My BMW 5 cylinder was successful in fending off Dan today and keeping him away long enough for the checkered flag.

To the OP...

M Club and TDE are both fun but in different ways. M Club has lots of room to "breathe" and run freely. You can really learn the track and have room to try things.

Then TDE is like a fatal four way. You're always mixing it up with other cars. But TDE really does have the best combination of classes and instructors. AND their standards for moving up is much higher. From my observations, a TDE driver progress significantly faster that going through other DE organizations as a result of the classes, instructors, AND traffic. The main complaint about TDEs green and blue groups is traffic. But anyone can drive their line on an open track. Driving in traffic with cars in front and behind you is way harder and can be a lot more fun. Rick, who runs TDE, is real quick to shut people down who aren't letting people pass. So there are some traffic jams but its always manageable and its a good learning experience.
