Fuel starvation on track?

Is fuel starvation an issue on the Evora S's?

I went to my first HPDE event today... car was fantastic. However on my final run of the day with slightly less than 1/2 a tank of gas left about 10 minutes into the session, the engine note sounded audibly different (kind of buzzy instead of normal) when i came off the throttle after a series of turns. I did not have any warning indicator lights or anything like that. I immediately pitted and everything seemed to be fine. That was my last run of the day and I drove the 70 miles back home with no issue.

My only theory is that it was fuel starvation due to less than half a tank and significant lateral G-loading. Curious if either anybody else has experienced this (on the Evora specifically), or if it could be another more nefarious issue that I'm not thinking of.
