The Nurgburgring is basically a public road, there is no liability if you crash you're responsible just like if you crashed on a public road. The police still have control and will give you tickets for passing on the right, avoiding the speed limits where they exist (they do exist) and being wreckless.
Back to the topic at hand, I think it's great that such a track is being built but unless it's as easily accessed and affordable as the real thing, it won't quite satisfy my dream of a Nurburgring of our own in the US.
