Annoying really cause i really want to do a lot of trackdays this year and I have just recieved info through post today on the Gurston Hill climb which i wanted to enter just to rub salt into wounds!!
I did maybe 25 track days with my old R33GTR, and anyone who knows me will perhaps say I don't hang about, having raced competively from the age of 12, and run in up to National F3 without making a fool of myself. Now, I only say this to offer you some hope with your own track day plans. My GTR was on Ohlins suspension, proper road legal race rubber (Michelin Pilot Sport Cups and P-Zero Corsas), had a bit more than stock power, and did 80% of the UK race circuits. The ONLY oil mods were a 32 row oil cooler, and an oil level about 10 mm over the full mark on the dipstick, checked and maintained RELIGIOUSLY at all times. I ran Valvoline Syn-Power oil. I had zero surge, or any other oil problems. The ONLY place I'd not run was Mallory Park, due to the renowned knack for Gerrards corner to cause oil surge in engines that never suffered it elsewhere. So I'd say don't worry about it, approach it sensibly and you should be fine.
A few mods, when the engine HAS to come out would be great, but in my own experience, they are not essential, the GTS-t I run on track at the moment has a totally stock tin sump on it, again, a bit of extra oil and it's fine, albeit I have done some serious breather mods to the PCV system.
