    • - 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
      201 Aviation Street Shafter, California
      $200 per vehicle

      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.

        Weeeeell... Good to see the numbers out!

        Only it's a little depressing for myself personally. I see about 20 cars I want to roll with Click here to enlarge If my car didn't have me chasing down some problem, I'd make a last minuet entry and flatbead my M out there. I'm going to work on it tomorrow. If by some miracle I get it worked out I might just make it happen.

        I've spent a substantial amount of time these past 2 years out on the east coast. A good time in Cali is looong overdue. Click here to enlarge Especially if there's lamb, wine, churros and strippers involved!

        Damn....your car being there would have gotten me to fire up the CLK for a pass or two. Another year and no race against you. I am taking both cars home shortly after this event. I have a couple little events planned in Southern Cali over the next couple weeks but then the cars are headed home to Chicago.

        Trust me man I'm bummed too as I want to run. It's only fair since the wait has been so long for me to come to you in that case once it's ready.

        Dude are you kidding me ??? I've held off commenting on your build for a ling time bro, but this $#@! is getting ridiculous man. If and when that $#@!er is ever done it better be able to break the $#@!ing sound barrier with the amount if time they've had it. I could launch a $#@!ing monkey into orbit and bring back a human in the same amount of time you've been working on that fart can Click here to enlarge

        On a different note, I'll be headed down to Weistec tomorrow for a few things - I know you wanted a stock Black Series for comparison against other cars but I'm sorry to disappoint, I won't be bringing a stock Black Series Click here to enlarge

        @Amerkin - I would like to run you.
        Sure thing, we can set it up at the dinner or on Saturday. I'll be the old guy with glasses. :-)

        Regarding reservations let's see. I want to get the guys coming in Friday together so we should start hammering something out.
        My pleasure. The Woolgrowers is a Bakersfield mainstay, one of the places that several well known celebs/pols frequent if in town. Wine is part of the meal, and they have a full bar.
