    • - 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

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.

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.

        I was thinking of having a meal Friday night at hungry hunter. Centralized enough for everyone and good food. There somewhat of a back room with multiple tables that we could try to lock down.

        Let me know if that works.

        Seems ok but they have no wine list I see on their website and from the video that is not a wine selection I would call "unparalleled" personally:



        Still, you know the area better than I do. This is definitely an option and that prime rib sure looks tasty.

        Just my suggestion. We can group enough people around without it being too formal, and not too honky-tonk either like some of the steakhouses etc. and for those that will be heading out to the club with KeiKei afterward, it's fairly close to the strip clubs.

        For myself, I'm just down for meeting new peeps, having a steak and a scotch and getting ready for an early day.

        forecast is showing a nice mostly cool day, 0% chance precipitation, and 1mph winds. Of course that could change, but it looks good. ALSO, sunrise is shown as approx 6:40 AM and sunset at 5:45 PM approx. So we may not have as much daylight lingering around very late, which means an earlier start the better! Get as many runs during daylight as possible. We will have the gate open at 6AM.

        Thanks for putting this together Tony, looking forward to it. I, for one, would be willing to pony up a little extra dough to get a trap setup out there and it sounds like others might as well. Either way, it'll be an awesome event.

        For dinner you might try an impromptu parking lot "show" - something with a big lot. We've done In-N-Out and places like that in the past. Most people wanna hang around the cars, talk shop and grab a quick bite. You might consider BJ's Brewery - huge lot, decent bar and wide selection. Count us (Some Norcal Vette guys) in for whatever, there'll be 7-8 of us and our trailer queens.

        What is the parking situation at the Padre? My rig is about 60ft long.

        Person I spoke to at the hotel said they offer valet and use a parking structure adjacent to the hotel. Not sure how secure that parking structure is, or if it will be able to accommodate something that long.

        Sounds good. I know some will want to huddle around cars, while others are actually looking forward to a decent (Bakersfield) meal. *PICTURE* The parking area around Hungry Hunter is mostly limited, as shown by arrows. Except to the west, where the CostCo parking lot is (boxed area). There is a nifty little pedestrian walkway to the restaurant from the boxed area. Best of both worlds possibly. Decent food, then decent area to group together without worrying about ricer-friday showing up.

        Also, are you guys and your Vettes all signed up? I think I have a couple from NorCal, but certainly not 7-8. Hit me up...

        Parking will be somewhat limited, as it is in basically the heart of Downtown and the parking structures may not quite accommodate . Also, I would not want XXX-amount of gear sitting outside of the Padre overnight on a Friday. Padre is listed as one of the nicer hotels, True. This also attracts the party scene to the inner bar. Not to mention, again, its downtown. Just my $.2 from a local.

        ...well I am used to hearing that my length is difficult to accommodate.

        Are you headed down to Weistec today? Get down there and get it done, no excuses!

        looks like I will be staying at one of the hotel chain dumps off the expressway.

        Thanks for the info.

        Can they get them coated, mids made and installed by Friday? I also assume you will have them throw on a new tune?

        I can already tell that they are way too busy to fit my little project in by next week, so I'm picking them up today and dropping them off to be coated by someone in LA. They'll be done Monday afternoon and then I have someone here locally who will do the install. Haven't decided how the mid section is going to work yet - hoping Weistec has something like an X section that I can pick up today - if not I'll just have one made and then reduce pipe diameter where it meets the OEM pipes near the rear end. Open to any suggestion you have and I was hoping to speak to Steve as well to see what he recommends. Thanks again man - very cool of you, Jim, can't say thank you enough. And like I said, drinks and lap dances are on me Click here to enlarge

        And for those of you who are wondering what we're talking about....Jim took his Evosport headers off his CLK and they were just laying in a heap at Weistec. I asked him what he was going to do with them and to my surprise he GAVE them to me. That's right, GAVE them to me. So big props to Jim for not only being very generous, but also a stand up enthusiast. Thanks again buddy.

        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
        I'm bringing a new, stock 2013 C63 P31 car to the event, so that should be fairly representative of how a stock Black Series would have performed.
