We organise tracks on RacingCircuits.info according to their current status, in one of four categories:
- Active: for circuits that are currently in operation.
- Historic: for circuits that have ceased operating.
- Proposed: for circuits which have been announced but not yet developed or are in development but not yet completed.
- Undeveloped: for circuits which were proposed but never constructed.
We classify the circuits listed into three types:
- Permanent circuits: these are dedicated facilities for motorsport, often specifically built for the purpose (though sometimes they may evolved over time from temporary facilities)
- Temporary circuits: these are facilities which are established for the duration of a specific event and then dismantled.
- Semi-permanent circuits: These may be permanent facilities that incorporate sections of public road (such as Le Mans) or circuits which are comprised of public road or parkland roads but with permanent facilities such as pits, paddock area and grandstands (such as Mount Panorama).
Racing circuits come in a variety of different formats, from the classic closed road courses with only basic facilities which the sport began on, right through to purpose-built, multi-million pound entertainment complexes.
Oval courses are most popular in the United States, where stock car racing is the most popular form of the sport, while road courses tend to be the staple form of circuit elsewhere in the world.
Some circuits may combine several different types of layout or have altered their category over time.
Circuits are categorised on RacingCircuits.info by their current or most recent configurations. As an example, Spa-Francorchamps began as a closed road course but is now a permanent road course which is separated from the local road network.
We list circuits by their current FIA and FIM gradings. In the case of FIA gradings, these are published each year in December and the most recent listing is used.
The FIM does not publish a full listing of its circuit gradings, so we have based our listing on the categories of racing hosted and the more limited infomration released by the FIM. The listings may not therefor be complete or fully up-to-date.
Circuits not homologated by the FIA or FIM are licensed by their local motorsport governing bodies and can still conform to the requirements of the various FIA and FIM gradings, but have not paid to be homologated as they only intend holding national and local level racing.
