Delay Rebuild?

Maybe one of you guys can come up with an answer.

Car: 1979 930, 50k miles, 1986 exhaust, k-27, dual B+B muf.

Problem: black smoke

Symptoms: only at the track after a few laps, some black smoke from the left outlet only under full throttle. Back of the car has oil residue, by the end of the D.E. weekend white license plate turns grey. A few minor leaks on the ground after shutdown. Add about 3 qts for D.E. weekend No leaks when not driven in anger. Oil consumption well within limits street driving. I keep the oil level below 1/2. Sometimes I don't get full boost, .5 or .6. Full is .8

Question: Can I delay a rebuild? Can I drive this car at the track next year? What is wrong?

Thanks
