Stock P-Zero tire at 57 psi??

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6L Turbo X50; Total Mileage: 6000;

I just finished a DE at the Pocono with my 2002 996 Turbo. My stock P-Zero tires were set to 2 psi above factor cold (i.e. 38 front 46 rear). That was 2 psi lower than what is suggested by the NNJR club website. After a few laps, I measured the rear tires and found that they were at 57 psi. I got worried since the tire sidewall says max psi is 51.What should I do in the future? Should I stick with the Porsche recommended 36/44? It will still exceed the 51 psi max limit. Is it safe to do so?Thanks.
