    • - No Fly Zone - 3/2/2013 roll on race event pictures and impressions

      GermanBoost.com is happy to report that the No Fly Zone private airstrip roll on race event was a resounding success. A lot of serious hardware showed up and Tony from Omega Motorsport Events did an excellent job organizing everything. Everyone knew where to go and what to do. The pictures below showcase what was there and how things looked quite well. Yes, everyone wants race videos and those will all be coming shortly and will be posted throughout the week.

      For now, enjoy the pictures. The organization was well done and there are photos showing the quality of the tarmac. I think all participants who experienced this event as well as another competing event can state this venue and tarmac were of much higher quality.

      For those who want an event T-Shirt please private message me here or E-mail me at admin@germanboost.com. T-Shirts are $20 each.

      I would also like to personally thank Tony and his wife as well as @Weistec and @Terry@BMS . For some inexplicable reason Weistec and Burger Tuning just treat myself and this entire network incredibly well. They also always behave like complete professionals. A personal shout out as well to @JRCART (as well as his friend Rich) who brought out his vehicles and came in all the way from Chicago and @LZH who had some car trouble but still came out.

      Looking forward to doing this type of event again soon... with my own car in the mix. Photos below.

        Well considering it actually is a serious M3 build and not just mild boost from the same blower already available I'd say so.

        I feel you bro. It sucks cause I don't think I'll make it to Shift-S3ector and any other event I'd go to would have to be in cooler weather... well looks like my next airstrip wont be till this Fall.

        Yeah that's it. Both cars pulled hard, period. I'm glad they even gave me a chance to run. Gives me something to think about and possibly work toward.

        I ran I believe three BMWs, two M3s one turbocharged and one centrigugal supercharged, and Terry Burgers 135i (lost to Terry only), and a Merc e63 with aWeistec stage2 blower that I beat. Does anyone have video of these races against my silver C6 ZO6? I also ran and beat the red Viper (1/2 car when he went into fifth), Audi R8 v10, red '13 Shelby GT500 two times, black '11 GT500, red '03 Cobra Mustang (showed 625hp). I lost to the black 458 Italia by 1/2 car and the white GTR (600hp displayed and on e85) by one car and Terry's car mentioned earlier by one car. I would love to see any video that's available. I know several of the drivers were surprised to lose to a basically stock ZO6 (CAI and a tune) with an old man driving (especially the '03 Cobra who warned me he had busted off the ZR1, and felt so confident that he had a passenger along to see his inevitable win. I told him the ZR1 driver was...well, not as capable), but the vids would be greatly appreciated.

        Doubt there would be an event like this in summer. I mean if there is I might go, if it's like more up north where it's much cooler.

        Man your car was doing very well that day. Video with you and the 600whp GT is just unbelievable.

        NO FLY ZONE was a very successful event, and I could not have done it without the help of everyone listed below. I hope all participants enjoyed the day. This email is to acknowledge that it could not have been possible without the help of many people, so please take a few minutes and read through my expressions of gratitude towards all staff, workers, sponsors and participants.
        -------------------------
        ---------------------------------------

        -Omega Motorsport Events Staff-
        First and foremost, I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all my staff that helped throughout the day. Erica, my wife, thank you very very much. You put up with me, and didn't kill me when I told you I rented an AIRPORT. She was the go-to person at the motor-home, getting everyone registered and checked in, along with Megan, who was also helping out big time with the two lines of people at check-in. Then there were the event staff. You guys were instrumental in the overall running of the event, between trash duty, staging duty, runway duty and general assistance. Our day started early and you guys stuck with it from the setting up of cones, to the picking up of the cones. Start to finish. I could not have made this event function at all, let alone as efficiently as it did. You guys were everything for me at the event, and I hope you realize that! Hope you guys had a little fun, and thank you again. Thank you to each of you again; Austin, Jason L, Jason M, Oscar, Marcel, Brian, Mike, Brady, Megan and ERICA.

        -Event Security- Big thanks to the big guys of the day. Magnum Mauga and Onosai Sotoa were our contracted security for the event. They helped keep a good eye on the expensive equipment out there, backed up our staff when needed, and only had to talk to a couple people. They were also their to converse with the police that showed up (unaware of our days activities). Most importantly for myself, is they kept our staff and those around feeling secure at all times, especially in the beginning when there were so many people at check in. They helped to keep things as orderly as possible and were nothing short of professional at all times. We will be seeing them again for any personal, private or event security!

