“We are delighted to be offering memberships in the Honda Racing Line to universities involved with collegiate-level SAE programs,” said Jeff Barrow, HPD Manager of Commercial Motorsports.

“Both HPD and our parent company, American Honda, have long been associated with the SAE and the organization’s student competitions.  Many current HPD associates participated in Formula SAE and similar programs during their university years,” Barrow added.  “Now these programs will have access to our performance product lines as well as our talented technical support.”
