In the US we seem to prefer oval races with high-speed banked turns to the street courses that seem to be favored in Europe. Are there any "superspeedway" tracks in europe?

    "Are there any?" is a poor question in any format. – wax eagle Apr 12 '12 at 16:39

    @waxeagle - Is it the question you have a problem with or the way it is phrased. I am open to suggested changes. – Chad Apr 12 '12 at 16:42

Indeed. But the emphasis with respect to oval racing is in the US it seems.

Since I'm no expert in car races, I've had to lookup Wikipedia's opinion on oval tracks being called speedways. However, the name "speedway" also seems to be in use for motorcycle races (on tar, and off-road) as well as for ice speed skating.

The German Wikipedia mostly lists the US Tracks but does mention one track in the UK: Rockingham which claims to be the fastest in Europe, and the Lausitzring in Germany (German language only).
