Default Wet skid pat event at One Lap

I'm doing the Tire Rack One Lap of America. The first event is at Tire Rack on their wet skid pad. I'm doing this event in my 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S.
What mode setting do you think I should set for this event?
My first though was "Sport Plus", but this event is slow mph just trying not to spin out. Maybe "normal" or "sport " would be best.
What do you think?
Here is link to a video of the event, the fastest cars only are going around 32MPH.

Nice. I've done it 3 times (a long time ago now). I'd use Sport mode and possibly reduced traction control so the car can spin a bit. But then, I haven't gone out and practiced with the TTS in the wet, so if you can do that, give it a go.

Yeah, I would stay with Sport also. Who are the drivers for the BMW team this year? A couple of those guys are world-class drifters that literally do this every day at the BMW driving school and can probably offer you tips and suggestions.

Update: I watched the video and heard the BMW driver was Mike "Schnell" Renner, who is a senior instructor at the BMW school and all-around nice guy. Check out his thoughts on this.
