To add in, at <http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/52.4527/5.5219> we 
have a nice collection of circuits, from northeast to southwest:
* The RDW (state office for road traffic) test track, marked mainly as 
highway=service but some raceway
* A cart track (marked as raceway) with associated dirt track (not 
marked other than with land use)
* The ANWB (driver's club, say AAA) driver's training track (not for a 
driver's permit but for anti-slip training etc), most marked as raceway
* A seemingly commercial (or non-profit) race track, marked on their 
site as "for events, tv-productions and races", all actual track marked 
as raceway, but the small connecting bits as service, with a dirt track 
only marked by landuse
