Stop the bench racing and start your engines. It's time for another Shift Sector weekend of Side by Side airstrip racing. Cars of varying horsepower and speed capabilities will descend upon the New Coalinga Municipal airport for an all out head to head ½ mile sports car battle. So whether you want to see how your car measures up against the competition or you just want to know how it feels to unleash your car for a half mile of 100% legal pedal to the metal full throttle action, you need to attend the Shift S3ctor Airstrip, Attack.
The event takes place November 10th and 11th. Gates open at 7AM and the mandatory drivers meeting takes place at 8:30AM. The New Coalinga Municipal Airport is located at 27500 West Phelps. Coalinga, CA. The airport is situated right between Los Angeles and the Bay area just west of the 5 freeway.
This Airstrip Attack is a 2 day speed extravaganza and designed to be a 1/2 mile, side by side racing event. Registration opened on September 10th and is already filling quickly. The event is limited to 100 cars per day and is expected to sell out quickly. Once they are full, registration will close and they will begin a wait list.
IPD will be on hand representing a 996 Turbo as well as Turbo Mike's personal 997 GT2 IPD house car, both cars pushing 800 HP. We will also be on hand to lend track support for all the IPD customers pushing maximum velocity.
On Saturday, they will have 2 run groups; a higher HP run group and a lower HP run group. Throughout the day will be open runs; run whoever you want. If desired, an individual can run someone from the other horsepower group, but for the most part your competition will be amongst the cars in your designated group. We can move cars up and down accordingly. At the end of the day on Saturday, they will have a shootout for each run group where winners will be receiving trophies. Following the Unlimited Shootout will be the Tuner Shootout for trophies as well. Each tuner sponsor will elect one of their cars to participate and winners will receive trophies.
Sunday, November 11th they will have open runs all day again, but at the end of the day we will have our first Airstrip Marquee Shootout. The 3 marquee categories are: American Muscle Cars, European Cars (including exotics), and JDM Cars. This shootout will determine the fastest American car, the fastest European car, and the fastest Japanese car. The winner of each marquee will receive a trophy as well.
