Great idea. I was in grid close to the start and we figured it out, but it was a bit hectic at first.
Announcing the run groups early would let people come in and park in grid or paddock depending on their run group. Not having to move cars after the drivers meeting should speed up getting the first group going. Announcing the run groups at the drivers meeting tends to get people to show up at the drivers meeting so that would have to be addressed.
I think the event went off really well for being the first time with a new layout and a bunch of new folks running stuff.
