But also the most common motor racing facilities, for motocross,
karting, usually don't have stands and other things for spectators.
These are places where normal people go and practice the sport.

Who cares if it's a real sport is not  :) . When I use the word "sport"
I mean what we tag as sport=*
To be clear, I'm not particulary interested in motor sports, expecially
those that attract many people. I'm here to propose a tag which I think
is needed.
