If you've been there and done that and are ready for more, than I'm just telling you what you already know, but it doesn't sound like it or you wouldn't be asking these questions. The SCCA runs classes in autocross (Solo-II is SCCA lingo). Find your local chapter and make a connection. If you want higher speed etc, look into Solo-I.
When you connect with your local SCCA folks, you'll also be in a great place to learn about advanced driving classes. The regulars there, specially the instructors, will have attended a variety of courses and can tell you why one is better for some drivers and another works well for others. They also will always have book recommendations. There are good ones and of course each will have his favorite, but they will probably agree on a core group.
I'm actually looking for something different than autocrossing. I'm interested in something that shows you semi-advanced driving techniques like: clutchless shifting, finding the optimal apex/line in a curve or salom, using throttle to steer, 4 wheel drifts, slide into turns, fast 180's, as well as the elusive heel-toe. I'll eventually do autocross and driving schools, but that will have to wait till spring (have snow tires on).
Autocross is a great way to get your feet wet performance driving. Most fun you can have with your clothes on.
