Default Laptimes vs track length

I was wondering those that know there track length what you average laptimes are. I am just trying to get a feel for how difficult a track is compared to the size.

Our local track is still growing and not a lot of jumps as of yet. Still need some rythm sections, and a few more technical things.

I am wondering how much it is going to slow down the pace of the laps.

I think we are right around 22-25 sec. laps with 450 ft. length.

We have a long straight away and a sweeping turn that is pretty WOT.

Can a track be too slow because of the technical sections?

my local track is supercross style (very technical) it rolls out at about 465ft. center-line. Fast laps are between 36-38.

Nitro Pit is 2500 SQ FT..yes that's not a typo. The track is 125 X 200 feet..The pro's get around it in high 30's low 40's...My class is double that

Right now the layout is pretty free flowing with very few tight technical sections..It usually has a really good combination of both..Once they change it times will vary, but low 40 second lap times have been normal for the pros on the last 4 layouts
