June 27 - 28, 2015 – Summit Point Sidecar RON DEE VOO. A number of members of the Internet Sidecar Owners Klub, the High Performance Sidecar Club, the United Sidecar Association, Adventure Rider, and others, have attended this event in the past, first as an organized event known as the ISOK Ron-Dee-Voo, and most recently as an unorganized gathering of like minded sidecarists. It has been a lot of fun to say the least. In the past, some have camped or RV’ed at the race track and some have stayed at the Econo Lodge Motel www.econolodge.com/hotel-winchester-virginia-VA226?promo=gglocal and others in Winchester, Virginia and the surrounding towns.

Members attending have been known to arrive Friday afternoon and leave Monday morning. This is not an organized official rally of any sort, it is just an opportunity to have a good time hanging out with a bunch of sidecar people and support the sidecar racers and what they do. If you have never seen sidecar racing, you’re in for a real treat. If the conditions are favorable, the street legal sidecars have been given the opportunity to do a parade lap on the track as well.

Some sidecarists even come earlier and stay later to take in the attractions in the area. For example visiting the historic areas of Charles Town, WV https://www.google.com/search?q=Charlestown,+WV&source=lnms&tbm=isch... , Harpers Ferry, WV https://www.google.com/search?q=Harpers+Ferry,+WV&source=lnms&tbm=is... , Front Royal, VA http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g57755-Activities-Front_Roya... , etc.
