High Temps with Alekshop Oil Cooler

This weekend, my wife and I were sharing the M3 at a DE. Weather was 87F with about 75% humidity. Our sessions were not back to back, but the car had to do 8 sessions in the day. On one of her sessions, the high temp light came on with the little thermometer picture and the light that looks like bacon cooking. I pulled the AIM data before going back out. Oil showed 262F max and coolant at 224F max. The needle on the dash was much closer to the 300F mark though. It quickly dropped on a cool down lap.

What oil/water temps are required to get the high temp alarms? Long term, I only need to car to support one driver, but if she wants to run it in BM with BMWCCA, I don't know if it will make it thru a 60 minute enduro.
