Where are the pitboxes on shorter tracks?

    How come tracks such as Nurburgring Mullenbach and shorter versions of Cadwell etc don't have a pitlane? This renders these tracks useless for online racing.

    Well, the M├╝llenbachschleife for example obviously doesn't have a pitlane in real life so it would be strange to create a fake one.

    Some of the club circuits are not designed for races.

    In real life they park the cars at Mullenbach behind the barrier right after the sharp right turn.

    Even track day nutters park their car somewhere. If there isn't a professional pitlane at least include some tents and an area where you can serve a penalty, change tyres or repair damage.

    Makes no sense at all that you can't race this awesome track online now.

    They use the M├╝llenbachschleife and Cadwell Club for club racing, just they don't use any pits. It would be nice to have a utility for pits so you can actually race properly online - even if it means putting in a 'fake' pits with some marquees or tents or something.
