Historic Formula Ford Racing is a division of the Historic Racing and Sports Car Club of New Zealand.

The division features Formula Ford cars that were first raced between 1967 and 31 December 1989, and includes famous marques such as Lola, Crossle, Swift and Van Diemen. The cars in the Historic Formula Ford Racing series run to Formula Ford regulations and as such the engines "blue printed" engines such as they fit the rules.

With upwards of twelve race weekends each season, and upwards of 30 car grids at each event, Historic Formula Ford Racing is the strongest division of the HRSCC and offers up exciting racing from the head to the tail of the fields.

The CFC is divided into two divisions: Class 1 (for cars 1967 to 30 June 1980) and Class 2 (for cars 1 July 1980 to 31 December 1989). These cars race in the Chocolate Fish series.

The majority of racing takes place at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, but rounds also visit Pukekohe Park Raceway and Manfield (outside of Palmerston North) and Taupo.
