I ususally play the 2x's rule, i warn you twice to slow down and maintain the 5mph limit while in grid/paddock, if they do it a third time, kicked off the site. We only had to do this once last year as a guy spun into the grass back to back runs. the fact we stick to our guns though means EVERYONE plays by the rules, and personally I want a 60 car event, more runs lol, we get 4 per day, i run with another region that usually gets about 60 and we get 8 runs.
We emphasize these things to at our driver meetings. I swear sometimes though it seems like a ball peen hammer is the most effective reenforcement tool. Another thing we do is enforce "walking speeds" in the paddock area.

I like a smaller field as well. We always get a minimum of 8 runs. 4 in the morning, 4 in the afternoon.
