Question Need help identifying this sport...

I need help id'ing a certain motorsport, if it exists.

The sport is like autocrossing, but with 2+ people. Instead of it being a time attack, it is head to head. It is kind of like a rally, but on paved, technical tracks.

The closest example I can think of is Need For Speed Underground 2's Street X. I was wondering if such a sport exists in real life because it seems more interesting than, say, autox.

I know that scca sactions certain sports like club racing, but it usually done on oval type tracks.

Thanks

P.S. Does anyone know if mountain racing/tougue racing is organized in the states yet? "I know it's a stupid question, but i was just curious...

I have not heard of the type of racing you are referring to, sorry. However, you have a misconception about SCCA Club Racing. It is not guys/gals going in circles or ovals. Club Racing is done on road courses or a roval track.

This is an example of a roval:




This is an example of a road course:

Yea, while Pro-Solo is "head to head" it's not door to door racing because it's on seperate tracks.

There's plenty of organisations that do road racing at a grassroots level, SCCA and NASA are the two big ones, but then there's BMWCCA and PCA racing and various other localized groups.

Here in Atlanta, we have Mirrorkana aka DoubleCross. Kinda like Pro Solo, but two cars on the same course.
