986 3.2S Race Car Brake Fade

My 3.2 S Boxster has been professionally prepared and generally we are just getting to understand it.
Today at Donnington we had a great race but we are experiencing severe brake fade.
The rotors are new Pagit and claiper the same, when cold they are fearsome, but over a 40 minute race the pedal gets longer and longer.
When it cools down the pedal become firm again.
We have the sport ducts trying to cool them, but I am becoming suspicious of the brake fluid, so what are people using?  is there a compatible replacemnet fluid with higher boiling point?
Any help greatly appreciated.
