I`m developing a comercial app and I'm going to include some information about racetracks to it. I'm going to use follow information: a name of racetrack, a distance of one lap, names of turns. The app isn't a game.

I couldn't find any rules for using racetraks names. Some racetrack like Nürburgring belongs to commercial firms, so it names can be trademarks. What about are racetracks belong to goverments? Should I ask about licens for it?


Yes you can.

The pieces of information you are going to include are facts. Facts are not copyrightable.

The names will be trademarks but you will not be pretending to have any connection with them, so just using them for reference is fine.
