So if I have a track day at the end of June an keep competing. These would be a good investment?

What kind of track day? Are you talking drag strip, autocross, oval track, or road course? It won't do you much good in a straight line on the drag strip, unless you're putting down some serious HP (enough to twist the car). On road courses, autocross events and anywhere you will experience fast, tight turns, you will feel a difference.
They are designed and intended tie and/or triangulate together the front (or rear) struts, to effectively increase the rigidity of the car and keep the tires planted more firmly in turns. Some companies make bars to tie the front struts to the mid/firewall cross-member, stiffening the front end even more. Some companies also make rear tower braces to provide the same effect for the rear tires. To go another level, there are also sub-frame connectors to stiffen the middle of the chassis with the rear even more. Several manufacturers offer variants of each type, catering to a wide range of requirements and desired effects.
I installed mine because I take part in autocross events locally. The front bar made a huge difference, but not really in daily drive-ability (as others stated).
