Richard. I received your email and I will be in touch.

BTW...on my way home last night the oil light on the car indicated I was a quart down in oil. Is that normal for a track day?

for your car it is...

it's very possible that you were low before the event and this just came up because it got low enough to trigger the light.. .... or.. it could be that your car does consume some oil .... Basically.. you would have to do another event and find out. if the car does consume some oil while on the track... that's not really unexpected.. if you were losing a LOT of oil... then maybe cause for concern... but even if you lost a full quart over a weekend... it wouldn't be worth getting alarmed over.
