    • - 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

        In n Out is pretty good, but it does not replace a bone-in New York steak!! Doesn't Bakersfield have some great steak restaurants? Much better conversation at a dining table than a fast food spot.

        there's some good steaks around town. There is a Black Angus and a Hungry Hunter near a grouping of hotels that some may be at. There are options Click here to enlarge

        While I agree that sitting down with a group of guys for a good steak would be nice....I doubt with a party of this size it would be possible unless of course we take over an entire restaurant and then everyone is at different tables, etc...just not very conducive to hanging out.
        On the other hand....The In & Out idea is actually a good one. Perhaps you could coordinate so that everyone could take over an In & Out for the evening, park all the cars, hang out an just have some burgers. In & Out is synonymous with cars, even their tee shirts feature cool old muscle cars...having a big meet and greet/burger dinner while everyone walks around and checks out the cars I think sounds cool and super casual.

        You guys are not going to find any "bone in" anything out in Bakersfield...that'll be later at the strip joint Click here to enlarge
        I kid....
        Check out the hungry hunter menu:

        http://www.hungryhuntersteakhouse.co...inner_2012.pdf

        I'm sure the prime rib is pretty good.

        Personally, I vote for a meeting at In & Out, burgers and beer followed by the strip joint. If you guys want a good steak, head back my way after the day and we'll do Saturday night at Mastro's Penthouse Click here to enlarge

        Another Bakersfield guy checking in here. This is shaping up to be an awesome event, Tony! I hope to make it but work may get in the way. I will be flying in from Houston that Friday afternoon, so we'll see. Any chance I could buy a spectator spot on somebody's crew that has room in case I can't bring the car out?

        If anyone has reservations as far as parking their cars at their hotel, I have room for 8-10 cars in my gated yard/shop, so no worries as far as thefts/break-ins. Just send a PM if interested, or find me at the dinner meet the night before the event.

        Very generous of you, welcome. I think in exchange for allowing guys to park and store their things I would be more than happy to have you be part of my "crew" so to speak.
