I've never been, how are the cars spaced on the track? Is there a gap between cars? No passing?

Cars are spaced by the starter with enough room to not come close to the car ahead. More space is given for those who request it, generally first timers. In the event someone does catch up to the driver ahead, no passing is allowed. Red flags are given with time to safely stop drivers. A re-run is provided to the driver held up. But to date I do not recall anyone catching up. The starter errors on the side of caution to keep enough space. As the event progresses spacing is adjusted for cars given to much space to keep the event running efficiently.

This will be my first event with Grip Syndicate - looking forward to trying a new track (new to me). What kind of lap times are guys getting from the event in years past? Looks like some pretty good cars coming out and some familiar faces too. Hope we've got great weather!
