Short Outage 24/05/18

24 May 2018 - 09:42 AM

An outage of the rhocar site was reported to me today at 10:21am.


Investigation into the outage began immediately and the site was back up at 10:35am.


Exact cause of the outage is currently unknown but was the result of part of the background services crashing.



UPDATE:  After the site came back up it became apparent there were other related issues.  These have now also been repaired and we will continue to monitor for further issues.

Emissions Proposals For Kit Cars Scrapped!

01 May 2018 - 09:14 AM

From Complete Kit Car on Facebook


We've just received a call from the Department for Transport confirming that they will not proceed with the part of the emissions regulation proposals that affected kit cars. There were over 2000 responses to the consultation.

A Department for Transport spokesperson said:

“The UK’s specialist vehicle industry is thriving – it creates jobs and gives enjoyment to many, with products exported all over the world.

“We are grateful to the over 2000 kit and replica car enthusiasts, manufacturers and suppliers who took part in this consultation. Following their responses, we have decided that there will be no changes to the current MOT–style testing of kit car emissions.”
