Closing the gaps on clips with speed clip applied

When applying the Clip Speed effect to multiple clips at the same time, I would like to have the option that the clips will join together after the effect is applied.

For example, I have 100 x 1 minute clips of a road journey that I want to reduce to 5 minutes in total. I applied a 20x Speed clip settings and each clip was reduced as expected. However, the time difference in the gaps remained, which means I have to drag each of the 100 clips together manually. If the time is not enough and I needed to say make it 21x, it would apply again and each clip would have another gap, which again has to be manually applied to drag over.

I would like to see the option to either automatically close the gaps when it is applied, or if there are gaps, then maybe right click and have the option to "Close Gaps" or similar.

You could add them to the timeline with no gaps then produce to AVI or MP4
then re-open in new Project or even a new track while locking the original track.
Then apply Clip-Speed to combined clips.

I tried grouping them first but found I can not add Clip-Speed to a Group.
