Yes it should and in the past has not been a race track with only the dedicated turn 9/10 section that diverges from the road. Now the that has been removed as part of the work being done to the track there shouldn't need to be any racetrack ways.

Subject: [talk-au] Albert Park Grand Prix Track


The Albert Park Grand Prix track is currently drawn as a separate ‘raceway’, broken up into sectors, using some nodes of Lakeside Drive and Aughtie Drive.

It’s pretty cool t see the route, but I’m not sure it’s correct to have it drawn in that way. The race track only exists for one month a year (COVID and construction notwithstanding), and the wiki seems to support the notion that temporary features shouldn’t be included. Leaving the raceway there 24/7 might give non-locals the impression the track is in service all year.

I can’t find a similar equivalent in Australia to compare it to (not a big petrol-head) but Monaco, for example, doesn’t have a raceway drawn across its roads, just a relation. (Well, mostly. It looks like there are frequent changes, but the raceway only exists in the ways that aren’t normal roads.)
