Boost Gauge

I recently started tracking my 02 TT 996. I've owned this car since 08/04. I've only been in the track on 3 events. 1st one of 02/05, 2nd on 03/05 and my most recent one of 04/05. Ever since I've owned this car including the first two track events, my boost never went over .4. I have not done anything different to the car (engine performance wise). My question is during my most recent track event (04/05), I notice the my boost bar went all the way up to .8 - .9. The car pretty much felt the same (power output wise). My question is if this is normal? I immediately took the car to the dealer for preventive measure and for them to diagnose it but they tell me that everything is fine. Is this normal? Could you offer some kind of explanation as to why is the car doing this. I could now consistently see the boost go over .4. Could I not knowingly damage anything in the car related to this? Please advice! Thank you in advance for your kind consideration, attention and prompt resposne regarding this matter.
