I received a taxi clearance to runway 25, which is very unusual at sbp. The normal runway is 11 or 29, and I have never before taxied to runway 25. I had the location of the runup area for 25 incorrectly visualized in my mind and as I taxied toward 25, I taxied past the hold line and the undershoot/overrun area for runway 7-25. The tower called me on this and I immediately cleared the area. As the runway is now marked, it is possible to taxi onto runway 25, on the yellow centerline and not encounter the hold line. The gap is a full taxiway in width and needs to be marked. See attached diagrams for clarification.
