I think most folks are using a 4.1:1 at Spa with for the front runners a 8500 rpm limit. I'm not sure that this is very sustainable for all budgets as Spa has several full power locations!
Anyone who does such a nice resto is unlikely to be missing mechanical empathy ! The gearbox will be rather stressed in 1st and that I suspect that experts like Rohan would suggest limiting revs to 3500 rpm in 1st.
Other cars also have to take the "new bus stop" in 1st.
