What model engine do you have...under hard cornering situations, certain models are more prone to having the oil light come on than others...I can be a quart low on my 3.2L 300E without having the light come on when hard cornering, but others may do so.

My old Bug would do the same thing. When I modified the engine, I installed a deep sump (2.5 added oil capacity), and a crankcase windage tray, which prevented oil starvation at high cornering speeds...problem went away.

In your case, just keep the oil level at the full level...
