What is this noise at high RPM?

This only happens during Autocross accelerating at high RPM. I cannot make it happen on the street. It gets progressively worse during the run. So heat related?

After 0:39 in the video to the finish listen whenever I accelerate at high RPM. Also listen to it when I stop for my time slip and drive into pre-grid.

Sounds like a vibration of metal on metal. My guess is your exhaust has shifted and its the mid-pipe vibrating against the body underneath the car. Check the hangars, too, they have been known to vibrate off the straight exhaust pegs (no mushroom retainer).
