The turbo will put you into Street Modified (SM) or D Modified (DM) I think you would have more fun and more competition in SM. Personally, the stock hatch would be the car I would bring out first. Learn in something slow and on stock suspension to get a feel for how the sport is done. I am guessing that car would run in H Stock (HS)

The 2008 Nebraska Region SCCA schedule is still being set... but we normally do about a dozen events between the Omaha/CouncilBluffs/Lincoln/Hastings area. We also do about a half dozen RallyX events (think AutoX on dirt) as well as put on 4 road racing events between MAM and MPH.
You should be able to find it and more info on AutoX (aka Solo) here:
www.nrscca.com
You can also find ALL the rules at:

x2, it's very addicting and then you'll want to move on to bigger and better things! But solo2 is awesome and you get to push your car to the limits in a safe controlled environment.
