Bubbling oil..156 ts

After having an enthusiastic cane around the Wicklow Mountains the other night(like living at the Nurenburg ring,lucky me!)I parked it up and opened the bonnet,wanted to see if my aux belt tensioner etc was behaving ok,I've a few little jobs to attend to before my NCT(MOT to most of you).There was steam coming from the dipstick hole and the engine oil seemed to be bubbling(or boiling?) in the engine.All new belts,water pump etc.Thermostat fine,fans cutting in when they should.Never had this happen in any other car,and I've had quite a few.Is this normal after thrashing a ts?Has it ever happened to any of you on trackdays?It's going into the garage for a few minor things next week,just wondering is there anything I should add to my list.I'm using 10/40 Magnatec by the way.
