  • Welcome to The UK Kit Car Club

    The aim of the club is to help and support members during the build (and inevitable ongoing maintenance and modification) as well as to plan and organise events throughout the year. The Club attends the major kit car shows throughout the year providing a stand with tea and coffee, plus a BBQ with food for members. You'll be warmly received, especially if you bring more food and drink !! We also have stands at many other shows all around the country.

    It's not just shows though, our active area secretaries and members regularly arrange run outs and longer trips to such places as Le Mans, Wales and Scotland, plus the annual club camping weekend and the traditional “end of season” get together. Keep an eye on the events section of the forum for news and details of upcoming events.

    The Club also produces four magazines a year, exclusively for club members, filled with all manner of things club or motoring related, and members can get their own articles published in it as well if they wish.

    The Club is an independent organisation, and although we have our roots as the Robin Hood Owners Club and Register (RHOCaR), we are very much a club for all makes and model of kit car, so anyone can be a "Hoody", as it's 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 find that the discount is more than the club membership fee. Membership also gets you full access to the forum, and a variety of other discounts such as with Euro Car Parts. You'll also find other members are willing to go well above and beyond for any other member they see is in need of help !

    So whether you own a Robin Hood, a GBS Zero, a Locost, an MK, a Westfield, a Caterham, (or any of the many other types of kit car), everyone can benefit from joining, so what are you waiting for ?

    By richyb66,


    Next Wednesday 29th, 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL.

    Generally they're trying to kick us out just after 930pm so if you're coming, don't leave it too late. Also, if you want to eat, book beforehand as they don't normally let people just rock up and eat.

    Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island.

    Everyone welcome. See you there.

    Magazine & AGM

    By Foz,

    By now all members who opted to have electronic magazine delivery should have received a "pdf" copy, and all others should have received a hard copy, of the Spring 2024 magazine.

    If anyone has not received a copy please let myself or Alan Richey know and we'll try to sort it out for you.

    We now have just over 2 weeks before the AGM is held at the National Kit Car Show at Malvern (Sat 1st June) and hopefully we'll see lots of you there.  If you wish to have anything discussed, or would like to volunteer as Events Secretary, please follow the instructions in the magazine.


    Track day

    By philshelton,

    Some time ago when was involved as events sec a club track day was asked about. At the time the cost was massive , around the £8k mark. I now notice that Blyton park do a club track day. So i fired off a email to enquire and was surprised at the price. they basically limit the track to 6 cars and do about 7 lap sessions they have cut the cost by using cctv and less marshals. I enquired for 24 cars latter part of the year (sept), the price they came back with was £2950+vat so £3540 that works out at £147.50 per car if 24 cars. what are peoples thoughts?   

    Leicestershire area meet

    By philshelton,

    Leicestershire area meet 15th May

    Dog and Gun Keyham. 6.30ish onwards, we had reserved parking last month long the bottom of the carpark. 

    Castle Bytham Summer Fair

    By alanrichey,

    Old timers amonst us will remember we regularly took our cars to this show (easy for me as it is only 3 miles away 😀).   But about 3 years ago a brand new Committee was formed and they didn't show any interest in cars displaying.    I have just been contacted by the previous organiser who said they have seen the error of their ways and now wanted cars to display.

    It's on Sunday 23rd June (Its actually all weekend but the Saturday is primarily a music festival).  The website is https://midsummerfestival.co.uk/   The postcode is NG33 4SB.

    It's a real old style village fair and a nice day out.

    If anyone fancies going please let me know.


    National Kit Car Show, Malvern Showground, 1-2 June 2024

    By alanrichey,

    Time is fast approaching.   Remember there are now only 2 dedicated kit car shows, this one and Newark.   So time to make an effort and come along.   The website is at https://www.visitthemalverns.org/event/national-kit-car-show-2/

    The parking plan is now available and is shown below.   Our Club Stand is right in the middle and similar to last year.   We are planning to have the AGM in a room in the exhibition Hall at 15:00  (still to be confirmed).  This should allow even the far-flung members to come for the day and still get home before dark.

    For the campers the camping area is on the right.

    See you all there


    Kit car show Three counties Showground.

    Allan Royds
    By Allan Royds,

    I missed last year due to a previously booked event, Question is can we arrive on Friday afternoon to camp?. If we can is

    there a particular place that we would all congregate at. Can't seem to find a map of the camping area on the organisers site.

    Hope that some one can help me out, going down on Friday as travelling from Durham via the M6.

    so see you all there.

    Regards Allan
