    • - 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

      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.

        to combat dust, i was going to say get the runway sweepers out there, but you could also see if the the local Fire Dep wants to get some testing doen (they usually have to do rotational testing) and spray down whatever side winds is coming from. could also see about lining that side with sandbags.. yes a lot of work with marginal return, but its something to consider if the dust is really a concern.

        The area fire dept is not much further then a mile away! That would be a good idea. I will try to contact them.

        not sure how events like this go, but a basic state reg on racing is that braking distance needs to equal acceleration distance
        That an NJ law?? Might be different in CA?

        yes,NJ law, but its also for different types of racing. the rules are very unclear and open to interpretation, this is NJ.. but its also easy to request an exemption..

        yea, watering it down is decent idea. I spent time cleaning runways for harriers and helo's, in a desert, and thats one method that worked, for a short period of time..

        Vinyl snow fence for the first 500 feet or so would be nice too

        Just remember I currently hold the record for fastest merc. I might have to keep my car out here for a couple more weeks and have a shoe drive it to keep things in order.

        I'm curious, for the 4-way, who would be providing the Weistec 2.3 liter car?

        Im talking about the 1/2 mile event not 1/4 mile...I can talk , I am registered. I think Earl should register and get someone to drive it if he is out of the country.

        If he is out of the country it's understandable. Maybe he trusts the Weistec guys to run his car?

        JRCart - JIM can talk, others can not.


        Joe - if the car stays out I would not ask Weistec to drive as the were involved with both cars.

        I figured most people were going to be running a higher octane fuel one way or the other. Hopefully we can make some arrangements so that not everyone has to haul fuel, but there has to be a demand sufficient enough for the supplier to come out. So hopefully we get enough feedback
