    • - 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:

        Sorry Sticky but you do not know what you speak. Please see below.

        150mph = 220 feet per second
        200 mph = 294 feet per second
        250 mph = 366 feet per second

        These events are all about the back half, the big hp cars don't start covering their ground until the last 1/2 mile. Furthermore, I thought this was a trap speed event and not a drag race??? A car can cross the line second yet be trapping at a much much higher speed, right? I am going for trap speed, not sure what the rest of you are shooting for.

        Ya of course you can cross traveling faster that's usually the car with more HP. Regardless, this event is half mile racing and not trap speed. The Texas Mile is different.

        And please don't use the I don't know what I'm speaking of line especially when it doesn't apply. I've seen some stuff from you where I've bit my lip but I read and write about performance cars daily. This forum is also built around my knowledge and I think the result more than supports it. My point on this was ultimately that if you can't put your power down in a half mile rolling event the car is one dimensional. That may be the intention but if I have way more HP and I can't show it off in that span I'm not about to tell guys on the highway to run me to 220 just so I can win.

        I thought this was a top speed event, I kinda lost interest now knowing that it is not.

        While we wont have speed trap equipment like at the Texas invitational or Texas/Mojave mile, there have been a couple people stating they were bringing or had available speed radar guns. The event was never marketed as a trap speed event, but as a rolling race. However I will now make sure to have those speed guns there, knowing some may be more interested in top speed. Hope that helps

        .....not even sure how a rolling "race" could ever be fair if not trapped or timed???

        kind of a let down to be honest.

        I'm kind of surprised you didn't realize this was a side by side roll on racing event for a 1/2 mile. It's very similar to the other roll on racing events.

        Regardless, if they have speed guns there then cool we can get traps.

        I apologize for the apparent let down. We had looked into getting digital speed trap equipment. Maybe for the next one.

        No worries, but not sure I am bringing out the big hp CLK for an un-timed event. Probably just going to run the 800 hp C BS
