Supercars meet tuners at half-mile airstrip event

Omega Motorsports
Jan 6, 2015

One of the more interesting aspects of checking out any airstrip-based top speed event - be it No Fly Zone (NFZ) or any of the others that are out there - is seeing exactly what shows up. With lots of room to stretch out a car's legs at these things and zero pressure to actually "compete" or even push all that hard, you get some pretty unorthodox entries, from the super baller and super built to the super budget.

It was a rainbow of flavors at the last NFZ, staged December 13 and 14 at the Gila Bend Municipal Airport in Arizona, southwest of Phoenix. There were cars we expected - EVO, GT-R, M3/M4, Supra - and then cars we didn't - like that Toyota mini-truck (the MR2 was a bit of a wild card, too).

Along with the BMW M, the event hosted a handful of Mercedes-Benz C63 in addition to other performance Euros. Corvette and Mustang numbers were high among domestics, but arguably the cars most people want to see opened up are the exotics and supercars, of which there were plenty at NFZ AZ: 996/997/991, Continental GT, F430, 458, Gallardo, Huracan, MP4-12C - hell, we even had a Veyron take a few passes.

For the price of registration everyone received a full weekend of 1/2-mile, side-by-side roll racing on 5200 feet of runway. There were no run groups, no pairings; everyone just queued up, waited their turn, and when they got the signal, mashed the throttle and kept the car pointed straight. It was another gangbusters event; check out the gallery to see what you missed.
