Sorry Steve, your logic is escaping me. You may lack the confidence of going on the track because you have not been there before yet the first time you want to do it is with your own car with decent instruction from BMW CCA?
You will get excellent instruction at M School, lots of seat time, you will get everything from basic car control to advanced open lapping in BMW's own cars.
The only exercise that may scare seems to be the heel-n-toe, don't worry about it, most people suck.
You will be a much better driver after M school than out of a CCA event, by a long stretch.
BTW, one of my classmates crashed and wrecked a M5, after he cleared medical, he went out in the next session.
