I hadn't done any track days with this car until recently but now that I have I am noticing a clicking sound that seems to come from the wheels on the side that is loaded during cornering - not sure if it's front or back. The noise doesn't occur immediately but builds up slowly and gets louder as components get warmer. This only occurs under 10/10 driving. If I stay out a little too long it will start to turn into a squeal. Everything is fine once cool and there are no sounds while street driving
  • Car has 37,000 km / 23,000 miles on it
  • I do a max of 5 laps at a time until I change pads as my OEM pads will start to smoke
  • I have 17x9 wheels and this happened with my old RE-71s and my new RS4s
  • I have a 3mm spacers in front and centering rings all around
Is this likely to be a wheel bearing problem?

Maybe a CV joint going bad (worn/damaged)?

how much clearance do you have between the spokes and your calipers? sounds more like your wheel is bending(normal under load) and hitting the caliper to me.

Seeing this thread just sent shivers down my spine. OP (Brad) had a medical emergency behind the wheel a few months back, and passed away even before he crashed into another car and came to a stop.

He was a good friend, and fellow AutoX'er here in Toronto. I was remembering him today :(
