That depends... Once a layout is chosen and used for a few weeks consecutively, you'll find that grip levels typically go up. New layouts are often low bite at the beginning of the day, then gain grip during the event. Layouts that are 3-4 weeks old often start at "mid-level" grip, and progress to high grip shortly thereafter. Grip levels over the course of a race are also dependent on the total number of entries; more entries=more grip.
Assume low grip for a brand new track surface; once cars start "traction rolling" in corners, the track condition would generally be considered "mid-grip". High grip is achieved with a large number of entries and a lot of track time logged by the participants, making a true "high grip" situation a fairly rare occurrence.
