Over that period someone could probably develop from a complete novice to a mid/high intermediate driver in the CCA program. Just two days of M school I couldn't see someone getting much past the novice level, maybe at best to low intermediate. It's all about seat time and experience to develop track skills.

Are you making a quality vs. quantity statement?

If our friend Steve is a noob at the track, I would almost argue exclusively for the M School. These are the informative days. There is also theory at M School.

No one doubts the value of the CCA events but M School is a premier driving school run by pros. Plus, it is one helluva experience too.
