There's no real method. For instance, there's a track near Valencia Spain. I searched the internet to find it and found this link:
http://www.automodelismo.com/circuit..._almusafes.gif
looking at the highway names and the nearby references in the map I came across it in google earth. It is called Autet:
39°18'15" N
0°24'59"W

I guess it's just a matter of patience

I really can't find a way to post the Google Earth screens, but go ahead and try searching for them with the coordinates that have been posted, if you have some time though.
