    • - 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!

      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.

        Yes, please do email some options for hotels. I stayed at the Best Western in Kettleman City before the Coalinga run and was quite disappointed!!

        I'm looking forward to the dinner Friday night.

        Tony,
        I just looked up hotels in Bakersfield and the Padres Hotel came up as the best in town. Is that true?
        Any idea if we can park our cars ourselves?

        the Padre is a nice and classic hotel, but it is the party spot, amid party central (and sometimes gritty) downtown Bakersfield. I'm not too familiar with parking tho. Mostly street parking around the area, due to it being right in the middle of the bar scene downtown

        The Marriott by the Convention Center is a nice place reasonably priced with a lot of open space parking. The Doubletree by HWY 99 & 58 is also a good choice.

        Any possibility of us being able to drop our trailers at the airport the night before the event?

        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.

        Dennis? Hope to see you out at Cars and Coffee. Thanks for joining
        Yes it is I.

        No worries, thought it was at least worth asking.

        no prob. Obviously you wont want to drive around the trailer to wherever we go eat. So if you don't want to unload one of the rides to come to dinner, Myself or one of the other locals would be more than happy to scoop you up.

        unless of course we end up dining near where you are staying. Then that's walking distance Click here to enlarge
