Status: Unspecified

A racetrack for motorised racing, eg cars, motorbikes and karts.

For cycling, running, horses, greyhounds etc, use leisure=track.

By default you should create a line along the raceway like you map other roads with highway=*. For small raceways like sport=karting when the exact course of the road is not known or often changes, you can also map the whole area as Area area and add area=yes.
