some karts do run on full sized auto racing circuits, but kart
specific tracks are generally much smaller in scale.

lots of motorcycle racing on pavement uses the same circuits
as cars. but again, sometimes motorcycles run on narrower
circuits that are unsuitable for auto racing.

i don't have a proposal here, just conveying information.
