    • - 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

        Purchased a couple new little items for the event. 2013 GMC Denali 3500 HD and a 52 ft gooseneck trailer. I needed something that would hold two cars.

        That's a very nice trailer.

        I'll probably have to pick something up although not that elaborate.

        It's a buyers market. Got the trailer decked out with 42ft of E-Track, 110 electrical, flourescent interior lighting, quartz halogen exterior work spot lights, tons of cabinets, all LED marke/running lights and electric hydraulic landing gear all for $26k. All I need is to have an awning installed and put a generator and air compressor in it. I saved a ton by going factory direct, most of these trailers are built in Elkhart, IN and South Bend, IN which is only about 125 miles from my house so it makes it pretty easy to go pick up and when you do you get wholesale pricing.

        LOL, I have enough of those on the payroll already.

        Here's my other hauler and trailer, unfortunatley the hauler is too long to put a big enough trailer behind that would hold two cars, the hauler is about 38 ft and I would need at least a 36 ft trailer so I would be rolling close to 80 ft overall....the DOT and state police frown on rigs that long.

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.
        its awesome to see that your cool with running anyone. We need more people out there like that!

The track officials didnt care what we did, we were staying on the gas in our cars for about 2000 ft and braking at the last second fistailing around and racing back to the start line, it was almost like a road course....soon after that Fontana closed forever Click here to enlarge
        bahahah We ran the RV with trailer at timmayfest 2 years back, and I might have been the one hanging out of the side with a bottle of vodka. Anyone that knows us, can tell you that is totally out of character for us...

        Yes it does, along with a 2000 watt stereo system and full DJ gear, although it usually only gets installed for infield parties at NASCAR races or concerts up at places like Alpine Valley.
