Sounds to me as though the bearings , probably mains and rods are starting
to wear out - might be a good time to replace before damage occurs - If you
were to put an oil gauge on it you would find almost no oil pressure at
idle (which is why the light is coming on, and lower than normal pressure
at speed - 
Do you notice any slight rod bearing knocking when under load?

My sports six, which has a gt6 engine. Recently the oil light has started
coming on more frequently as it idles. The idle speed has not changed, it
is full of fresh oil, Castrol 20-50. everything seems ok, just strange that
the light has begun lighting all of a sudden.
any ideas asto why?
