2000 996 engine temperature

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: Carrera 4; Year: 2000; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 90,000;

I have tracked my car at 2 events during the summer months in 90 degree weather. At one instance the temperature gauge was almost at its limit and the oil pressure dropped triggering the oil light. Since then I changed the oil to a heavier weight synthetic oil which has helped. However the temperature is still getting up there and oil pressure is still somewhat low. Is this something to be concerned about and if so what recommendations/changes can be made?
