Just leave it in I.  Still not ideal, but its the best you'll be able to get by on.

In case anyone doesn't know if you use "L" it uses first and second gear, you just have to be on the gas hard and it shifts to second  at a high rpm. This selection is very usable for auto-x unless you have a very long straigh which most do not. I tried this at Cumberland Airport which was a fairly open course and I still never hit redline but was close.
"I" covers 1-4 with 4 coming at a higher rpm.
You'll have to try it and see, the gxp has a lower redline than the N/A. And yes I did this with the S/C so it was screaming fast arround the course.
Hope this helps.
