Typically the spirited runs are organized by driver comfort/ability. Regardless, the runs are all held on public roads, so don't expect them to be a breakneck pace.

Tires make all the difference. If you want to be in the lead pack on any of the spirited runs you better have 200 TW.

If you're not sure if you'll be able to keep up, just line up towards the back of the pack. There'll probably be a couple of groups on the Fat Buddies Run, so ask around at the line up to see where you'll fit in best. You'll find everyone respectful of your abilities & desires to fast or not-so -fast. Better to err on the slow side, than to get into a faster group that you're not comfortable with. One aspect of Miatas at the Gap that always impresses me, is that nobody is pressed to drive past where they want to go.
