Check www.motorsportreg.com and plug in your zip code and distance you want to travel. Not all the events use motorsportreg.com, but a lot do, so it is a good starting point.

If you are at all interested in performance, go for the 330. If you go for a convertible, DEFINITELY go fo rthe 330 (the extra weight really makes a difference with a 325).
