Sure, but what about mapping the way *as an area*, e.g. if you want to
accurately trace over wide vs. narrow parts of the track? I remember
this came up a little while ago in the context of "should all highways
be mapped as areas", but I'm not sure if there were any tagging
guidelines produced as an outcome of that... it is just a matter of
adding area=yes?

But the added complication with a race track is that it is usually a
circuit, and thus needs a "hole" in the middle (hence why I'm thinking
it would need a multipolygon relation...)
