Strangely enough, not an issue at the Glen, but this was a consistent issue at NHIS last year, which is a much slower, but tighter and technical track. I don't have a good handle on what contributes to the overheating of the PS fluid. I don't know where the energy input into the system is exactly. Does it have to do with the steering input and how hard the pump works? And maybe on a faster track, there is more airflow into the engine bay and hence more cooling for that system?
