Its oil blow by that is getting blown / sucked into the intake manfold. This is the reason top install a oil catch can. Stops the oil from getting back into your intake.

It is fairly normal for turbo cars that are driven hard or on the track.

yeah, if you have lots of oil, it probably is indicative of a problem. If you pull the turbo outlet hose, a quick look should tell you if your turbo is ok or not. After that go for a compression check.

How much boost are you running and what type of gas?
