We had "instructors" last time, and it worked out well for those who were track virgins. Keep in ind that this is not a race, but a good opportunity to get out on track to see if you like it. If so, there are quite a few driving schools that can accelerate your learning curve and get you driving your car to its limits.
We allowed passing last year, but only on the front straight. We had corner workers and a spotter in the tower keeping an eye on everyone. We will be using similar guidelines this time as well.
