You can get a custom ground cam for what you would pay for an off-the-shelf "big name" cam.....maybe LESS money. You tell'em what you want and they throw out a few suggestions and then grind it up.

You could probably find out something from someone who runs one of these in a circle track application. Another option would be to talk to Steve Demos(Demos' Cams). He has some profiles that were developed for a Ferrari race team and that are designed to work with a direct acting flat tappet(bucket) setup. You would be reducing the base circle slightly but there might be enough travel in the lifter to make up the difference.
