On F1 tracks the finish line is usually in a different place to the start line - presumably these want tagging too?

we probably need start, finish and start_finish. we also may need to consider the case where different start and finish locations are used for different races, club vs pro, etc. Nfgusedautoparts (talk) 19:22, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

other potential roles

we might want a role for the timing line, which on modern circuits is the spot where the transponder loop is buried in the pavement

id tag

we may want an id tag to allow queries for specific relations; the application might be variants on a circuit (e.g., Watkins Glen long course vs short course, with and without the inner loop chicane), or to distinguish historical variants no longer used (e.g. Watkins Glen first circuit, second circuit, and third circuit.)

end and start dates

we should list these as optional tags.


Would the proposal include using this for e.g. horse-racing tracks?

i would doubt it. horse tracks have their own tagging distinct from motor racing.
