It's a pretty simple track which achieves a good flow and racing speed. My only complaints would be the lack of cam3 changes in the loopings (learn about the mediatracker...) and the jump after the narrowing runs short on landing space.

Crusard's CAM3 tutorial for newbies:

1) Go into mediatracker > Ingame (d'oh)

2) If this is the first time that you enter the ingame mediatracker (for this track), a clip will have been already created and you can see the following:
Image
Notice the cube icon is highlighed. This is used to place the location where the trigger (a camera switch in this case) will fire.

3) Draw the area a one blocks before the looping like this:
Image

4) Now we have to assign an effect for this trigger. Click the "add track" button to add one.
Image

5) From the list you can choose any effect you like. In this case: Camera > Camera Race (Race cameras are the normal cameras that the player sees in the game)

6) Once the Camera "track" has been inserted and selected, the config screen should look like the following:
Image

Block Start defines, counting from the moment the car enters the trigger area, the moment the trigger is fired.
Block End defines the total duration of the effect
Camera defines which type of camera you'd like to switch to. In this case, Internal.
Target doesn't need to be changed for this type of trigger. In other camera types, such as custom or orbital, you can make it follow the player or look at another direction.


Well, that's pretty much a basic camera change for a looping. To learn all other effects and do improved switch cams (using 2 triggers instead of one to ensure good timing) you should experiment by yourself.

New track added: Simplifier


and also a question
I looked in the manual and on the net but I couldn't find it.
When Making a rounds map, you always get a round limit. But in servers the round limit is unlimited.
How do you set the limit to unlimited?

With "Rounds map" don't you mean "Multilap track"?
If not, then you probably mean the rounds for multiplayer, which I thought were depending on how much time for each challenge there is...

When in multiplayer, laps are always one, but you can make your next time without having to stop.
In Solo mode you have to specify how many laps you want for the race, and it is not possible to continue racing once you comlpete all laps.
