The ring is considered a public road. But most policies and rentals companies exclude the ring or do so if there is any evidence that the driver was timing himself.
In the US all insurance companies exclude covering participation in a timed performance event. Timed being the operative word but they will cover performance schools and some will also cover open track days (so long as there is no timing equipment involved). Those companies will cover any damage in case of an incident then promptly drop you. Note that since drag racing (whether you are at a T&T or actually competing) is always timed it is always excluded and never covered.
Other cheap insurance companies will drop you if there is any indication that the insured car is used in any other way other than transportation. They will drop you if your car is modded in any way whether it is raced or not. An some like Geico Ins. will frequently check auto-X websites and if they find a policy holder involved they send them a letter and will drop them. So if you are doing a track day or a performance school look over your policy documents with a fine tooth comb especially the exclusion sections.

In Massachusetts, insurance will not cover damage on a closed course even if it is not timed.
The laws vary state to state. Sometimes if you want to play you gotta pay.
In the Northeast, check out www.comscc.com. This is a great, safe way to get out on the track.

So I just noticed, and that's a funny picture with the driver t-top off to make room for your helmet I'm guessing. It's always nice to see cars driven how they were meant to be.

From a couple weekends ago ...
Raced this guy like this for a full 1/2 hour. Came down to the chess game of who passed who and where on the final lap. I lost that game, but it was a heckuva lot of fun.
And I'm using $60 98+ 12" Wagner rotors from Autozone, $130 XP10 Carbotech pads and C5 calipers at $90 each on the front. Stock 95 rear calipers and rotors. No cooling ducts.
As you can see, the brakes were working great at the end of 30 hard minutes of track duty.
