How to map
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. This is controversial - see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Tag:highway%3Draceway#Mapping_as_an_area
|Marks the start and end of the track. In cases where this is the same node then a value of start-finish.|
