How does car insurance work on track days? Presumably your regular policy does not apply..

Absolutely right. No cover!

Wow those guys with their $300k track 911's are taking a bit of risk.
Not just their own driving but somebody else hooning around and causing damage.

Stay clear of the ones pushing things beyond their limits & itíll keep u out of trouble! You certainly donít want to be the cause of an expensive sudden stop...
