And the AWD is an advantage in both the dry and the wet, but makes a more noticeable difference in the wet.
Let it rain!

Heel & Toe does NOT mean literally using your heel and toe!!

Mod the driver, the return on investment is much higher.

Start with http://www.scca.org/

SoCal SCCA http://www.calclub.com/

If the Porsche club (PCA), NASA, Mustang, BMWCCA, Audi, etc. are active in your area, they may also sponsor autox events.

Evolution Autocross Schools are very good and well worth the price of admission, even if you have to travel to attend.

Here in Vancouver, the UBC club runs a slush series of Auto-X all winter. It runs rain, shine and yeah slush too. The track is an airport. I just got my STI and so I will run in January-after I break in the car a bit. Choice of tires can get tricky- I will probably run my winter all season Proxes 4 rather than my RE070 summer tires.
During the regular season [April to Oct.] AutoX run rain or shine and again, tire choices are critical. Most people here run R rubber and if they have Hoosiers or Kumho V710 rain is very tough for them. Kumho Victoracer, Pirelli Sport Comp R and Yok 032R do better, and those on ultra HP street tires do relatively better in the rain. Track work sucks then!
BTW: Has anyone tried the 245/40 Yok A048? They look good on paper.

BTW2: In Vancouver, The VCMC club gives a Velocity driving course in April. This is a 2 day course [1 class, 1 driving] and it teaches how to set up your car, and practice on various parts of a Solo2 course [slalom, 180 turn, 360 circle, launching and braking]. Since I have a new car, I will sign up for this. Last year's winner in AS drove an STI [he went from RE070, to V70A to V710- the last being his fastest tires according to him] and just narrowly beat 2 S2000s.
