removing thermostat on e30 320i

My son races a 320i in a series here in the UK. The engines are stock spec. A number of the competitors run their cars without thermostats presumably for cooler running. Do any members here have any opinion on the advantage/disavantage of this practice?

Running without it in street use is really bad. The oil will be too cool and fuel economy will plunge.

The car is only used on the race track not normal road use.
