Oil Draining

I appear to have a bit of a problem with a A series engine with the oil
getting pumped up into the rocker cover and then not draining back into the
sump. The top face of the cylinder head is wet with oil even though the
rocker cover (a fairly stiff alloy one) is tightly screwed down. There are
spots of oil around the inlet manifold, carb and heater piping as though
it's squirting out under pressure. OK it's a race engine and so is
subjected to high revs and higher than usual levels of cornering and
braking forces but that shouldn't make a difference to the draining of oil.

I am aware that this is not an uncommon problem in V8 engines but has
anyone else had it occur in an A or B series?
