I've been messin' with the driver.ini. If you copy the values for Jim Clark to all drivers then you'll get offcourse a field off drivers which all behave like clark.
I've made some screenshots off the results below.

The practice for novice and intermediate differ about a second overall.  :blink:
The race for novice has an increasing lag of about a second per driver.
I tried this once and they seem to stick together more.

If you want to try it backup the driver.ini first and drop in the one i attached.

You can even try to get the same chassis also for an even more close racing. Use the markenpokal program or mine (at my website) to create all loti, coopers etc.. :)

Strangely enough there's a bigger difference between the 1st and last driver in the results with all loti (20secs as to 10secs with different chassis) Curious... :?:

Have a look at your A1 Tweaker topic, I've added the file you were after and one of my own. With GPL Tweaker you can set the speed of all the cars the same. So you can have fun trying to dodge the traffic jam.  ;)

I used to like the one-make events, and it would be great to try with later mods. I wonder if there's a possibility to use GPLCarswitcher or Markenpokal with more than 7 cars.
