It's an Electronic Differantial, as opposed to a mechanical one. When the system detects wheel spin it applies the brake to the faster wheel rather a mechanical action as a traditional diff does.

Read the post on DPM. It really does give the best description out there for the various modes.

I am also seeing heavy wear on track in the rear pads so will disable on next outing. 

I think the biggest point to not is that race mode doesn’t allow even more slip etc than Sport. It technically allows less. Turn it all off (esp light on, no race light) and the Bosch brain will let you be in control ?

Race mode allows no slip basically, it is the most efficient computer guided system, to go to "off mode", first turn and hold the dpm button to go to "race mode"   (right end) and release it, and then turn again the button to go to "off" (hold it until off appears on the dash), it is like that on my car.

Different method in a Sport 350 which the OP has as they don't have a rocker switch. However I don't know the procedure so will have to get a Sport 350 owner to describe.

As I further up: Hold down the race button until Race mode is active, then one quick push of the race button to turn it all off.

What display are you getting on your dash when you do this, as for me this reverts it back to comfort from what I can tell.

Hold it down for longer.

You may need to hold it down again rather than press it. 

Yes a double hold for about 2 seconds works for me!

So in summery (for my 350 Sport):

A single long press activates Race mode and illuminates the TC OFF (car with squiggly lines) & RACE on the dash.

A single long press of Race, whilst in Race mode, turns off the Race mode illumination on the dash but the TC OFF (car with squiggly lines) remains illuminated.
