<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/aBobSY8MVis" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/aBobSY8MVis</a>

I make a tutorial how to make the centerline for a GPBikes track.
All images are resized for goo watching here, if you want to watch better clic on the link under every images,

The limit of centerline parts is 285
How i do a centerline:

1:
Open tracked.exe
File;Load; find your track in .trp

9:
Move this part with the down square until the start of the straight line of your track, it must be placed at the end of a curve because the last part must be a curve and the first a straight.
Strengh the part the more you can until the next curve(or straight) with the other with square.

10:
Right clic on the part, and clic Add curve, if it's a curve, or Add straight if it's a straight(lol).

11:
Clic on the new part and place it the nearest you can of the middle of the track, strengh it as possible.

12:
Take a tour of your circuit with minimum sections (parts), you will see after if there is too many or not,(the limit is 285).
As i have undstood, this centerline is used to locate pits, start grid, marshalls and respawn point after a fall.

13:
At the last section wich, i recall, must be a curve, the best approach of the end of the first section.
Zoom out to see surroundings of the track, right clic out of the ground(in the grey) and clic Close.
Your Centerline must have closed between the first and last section.

15:
