Parts of raceway

Surface tag should be easy enough to add, as well as something for surface quality (smoothness?). But how to tag different parts of a raceway, for example pitlane, mechanical area (pits and garages), access to and from pitlane, fixed timing devices, spectator areas, start grid, alternative lanes, sand and safety pits, safety barriers, speed traps, etc. Skippern (talk) 14:51, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Tagging for the Renderer

“Actually (May 2016) a bug[1] 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” → Isn't this suggestion tagging for the renderer? I suggest to remove this passage since this is clearly a renderer bug and not an issue with the data. --Wuzzy (talk) 13:32, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Tagging_for_the_renderer:Don't deliberately enter data incorrectly for the renderer - area=no is not incorrect but redundant. If it helps our main data customer there is not much harm suggesting it. With database reload and hstore this will be fixed somewhere in the near future.--Jojo4u (talk) 16:42, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
