• - No Fly Zone - California private airstrip roll on race event March 2nd, 2013 presented by the GermanBoost.com German Performance Car Forum Network

      The GermanBoost Network is pleased to announce - No Fly Zone - a private airport roll on race event taking place on March 2nd, 2013 just outside of Bakersfield, California. This will take place on the Minter Airstrip located at 201 Aviation Street in Shafter, California. This event is limited to just 100 cars. GermanBoost.com is the official German automotive forum sponsor for the event and will be providing media coverage as well as photo/video editing and hosting services and support.


      - No Fly Zone - is an Omega Motorsport Event operated by Tony Lopez (e-mail thatoneguy3000@hotmail.com). All inquiries regarding participation are to be sent to his e-mail. GermanBoost of course will assist with any questions. Tony lives in Bakersfield, California and this is an event with many participants knowing one another and just a group of automotive enthusiasts. No pretentious nonsense, this is an event for car guys. Spectators are not allowed. Participants, sponsors, and pit crews only.

      Total run distance of the runway to be used for acceleration is 1/2 mile. Plenty of run off room for deceleration.

      Pictures of some of the hardware attending as well as the quality of the airstrip tarmac are below. You will be happy to know the quality of this tarmac is MUCH higher than that which was seen at a recent airstrip event in California which was in poor condition with an incredible amount of dust making for potentially dangerous conditions for high powered cars as seen here: http://www.germanboost.com/content.p...-on-the-runway

      As previously mentioned, the cost is $200 per vehicle and there are 100 spots. Spots are filling up fast and here is some of the hardware already registered to attend:






















      BimmerBoost.com will also be providing T-Shirts for the staff and shirts will be available to purchase for those in attendance. One of these two designs will be chosen:








      Here are the further details on the event. Do not hesitate to post, e-mail, or PM with any questions:

      Saturday March 2nd 2013
      Minter Field
      201 Aviation Street Shafter, California
      $200 per vehicle

      Thank you for considering joining us for NO FLY ZONE, our very first airport roll race event!

      - Sign ups will handled exclusively through this email address. Payment will be handled either in person via cash, check or money order, or, as in most instances, via PayPal.

      PayPal payments will submitted to this same email address. Please be aware that there are TWO (2) different ways that PayPal lets you submit a payment. Either a PURCHASE, or as a GIFT. If submitting payment as a PURCHASE, please include $10 to cover the PayPal fees. A GIFT submission does not require any fees.

      - When submitting payment, please list YEAR, MAKE, MODEL and estimated CRANK HORSEPOWER, and a 3-digit CAR I.D number in the free text box of the PayPal submission.


      -The CAR I.D. number will be used as the identifying tag for your vehicle during registration and the event. .

      - A spot is not reserved or issued until payment is submitted. Once payment is submitted and cleared, the event forms will be emailed to you. Please print and fill these forms out and bring them with you to the event. Included are a Self-Tech form, and a participant Waiver of Liability form.

      - Each registered participant is allowed THREE (3) "pit crew members" to accompany them. The fee for these "pit crew members" will be $10 each. Each one will also have to print and fill out these forms, and bring them with them. Crew is asked to arrive along with the registered participant, even if in a seperate car or tow vehicle. This will help expedite the check in process, and ensure that only those that are expected to attend are there. This event is not open to the public, and we can not accommodate everyone that will want to come to watch. These not directly involved or accounted for in the above mentioned criteria, will NOT be allowed access to the event.

      - A couple days before the event, a final reminder email will be sent out that will include final instructions, general rules and a running count of the cars attending.

      As always, feel free to ask any and all questions you may have.

        I will have my laptop so anyone is welcome to give me their SD card at the event to edit the vids and put them up.

        Going to hit up Famoso drags Feb 9th. If the trans survives I'll race the white 135i. If trans dies then I'll just runway race our F30 335 and help customers with their tuning, etc.

        I agree, a lot of people do it.
        I understand not everyone has the means but for a treat once a year, kind of like a little vacation. I have a lot of friends that are not loaded with cash but they're car guys and manage to get their cars to events and shows all over the country. A group of my friends do M fest in Vegas, thats 1700 miles away. If there is a will there is a way, and the guy that I responded to has a E60 M5 in his sig so he can't be hurting financially I would guess.

        Live stream would be epic. You just gotta have like two guys recording on a tripod each run. One from the beggining of the roll cones to see if if anyone got a jump or started first etc. and another at the end of the cones to see who finishes if it's close. Obviously both will be recording the race the whole time as well.

        Yes, two guys definitely. Start, and finish. Maybe middle?

        Livestream (http://new.livestream.com/) is becoming the internet news blogger's best friend, if you buy their broadcaster module (http://store.livestream.com/products...am-broadcaster), you'd be able to stream video for anyone who wants to watch using GoPros or handheld cams.

        The logistics of a livestream could get difficult tho

        Any WiFi signal, and I know that some smart phones can be used as WiFi Hotspots so there you go. This list is over a year old, but here's phones that have hotspot capabilities: http://www.computerworld.com/s/artic...t_capabilities

        In all seriousness sorry I won't be there. I have a small sailing yacht in Sardina which needs some TLC.

        joe - keep me up dated on the east coast events if you manage to pull off.
