What Is HFF?
The HFF Challenge is a Time Trial series for front-wheel/front-engine Honda and Acura platforms hosted by Speed Ventures and sponsored by JHPUSA, Eibach, GearSpeed and Lucas Oil. The series is broken down into four classes utilizing a point system based on modifications to the car, i.e., tires, engine, weight reduction, etc. The classes are: Street, Modified, Super Modified, and Ultimate. The competition in the HFF Challenge is heavy, but the camaraderie is heavier, with plenty of new friendships being made and even more personal best lap times being posted.
