Clicking noise when turning

recently I finished a track event. During my cool down lap when I would be making a right hand turn ( steering wheel cocked to about 90 degrees at around 45-50mph) I would here a clicking noise. It would only occur when I would be doing my cool down lap. I tried to recreate it driving the next day and nothing. I was wondering if anyone had this issue before. And or know what could be causing this issue

Thanks

Not sure on this one specifically, but I get all kinds of clicks, pops, squeals, etc...after a hot session. As long as they go away when the car has cooled down and I don't feel anything weird on trackI don't sweat it.

Sounds like the rear differential. It's normal. Probably just hearing it after tracking because the fluid is hotter than normal.
