Could be a hole in the exhaust or the induction side of things ??

Have you checked the basics ? Oil & Water etc ?? Thats always a good starting point (Especially for the female driver) smack

If it happens when going round a corner, it could be an oil surge? The oil in the sump 'gushes' to one side as you corner and gets sucked up through the breather? I dunno, it might be. A properly welded in baffle plate cures this.
Or is it all the time? Check the manifold and the pipes around the cat.

It's easy to blame something for driving too fast though, it could be a total coincidence and something's just worn out through wear and tear.
