[Es2] Catch tank vs. breather system?

At Sears Point a couple weeks ago, I put 1.5 quarts
into the motor to keep it full.... usually consumes
zero on the street.
I think the g-forces of track driving force oil out
into the breather system, helped along with the
suction of extended high-RPM operation.
All the 5-cyl. turbo cars there were puffing blue
smoke trotting back through the pits.
Doing something about this is definitely on my list,
though after a couple higher priority projects-
rebuild rear brakes, install a proportioning valve,
and troubleshoot an overboost cutout problem (seems to
be an ECU issue, went away when I borrowed one from
the Bennetts).