        -Fire Rescue- I'm sure everyone saw the big rescue vehicle that was onsite. The guys from Advanced Fire and Rescue were with us all day and were a most valuable asset. Thankfully we did not have any rescue type situations, but we knew we had the right guys in case we did. Even still, Matt and his partner were a great help. They gave the area a once-over before we started and gave us the all clear to begin. They brought an ease to everyone's mind having their vehicle on site with full EMT medical gear, vehicle extrication equipment and fire suppression capability including the water tank their truck was equipped with. They also went out onto the event runway anytime we thought there was debris or a spill in the lanes, and checked it out for us. There was one incident of an oil spill (off the runway!) that they went and swept up for us without even being asked. These guys remained professional at all times, and if these two guys are an example of the company as a whole, we will be sure to use their services again. Thanks for helping keep everything safe, guys!

        -Airport- I want to make sure to thank the venue for allowing us to entertain ourselves on their airfield. Jonathan was my contact person throughout the whole planning, and he went out of his way to make sure we had it setup well. He allowed us to scope out the airfield a couple times in planning our event. He made a concession for us to be able to close two of the three active runways so that we had plenty of room for our event. I know there was some aircraft that landed and took off from the active runway during our day, and that made some people nervous. I can assur you however, that the active runway area did not cross our event area at all. And Jonathan made sure to let every bit of air traffic know about it in advance. Ken was our onsite guy for the day, and he helped us with a lot of things during the course of the day. I'm sure it was a bit of a headache, but it was appreciated. Thank you very much Jonathan and the Minter Field staff for putting up with us. I know we had a couple minor hiccups, but thank you again very much.

        -----------------------EVENT SPONSORS-----------------------

        -Joseph and GermanBoost.com- Joe and the forum were my headline sponsor for the event, (you saw them headline the flyer and shirts), and our exclusive forum sponsor. They came on board shortly after I announced the event, and were ready to hit the ground running with promotion. He and his guys designed the flyer around a photo we took at the field, and also designed the shirts for the event. The promotion and exposure from his site helped expand the reach of my event beyond what I could have possibly done solo. The GermanBoost.com forum that he runs was an asset that was greatly appreciated for the way he pushed and hyped the event from every perspective. Many forum regulars attended and helped develop the hype that surrounded the event for the last couple months. He initiated our official event thread on his site that let us pool many of our participants into one area and chat with one another. Many, MANY thanks again to the GermanBoost.com Performance Network. As a reminder, he is the one that has event T-Shirts available. Please feel free to email him for T-Shirt inquiries and he will get you taken care of.

        -Rodney at Independent Detail- Owner Rodney Bowser and his guys helped in many, many ways. One was the strong promotion of my event to just about everyone one of his clients. You will have seen his display at the airport with a ton of product and many of his clients were in attendance. He helps keep many of the cars, including that F40, near flawless. He was gracious enough to let us put a large event poster at his shop, along with some flyers to help promote locally. This generated a lot of talk between him and clients, and the effort showed by the amount of people that he sent me to register. A couple of which included the yellow F430 and the classic '69 Camaro. He also got me in contact with one of the local food trucks that was out there. Rodney and his staff also helped at the staging lanes and start line, helping keep order and forwarding people to the start lines. Thank you very much Rodney for everything, I will see you on the next one!

        -Sam at Executive Realtors- Sam was one of our lunch sponsors. With having him help sponsor, we were able to keep the costs of having the food trucks and their prices low. Although we had different ideas throughout the process of setting up the event, this ultimately was our best option, and having Sam help as lunch sponsor was a great help and much appreciated. I hope everyone enjoyed the assortment of available food that was out there, that was helped made available due to Sam being a Sponsor and offering that service up for us. Thanks again, Sam.

        -Tec Services- Owner Bob and his guys were out there with some supply of VP Racing fuels. They had 5gallon cans of multiple fuels that they brought in from their shop in Bakersfield. Although that drive is not extremely far, it was great to have them offer that service to our participants, and pull away from their shop for the day to make it available for everyone. A few of the participants had contacted them early to make sure they had a 5gallon can reserved, others purchased on site. They were also able to provide fuel for those that were coming in from out of town. This helped to keep some participants from lugging around a bunch fuel on a long drive. It's nice to have local race fuel available, and even better to have that service offered out to our participants. Big thanks again guys, and I hope it helps you sell more race fuel in the future!!!

