Versus starting out doing HPDEs and kind of learning car control, spin control, and basic techniques at speed. So I think you need a lot more times to get it right in an HPDE environment. I think the Advanced school is more like a HPDE.

From my perspective: I started in 2008 by attending BMW's 2 day Adult Car Control School and then returned later the same year for their 2 day M School. The next year I attended BMW HPDE's and haven't looked back. I think this helped me gain the experience I needed before bringing on the speed.

M School was great, I can't say enough good things about it but it's a beginning of your learning. BMW HPDE's took my learning to the next level.
