Don't we already have a semi-dry sump?
many, for starters:
1. better for road racing as the oil won't experience problems w/ g forces turning, etc.
2. Mount the oil in a central locaiton up top= more oil capacity= cooler oil naturally
3. As prior poster said, no need for a big pan = can mount engine lower if needed
4. No windage problems in pan as no oil sitting in crankcase
