You can run your car at redline for 2 hours and immediately shut it off. As far as the turbo is concerned, it will be fine. That being said, it is a good idea to run your car nicely for a few minutes so ALL the fluids in your car can return to their normal operating temperatures prior to shut down. Obviously this advice only applies if you really tear up your car via autocrossing or HARD driving out in the country. Some people confuse a "power run" or two for hard driving. Getting on the gas pedal once in awhile, or taking a corner or two hard is not hard driving.
