• - 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

        Please keep details on group lodging and parties as private messages or emails, I do not want to write a map for wouldbe theives. I have had an entire race trailer stolen when I raced superbikes and had one of my car trailers broken into an had a $12k set of unreplacable Dymag wheels and a bunch of tools stolen.

        Hello all, I registered here today, and have been enjoying the forum. I am running my '08 ZO6 at the Minter Field event and very much looking forward to meeting and racing some of you from this site. I plan on making the next Bakersfield Cars and Coffee saturday before the event, and hopefully I'll see some of you there.

        Welcome! This is a great forum, you should enjoy iy, the event has brought an influx of non-German muscle to the Forum, I think it is time they added a specific American muscle section to the forum.

        Very good advice. For myself, the group info will be shared in the final few emails to everyone. That will be any night-before dinner arrangements as well as any meet ups. Thank you for the heads up tho, it's keeps it in people's minds that may not have thought of it otherwise.

        The only other option would be a private thread, I believe Sticky can open a special locked thread that he controls who has access to post or view. I belong to other forums that have private sections. Its unfortunate that we even need to be having this discussion but millions and millions of dollars worth of exotic and sports cars and trailers loaded with tools and gear is a car thieves wet dream.

        I took the bet on the C63...

        On the CLK63 I'm just not sure for 5:1 although I think... we'll, let's just see Click here to enlarge

        PS is anyone logging in the area Friday night? I'll be at the Sleep inn in bakersfield. It's 7 miles from the strip, the nicest looking place so w/e. I don't feel like waking up at 5am for a morning drive.
        What other lodging options we got? I'll get in Friday night too.

        Yes this can be done.

        Additionally, I can add somewhere that only the people you mention can view your post. So, you could technically have a private discussion within the thread.

        I just googled Hotel in Shafter,ca and that's what I got near the Airstrip. There are like 5 others and they looked older and stanky. This one actually looks newer and I got it for 62 dollars for the double queen suite. LOL Has a TV fridge and wifi and has free breakfast. I can't ask for more. I'll go logging at night, come back kick it spark a blunt and have a beer. Talk about all the cars and $#@!. The night before is sick cause you get to meet everyone and actually talk to them about their car. At the event you just wanna go run someone before they find someone else.

        You're on ludes Sticky! lol 5 to 1 on the CLK is a very fair wager, I could blow a belt or have other mechanical trouble and then it would be easy money for you.
