With Mobil 1 I changed my oil once per year. (6 race weekends and 3000 miles total). Now I use Valvoline and change it every 6 months. Had my engine apart 2 years ago for a cracked Mag case and it showed very little wear. I put it back together with the old rings and valve guides. Still running strong.

I had a track day 2 days ago and just changed my oil, did the filter too. Although the oil was <2k old, the car does drive better after oil change.

Cost? 11 qts of GTX 20/50 and a Mahle Filter. Around $20 +1hr.

$$ is one of the reasons why i stayed with Dino oil, i could change it as often as i want to. I will take clean dino over dirty synth any day.

Just came back from two very hard track days and will change the oil before the next DE in two more weeks. Brake fluid couldn't wait that long and I had to do it at the track.

Oil Changes

I change my mobil 1 after every 2 thru 4 day event at the track. 13 qts. of mobil-1 $60.00, a filter $11.00, four times a year = $71.00 x 4 oil changes= $284.00 total for the year. Average cost per day for a year is .78 cents. Hey thats no so bad.
The rough cost of a engine overhaul with no major destruction. Aprox. $10,000-$13,000 at least. $10,000.00 Average cost per day for a year would be 27.40 per day. Hey thats bad.
I do not think a engine would blow every year.
Do you feel lucky this year?
