Oh I keep my eyes open around here. Road Atlanta, VIR, and CMP are the one's I've done in the past, and for the full weekend, the entry fees were 175-300$ I do believe. The last one I did was at the VIR track(full course/2 days), and it was most certainly one of the most fun times I've had in a car, despite supercharger belt slippage....but later fixed.
There is a "Ro-Val" here locally(2hr drive)that I plan to visit once or twice this upcoming season, but autox will still be 90% of my hobby.
Keep in mind, I am no advocate for autox, I actually think the classing system sucks.
For anyone that hasn't open tracked, there is nothing like doing 140mph+ down a straight, then watching the braking zone numbers decrease as you try to get the car settled down to drive the line out of the turn, right off the inside rumble strip. Don't even get me started on the "up hill S's" at VIR.
