How to map
By default you should create a line along the raceway like you map other roads with highway=*.
For small raceways like for sport=karting or sport=motocross where the exact course of the road is not well-defined or often changes, you can map the whole site as an area and add the tag area=yes. If the course of the road is well-defined and does not change, but you want to detail the shape of the raceway, you may use the proposed tag area:highway=raceway, mapping the shape of the road as an area in addition to the course of the road as a line.
Actually (Feb 2017) a bug in OSM Mapnik stylesheet prevents rendering of closed loop ways when highway=raceway is present along with sport=* so it is adviced to always add area=no when mapping as a simple line
