• - 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

      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.

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.
        I totally agree, but some people are like that though. When I went to the Shift Sector event. I put 480hp on my car, I wanted to race some of the 550hp cars and they looked at me like I'm stupid. They don't understand power to weight, and they do think they're the $#@! when I say race my "Cobalt". So now, I'm putting 500 or 550 on my car.

        Most of the people at the event should be pretty cool about it all. Alot of the contacts I have mae so far in other events have been very fun and enjoyable people. A real enthusiast wont look down on a car like that, but, as mentioned earlier will be more intrigued by the notion of 500+ HP out of a cobalt!
        I will personally talk to the Gallardo (local friend) and arrange that matchup myself Click here to enlarge

        I agree with everything you said....And im also competitive by nature and enjoy challenges...Me and you are not worlds apart...Just our cars are Click here to enlarge

        I didnt mean to imply that they think their car is the "$#@!" but just used that for lack of better words...I think you know what I meant tho? In my world most people from other platforms are already unsuspecting of the 335i since they think M3s are the best thing since sliced bread and no other BMW is worthy unless its an M3/M5...I can take most M3/M5s with mild bolt ons (as long as their not blown)..So it already sucks setting up runs with this car ive seen it in person at Shift Sector...Same problem the Cobalt @fastgti69 will have potentially too...Just want to make sure I get my share of friendly runs thats all Click here to enlarge

        I have a Porsche 996 Turbo with the old Evoms/GIAC setup. Probably about 650 Crank. Nothing crazy, but it's fun. I'll run with anyone that will oblige me. Can't wait!

        Man, now I really can't wait. Gotta make sure my car will be 100% ready and tuned with 100 octane for these runs. Your 996 turbo and the Gallardo is gonna be awesome.

        he's not pulling your chain. The big HP supras that have shown interest or stated they were going, have yet to actually pay. So they are yet to be on the listClick here to enlarge
