Just after some advice on what oil to use
My car is only used on weekends and track days, choosing which oil to use looks like a minefield

Mines pretty much only used on track (aside from too and from) and I use

Millers Oils NANODRIVE CFS 5w-40 NT+ Full Synthetic Engine Oil
or
Petronas Syntium 3000 AV 5w-40 Full Synthetic Engine Oil

You can use any 5w-40 or you could go up to a 60 but bear in mind it'll be a lot thicker and take a lot longer to thin out etc (which is why I have not bothered)

I have actually purchased some mobil 1 motorsport formula 10/60 not too sure whether to go 5/40 now
Mine is not used on the road much now apart from too and from tracks and I am still using 5/40 and I do all day stings with 20-30 min sessions (one 40 min one last year) and no issues ever mate

I've tried a few oils. Mainly castrol and shell. Burns abit of oil.
Since switching to Fuchs race pro S 5W40. My engine seemed alot happier and hasn't burnt any oil since. Says on bottle its designed for engines with high lift cams, so in my opinion sounds best suited. Oil is oil end of the day but I like using the race pro S.
