Ok, guys, I had a taste of AutoX this past weekend in my wife's smart at a smart convention in Orlando. And I am now hooked for sure. My question is what is the difference in the amateur associations, and is one better than the others for a complete newbie like me?

I'm a newbie too, but I've gone to 2 different events. Each was hosted by a different association. I don't know which clubs are close to you, but here's my own experience:

It seems like SCCA is the most popular. They put on a nice event, and they're clearly a serious club because they had like an hour of speeches/lecturing at the start of the event. lol

I realize safety is important, but they talked about a lot of other organizational stuff too.

The 2nd event I went to was organized by Autocrossers Incorporated. Their event was well done too. I think I prefer the way the SCCA event was organized (how the cars were lined up, where you park, etc), but the Autox Inc guys charge less money and host special events where you get 8 runs instead of just 4. I plan on attending events from both organizations.

In FL I only know of SCCA CFR running the AutoX as I'm getting back into it sometime this year up in Brooksville. Been on a 2yr Hiatus and miss it way too much... NASA mostly runs Track Days out in FL at the Various Road Courses.
