    • - 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.

        @FlyingGuy
        Id want to post HP just to gauge whos in my group and who I can potentially ask for runs who would oblige...it sucks being in the low HP group and none of the "exotics" or big boys want to run you bc they thing their car is the $#@!...Like I want a video of me against the Gallardo just to see where my car stands etc...win or lose...so numbers posted would be good for the small kids on the block Click here to enlarge

To hold an event like this is pretty elite and you'd definately need more than a simple email to get the word out. start some fliers and videos to help promote and listing how many crew members etcc like shift-S3ctor otherwise its just gonna be an empty airstrip and a big bill to pay.
        Hi guys... friend of a friend came across this. Thought I'd share. I appreciate their constructive criticism, and hopefully it will make our event and future events better. All in all, i think we are doing pretty good on what was initially just a "simple email". So thanks for all the support and from extensive help from Sticky and the GermanBoost network.

        I dont think it has anything to do with guys thinking their car is the $#@!, I think it has more to do with people who are competitive by nature wanting a challenge and how would say a 600hp car challenge my 1000 plus hp car? Depending on how the event is structured and how many runs we get I would consider running anyone but if this event is set up bracket style as to name an individual winner people may not want to run their 1000 plus hp car against a 500 hp car for $#@!s and giggles and risk breaking something on a meaningless run. I think it is safe to assume that everyone registering for an event like this is both an enthusiest and a competitor, I do not think my car or me is better than the next guy, and I was not always racing AMGs with 1000 hp, in fact I would race anything I had just for the thrill.

        Do not even take it as criticisim, obviously a hater. Registration for your event has been open for five days and there is already an impressive list. Do you have Facebook page set up fot the event? I would suggest that. I registered for the Chicago wannagofast event this week as well and they do have a fb page and they post info daily as well as post pics of participants cars etc.

        This will be a good event, I kmow of a couple other people that are getting ready to register for this one.

        I agree with both, but I wouldn't mind running some of these high hp cars just to get it on video. Don't think I'll be able to line up next to badazz cars again.
