Where do you live? I'm sure you can find an autocross car withing an hour drive of wherever you are.

As far as rallyx goes, find out to the stage rally groups in your area and tell them you are interested... those guys love to travel and love a fun event. For us it's really 1-2 guys who talk to the venues, invite rally drivers, bring cones and we've got ourselves an event.

Guess this is the one you are talking about:

http://www.cumberlandmotorclub.com/

I'm not very good with the geography of that area but here are a few more clubs in your region:

Also I don't know if you live close to NB or not but:

lol there was a grand am that was autocrossing last race but I did not race. I am hoping to do some runs this weekend. i want to get some drilled and slotted rotors. I can not stop as well with the big 18 inch rims. I am buying s subaru SVX just for autocross but It is not going to be ready until next season. I might do some winter autocrossing since the subaru is AWD. I just hope my car makes it. i am having some problems with it but it will not stop me from racing it. My buddy is bringing a trailer just incase something happens.

Just do an oil change and use good oil before the race... and make sure not to bounce off the rev limiter for too long (that's how I killed my first engine).
I have driven the Subaru RS in the winter... it's fun and quick... never tried or seen the SVX though.

ya i changed my oil 2 days ago. I have driven an svx and they handles well. the only problem that they are automatc. but i am planning on swaping in a wrx tranny. it is the most common 5 speed swap for those cars. Also i like the 3.3 h6 It has a lot of hp for how old it is. 228hp and 230 foot pounds of torque.

I was just looking at the SVX and IMHO the RS would be a much better choice for autox. SVX is 3500 pounds with 228hp vs. the RS which is 2700 lb with 165hp... for straight line acceleration the SVX would be faster but RS would corner a lot better. Try looking into the RS if you haven't bought the SVX yet and you are buying this for autocross only. I must say the SVX looks very good for a daily driver.
