Check engine light on the track, Vanos timing problem???

Just came home from the track where I was driving pretty good till the car threw a check engine light, something which is becoming a common occurrence with this car

When I came home I scanned the car and found 2 codes, the generic OBD code P000A, and BMW code 271A. It seems to have something to do with intake vanos timing on bank 1. What can be the cause of this? Bad camshaft position sensor? Possible oil starvation on the track? No, my oil level never went down below the minimim but the temps were quite high at over 130 Celsius. I cleared the codes and obviously I don't have a clue if the problem will happen again or not. And no, there are no unusual sights, sounds, or odors from the car.
