2014 Summit Point Sidecar RON DEE VOO

August 22 – 25, 2014 – 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 http://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&sa=X&ei=VAX5UsvHH4bH0QGzn4CgCQ&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAg&biw=1527&bih=876 , Harpers Ferry, WV https://www.google.com/search?q=Harpers+Ferry,+WV&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=5AP5Uq7iOuTq0wGoloGwAQ&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg&biw=1527&bih=876 , Front Royal, VA http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g57755-Activities-Front_Royal_Virginia.html , etc.

Any idea when the parade lap for the street legal sidecars will be?

The sidecar racers are on site, let the fun begin. I'm on my way. Bruce.

Sorry I missed this event (had a horrible migraine weekend). Mr Paul Browne did a good job informing and organizing this impromptu gathering. Since Mr Browne and I live so close I think we need to work on making this a bigger and better Sidecar gathering . A lot of these racers come down from Canada and New England areas for this race and I know we can get more spectators and fans to cheer these guys on. Hop[e to see lots more sidecars in the camping and fans side next year.
