you. They'll both hold up (The RS10's are dirt cheap and also hold up to track use, but not long on the street.) They'll all flat spot in 1000-1500 miles on the street. R11's are a track-only tire, and require warmers.
