My knowledge of the origins of racing on both sides of the Atlantic is slim I admit but the UK had long track oval racing a long time ago at Brooklands. 1907 - 2 years before Indianapolis so maybe the UK "invented" oval racing??? The circuit was later used for the ww2 effort and not returned to racing. Most post ww2 racing in the UK then started to take place on former airfield perimeter tracks with left and right turns.
