At times of public access, the Nürburgring is considered a public road. Traffic laws apply e.g. no passing on the right, no tailgating. However, because the track is consistently more than 12 meters wide, there are no speed limits whatsoever and there is no police on site to check non-existent speed limits.

As required by German law, any vehicle with German registration has to be insured. Therefore, you have coverage on any public road. Because the Nürburgring is a public road at times of access, insurance coverage applies.