        -Premier Equipment Rental- Danny and the guys sponsored equipment and services for our event. It was greatly appreciated to be able to have a local company that was willing to do this for the event. They were the ones responsible for our having the porta potty setups, and all of the delineator cones that were lined up along the staging, start, and finish areas, as well as other cones that outlined parts of the runway. We were able to pick up and trailer all of the cones from them, and they actually arranged to have the porta pottys dropped off at the airfield for us. They went above and beyond what I could have expected when I first contacted them, and I will be ensuring we continue a good relationship for future events. The possibilities could be endless with their help!

        -Swanson Photography- Steven was our exclusive event photographer for the event. He had access to areas and vehicles that no one else did. This included early morning shots, interior shots, engine shots and even passenger shots with some of the cars rolling down the runway. He was also the one that shot the photos at the airport for our flyer. He has been taking pictures at our local Cars and Coffee and has a real passion for all things automotive. This helps show through in the pictures he takes and the effort he makes. We hope to see many more pictures from him soon. We had tried to arrange having him in the air also for some aerial photos, but that wasn't able to pan out this time. There's always next time, and he is definitely eager to get any shot he can. Getting him more exposure and having him shoot more events will work in everyone's favor. Thanks for the shots, Steven!

        -German Dreams- Owner George is a big part of Omega and its events. This event was no different in how he went out of his way to help. He let us put a big poster at his shop also, along with flyers. Being a mainstay in the local automotive community, he helped to spread the word to just about everyone that came through the shop. He got some great people to sign up. He was able to help many local people get ready for the event, between overall tech inspections, to getting some fresh turbos put into a car very last minute. I know many of the local guys, especially Euro cars, will be utilizing him from now on. The shop is also the only place I take my Porsche Turbo. The guys do a great job at keeping my car on the road, seeing as how hard I beat on it daily. Case and point, they will be taking a look at it in the morning to see what my current issues are. Possible turbo or pulley issue, along with a front differential issue. These front diffs don't much like power above 600hp/tq or so, and I think mine has had enough. The guys are great and will continue to be an integral part of the tuning, building and/or upkeep ofmy car, and my events in the future. Thanks a ton guys!

        -------------------------ALL OF OUR PARTICIPANTS-------------------------
        This event was for you guys. Car enthusiasts that want to get out and put their foot down, and enjoy the machinery they own and that of others around them. I hope you all sincerely enjoyed it. Everyone seemed to be having a good time throughout the day for the most part. There were some concerns and minor issues along the way, but for the most part I think it was a great success. Some were sidelined early (even before their car hit the strip) and some made it all day. The most passes I have been made aware of yet is 21 (twenty-one) and that was in the beastly 1000 HP GTR. There are ways to make everything better, and I will strive for that in coming events. Many of you guys I met in person at the event and I appreciate your words of gratitude, appreciation and the positive, constructive criticism. I hope you guys will enjoy any coming events we have. Hoping to do another circuit track day, possibly Buttonwillow or even Laguna Seca. Keep in touch, keep an eye on our facebook and the forums and send any feedback of this event. Thanks again for everyone that was there. You guys make these events happen!

        It is March 4th Sticky, The car will not be out there next month. I would be more than happy to race you in Chicago. I highly doubt your car will be ready so it really is not even worth discussing. Furthermore the C BS. Is the slow car, you are going to get raped by the CLK, C B's is not a drag car.

Different days and different conditions.

        He's going to the Coalinga event next month and I'm sure he'd be down for a friendly run. I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in a Stg 3 Weistec vs a Stage 3 ESS M3.
        Our races were Weistec stage 3 vs ESS stage 3 I thought

        Ya I didn't mean it had to be here next month or anything I just meant I intend to attend this next event and I think my setup versus the CLK and C is what people would rather see anyway.

        True but the ESS Stage III setups go to built internals.

        It would take a higher boost stock internal M3 probably around 11 psi to make it heads up.

        No, we just aren't talking about strong built motor setups which was my point.

        That was the ESS-VT2 625 kit (Stage 2 = Intercooled with Stock Internals). There are only 3 ESS Stage 3 cars: IMG (Izzy, most powerful customer VT3 6MT in CT), DLSJ5 (Drew, in CA with DCT) and soon M33 (Zim, DCT in CT, friend of Izzy's). It's been beat to death, but the VT3 is a waste of money. Low-compression build & you only get another ~75-100 WHP. ESS only uses the Vortech V3Si, where at least Gintani swaps out blowers (Vortech T-Trim & the YSI) for some real HP gains over the stock CR kits.
