Advanced M school

From $4,695

The faint of heart need not apply

You’ve taken M School and had the instructors pat you on the back. Now it’s time for the
next challenge: Advanced M School. Here you’ll explore the limits on high-speed tracks
that get your heart rate up, and you closer to becoming a true pro.

What you'll learn

Follow the leader

You go where you look, and here you’ll be looking at our lead instructor’s car as they guide you around the proper line at ever-increasing speeds.

Game time

These classes offer the thrill of full-on race courses, and you’ll experience everything they have to offer on day two. Remember all your brake points and when to go flat out, and you’ll soon be lapping faster than you thought possible.

Know when to Stop

Going fast around a track means knowing when to go slow. We’ll break down each section into manageable challenges so you can learn the proper driving line through each.

Slip, then grip

Take one M car. Add water, subtract grip. Feel the difference between under- and oversteer, and learn to control the back of the car with throttle. Get it right, and you’ll start to glide sideways through our polished concrete skidpad with ease.
