ROAD RACING is motor cycles racing on a paved circuit with both left and right turns. Road racing is therefore distinct from both off road racing & oval track racing. Road racing may not be on purpose-built race tracks (called road courses) and public roads. This will be a mass start event.
CIRCUIT RACING Racetracks are primarily designed for competition through speed, featuring defined start-finish lines. Some sports merely measure endurance, or how long a competitor can race. Racetracks can host individual or team sports. Racetracks can feature mass or fixed starts, with associated equipment. They invariably feature a pit lane, and usually timing equipment. Also on temporary circuits, such as closed-off airport runaways.
MOTOCROSS (or MX) is the direct equivalent of road racing, but off road, a number of bikes racing on a circuit. Motocross circuits are constructed on a variety of non-tarmac surfaces such as dirt, sand, mud, grass, etc., and tend to incorporate elevation changes either natural or artificial jumps on which bikes can get airborne. Motocross has another noticeable difference from road racing, in that starts are done in mass, with the riders alongside each other.
HILL CLIMB is wherea single rider climbs or tries to climb a road going up a hill in the fastest time and/or the furthest up the hill before ceasing forward motion will be awarded as the winner. Tarmac events are typically on closed public roads and private roads.
DRAG RACING and/or SPEED is where two participants line up at a drag strip with a signaled starting line. Upon the starting signal, the riders accelerate down a track where their elapsed time and terminal speed are recorded. This can occur upon purpose built venues or in temporary venues. In addition to "regular" motorcycles, top racing motorcycles also could compete in this category.
