  • Welcome to RHOCaR - The UK Kit Car Club

    The aim of the club is to help and support members during the build (and inevitable on going maintenance and modifcation) as well as to plan and organize a wide range of social and sporting events, from local area events to our national End of Year Bash! We have one of, if not the largest club stand at the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh each year, and we definitely serve the best burgers! We also have stands at many other shows throughout the year all around the country. It's not just shows though, our active area secretaries and members arrange regular run outs and even longer trips including the ever popular Wales and Scotland trips.

    The Club produces four magazines a year, exclusively for club members. It is packed with news, events, articles, technical features and irreverent cartoons. The Club is an independent organisation, and although we have our roots as the Robin Hood Owners Club and Register, we are very much a club for all makes and model of kit car, so anyone can be a "Hoody", as its all about the state of mind, not the car you drive!

    Being a member of The UK Kit Car Club has many benefits above those already mentioned. Members benefit from discounted insurance with nearly all of the specialist kit car insurers, and often get a discount that is more than the membership fee itself. Membership also gets you full access to the forum, and a wide variety of other discounts, including discounts at Euro Car Parts. You'll also find other members are willing to go well above and beyond for anyone they see is in need of help, as long as they too are a member!

    So whether you own a Robin Hood, a GBS Zero, a Locost, an MK, a Westfield or a Caterham, all can benefit form joining, so what are you waiting for?

    London to Brighton Run 2019 memory

    By alanh65,

    Last year, my son who lives/works in London expressed an interest in participating in the London to Brighton Run.

    My father, who passed away many years back, was brought up in London and then his family moved down to Brighton where he became a member of 'Brighton Shiverers'  ... back in the day, and where he was schooled. It seemed an appropriate opportunity to mark the fact that that 'history' led to our existence ... so to speak.

    Not the most exciting of drives for a hoodie but we had a great time, I drove down, my son drove back and we spent the evening in London celebrating.

    Will the event ever be the same again? With London's Emissions Zone expanding , Brighton's frontage being (temporarily?) pedestrianised and Covid ???? I am pleased that we chose to enter last year. Value for money .... well, questionable. Good day ... yes. Do it again .. unlikely to be honest - but nice to have experienced it.

    Evidence of the event ( acquired the photos without the need to pay the extortionate fee asked for them!)

    Leicester Area Meeting 21st October Cancelled

    By Kerry,

    Sorry, but due to the current Covid-19 situation unfortunately the area meeting must be cancelled.

    It is unlikely we will be able to hold a meeting for some time, but I will continue to monitor the situation and post each month with an update.  

    We are in Complete kit car magazine

    By Andi,

    I don't have a copy myself, but I have seen a post on Facebook showing the end of season bash event with lots of photos


    Staffordshire October area meet CANCELLED

    By Andi,

    There will be no October meet, which would have been this coming Thursday.

    But alas the whole covid thing has put a stop to that. It has taken ages to get this thing finally moving and with decent numbers attending too.

    Anyway, that`s that for now and watch this space for news of the next meeting.

    I would love to find anyone in the Norfolk area that could take a look at it with me and chuck some pointers out and a nod to any good garages to take them too for certain works, I can't pull on my father experience as I'm doing this to unveil to him once finished
