My MR-2 is my second car, I plan to do 2-3 track days this year and use it a few times a week on the road.

I know it probably doesn't matter as it's just a Corolla engine, but I'm struggling to choose the oil. I have the following on my list:

Castrol Magnatec Stop-Start A5 Engine Oil - 5W-30
SPECIFICATIONS / INDUSTRY STANDARDS ACEA A1/B1, A5/B5 API SN ILSAC GF-4 Meets - Ford WSS-M2C913-C / WSS-M2C913-D

Shell Helix Ultra Professional AF 5W-30
Specifications: API SL, ACEA A5/B5, Ford WSS-M2C913-C & WSS-M2C913-D, Jaguar Land Rover STJLR.03.5003 (meets the reuqiements of)

Petronas Syntium 5000 AV Engine Oil - 5W-30
Specification SAE 5W-30 ACEA A3/B3/B4 ACEA C3 Performance API SN VW 504.00-507.0

Petronas Syntium 3000 FR Engine Oil - 5W-30
Specification SAE 5W-30 API SL/CF ACEA A5/B5 FORD WSS-M2C913-D RENAULT RN0700


Or should I seek out a 5W-40 ACEA A3/B4 (already using Shell of this spec in my other cars so could be convenient)? Is this better considering the abuse the engine will take on track?
I don't plan to have a dedicated track oil so whatever is in there will stay in there for 6 - 12 months.

Thanks in advance

Edit: for UK climate

Have you considered one of Motuls' offerings? I'm using their 8 100 xcess 5w-40 in my sti for the same use with good results.

Any idea what your oil temps are on the track?

I track a Ford Focus Mk1 so I understand the concern for the oil.

15W-40 for racing.

A good synthetic 10W-30 will do, too. Amsoil ACD 10W-30/SAE 30 is a monograde.

You can probably get the following easily in UK. It's GTL-based (PurePlus technology) with minimal VII content (a good synthetic 10W-30).

It has a Ferrari logo.

If it can run the Shell 5W40 I would definitely use that
