I don't know how purist people in this league are, but I have a track.ini for this track which places the pits around Pflanzgarten so that there is no need to do a 9 minute warmup before a timed lap start.

I personally think that it's more realistic than the original track in GPL since in real life the drivers could make a shortcut right at Nordkehre to start a lap.

I think that the oAo server should have this modification for this track.

No, the server does not. It might be a case of renaming it to track67.ini or copying the [ pit_lane_0 ] section. I generally rename all mod specific track.ini files so they aren't used, since the OnlineGridTool utility only adjusts the track.ini file specifically.

I was watching a YouTube vid - some super car chasing another - and they stopped at an ice cream shop just off Ex-Muhle.

I had also a track67.ini, which I had to rename in order to make this work. Works ok now. Tnx Bob

Just a quick question...

What (If any) are the rules related to an "in Lap". Do you have to complete a full lap before pitting or can you pull over and then go out again. If so any limit on how far you can go into your next lap?

Thanks in advance

I just explained this to my team mates in private forum. I will copy and paste below:
===================================================================

When you join the server, you will notice that there are effectively TWO pit lanes. When you enter the cockpit in qualifying, your car will be placed on the grass to the right of the track just after the Pflantzgarten turn. Let's call this pit lane the "false pits." Starting from this false pits, you get several turns to warm up your tires before beginning a hot lap.

When you finish your hot lap(s), you must cross the S/F line, then dive into the "real pits"and stop before exiting the cockpit. Do not proceed to Südkehre or Nordkehre and then exit, or your session will be finished. There is plenty of space to stop in the real pits after crossing the S/F line, and since it's the Nürburgring, you will probably be all alone when you do it, so you are highly unlikely to put yourself or anyone else in danger. If you subsequently choose to re-enter the cockpit to turn more qualifying laps, you may do so, again starting from the false pits after Pflantzgarten.

In the D2 race, Shift-Rs must be performed in the usual way from the real pits.

Therefore, the false pits is used only as a starting point for a qualifying run, not for any other purpose. Be careful when entering the track from the false pits. Check your mirrors to confirm that no one is approaching on a hot lap. And if you are the person hot-lapping, be careful after Pflantzgarten to avoid cars exiting the false pits or warming tires after the false pits.

This is the only unusual feature to racing at Nürburgring. Everything else is done in the usual way.

As usual, Michael is spot on and ahead of the curve for explanations :)
thanks!
i found out that the pit board "IS" in the normal pit box area, NOT the 'false pits'... so even if D1 drivers use the pitstop patch, they will have a pitboard to stop at, to re-fuel, in the 'real pits'
