It's a normal thing that happens in racing since they go through a lot of hard braking. Even when it comes to racing production vehicles at some local road course track you can spot cars that have rotors that turn red, not always, maybe with those time attack guys running laps non stop.

Right before the 30 second mark you can see this Lamborghini's brakes getting red hot... in the daytime it's blatantly obvious lol

You could cook a lot of steaks on those rotors. Probably medium rare at best.

I don't go on track so this is all new to me. I can just imagine those brakes getting warped due to the heat and needing regular replacement.

Medium rare is ok but well done are for heathens, rare all the way!

Yupp, warped, and super squeaky.

Need some liquid and air cooled brakes

Brakes that are made for this type of intense usage with the right ventilation goes a long way in preventing or just prolonging the chances of warping.

They do... but typically after a track day like that, they're roasted

Did a bit of research into pads and people have said that Castrol SRF is very good since it boils a few hundred degrees higher in real life and Sintered metal pads can take a lot of heat. Cooling ducts are mandatory for track brakes.

Makes me think about what Acura is using for the full carbon NSX.

With all the openings in the front end, I'm sure there are sections there for brake duct inlets. It would only make sense.
