Didn't know the term and had to google it, but surely there's a native speaker here that knows this? I figured it'd be something obscure (it's not), so I didn't even try to guess...

"I don't know what a tracker mortgage is" is an IRL meme here in Ireland, but I figured that someone here would surely know. :P

Is it a mortgage where the rate is based on some financial instrument (like a tracker)?

Let's move on. The answer is simply that it's a mortgage where the interest rate tracks the Central Bank's interest rate, with a certain offset (e.g. 1%). I don't think that's quite the same thing as Humch said…
