Do you think it would be better with 2nd gear there? In some corners car stops nearly to 0mph and IMO car would bog in 2nd gear.
BTW using tires instead of cones is awful

For once I am at a complete loss...

The video you posted is certainly like nothing I expected.

That said, 1st gear is your best option because of the lack of distance.

What sort of event do they call this?

It really isn't an autocross and it really isn't a slalom given that you are on the course for about 20 seconds...
