Road racing is a general term for most forms of motor racing held on paved, purpose-built race tracks (i.e. "road courses"), as opposed to off-road racing. Temporary facilities built on paved airport runways and closed-off public roads (such as street circuits) are usually also included in the definition.

Road racing is also occasionally conducted using the infield and oval portions of tracks making a "roval", such as the 24 Hours of Daytona.
