Regarding the tracks, i'd like to offer a possible explanation:
in my humble opinion, they could be straight Rilles: on the Moon can also be found sinuous and arcuate ones, but the ones posted here (IF they are rilles) are definately straight ones.
Hyginus Rille (straight)
I say this becauase of their appearance (which could be consistent with the ones of some rilles) and, on top of that, because at the same coordinates of one of these images it can be clearly seen that the area in question is rich of rilles: these are captures from Clementine-UVVIS Multispectral Mosaic, their resolution is the best available:
And these are 100% rilles.
Straight rilles are thought to be, basically, grabens:
since their scheme is in some cases like this one
it would make sense even the fact that some of them look to be parallel: that's normal in some cases.
you can check the area by yourself, with Clem-UVVIS Multispectral Mosaic: it's already centered at Lat -0.8 and Lon 24.8.
Just my two € cents

well, since I am in Asia, it is late now and I want to give it time for other people to come up with some suggestions. However, in the morning I will post another picture which shows more of this 'Rille' for further comment. It is just to keep you in suspense really! :-)
I think when you see the next photo you will be intrigued.
