I have a closed path that is taken from here (Wikipedia). It's the race track of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race (also known as " Circuit de la Sarthe").
I am new to Inkscape and co.
The Basic Problem
I want to indicate the "progress of the race" on a percentage basis by coloring a specific fraction of the path like in the following illustrations (the text is there to make it clear, I don't want the text in the final image).
Why do I want this?
The background is, that I want to use this as a kind of progress bar in a PowerPoint presentation (instead of the common"slide 4/23").
What would be the ideal outcome?
Ideally, there is a batch function that exports 0 to 100 percent in a 1 percent step, like 0.pdf | 1.pdf | 2.pdf | ... | 99.pdf | 100.pdf (pdf or PNG).

I am more active on the LaTeX version of stackexchange - inspired by the solution here I figured out an alternative approach (using a custom dashed pattern):
