I can't see how an oil pan baffle alone really helps all that much in race conditions. However, it does look like BMW gave the M2 a baffled oil pan:

BMW also gave the M2 a semi-dry sump system which pumps oil from the front of the oil pan (#2) back to the rear of the pan where the oil pickup is (#6):

If only it wasn't so expensive to retrofit the M2 oil system...

The accusump at least guarantees you never see <40psi oil pressure. You rarely see oil pressure loss at max load where you need the 80psi. You usually see it mid-corner or under heavy braking which are both scenarios where you will either be completely off the throttle or only partial throttle. Oil accumulators work. I spoke with Accusump engineer directly recently and he walked me through a ton of different uses.
