Could be a number of things,
Sway bars
Tires, Foam
Rut in track.
turning to hard.

Rebuild shocks and make sure the set up is good. Try some different tires and slow down a bit in the turn. IMO

Try a thinner sway bar in the rear.

too much body roll can be caused by several different things. Improper suspension setup, sway bar too stiff, binding A arm, incorrect droop, or just driving too hard into a corner and traction rolling.

Put a stiffer front sway bar in it. Or a softer rear.

Since you have enough traction to pull the inside wheel in the rear, Id go with a stiffer front bar, the car should also turn in a bit better with that.
