One of the hottest months of the year in one of the hottest regions of SoCal might not sound ideal for a track day, but like clockwork the annual FF Battle—an event that pits both front-wheel drive street and race builds against one another in a Time-Attack format—delivered the sort of excitement and competitive lap times you've come to expect from the long-running event.

Refining and adjusting the rules and class layouts over the years, the 11th annual FF Battle proved to be the best yet, hosting over 25 competitors divided into two classes. The Street Class was filled with vehicles that didn't feature aggressive aero and completely stripped out interiors. In addition, each of the cars were piloted by their owner. In stark contrast, the Race Class competitors had a bit more freedom to step into the wild side with aero changes, gutted cabins and, if so desired, a hired gun at the helm.

At the end of the day, with temps well above 100 degrees, the Street Class saw its first female champion, who was just coming off of a big win at VTEC Club weeks prior. In addition, a new FF Battle Streets of Willow lap record was set in the Race Class, but it wasn't the wild track car you're no doubt envisioning. Here's a full recap of our most exciting FF Battle to date!

In addition, this year we've also included some raw, uncut, in-car footage of the fastest laps in each class!
