  • 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?


    Surrey and SE area meet - Sunday, July 3rd

    nelmo
    By nelmo,
    As the new Surrey Area Sec, I thought I'd try arrange for a meet.
     
    I'm not a great fan of arranging things weeks in advance so just to let you know that I will be at the Chalet Cafe on Sunday morning (July 3rd) from around 9-10am for a couple of hours (or more if anyone turns up) - if you can find the time, it would be great to see you down there, in your kit or any old car.
     
    The Chalet Cafe address is - Henfield Rd, Horsham RH13 8DU and is a great little cafe for food, although it does shut at 1pm, so don't leave it too late.
     
    I will actually be on a run in the area (starting at 7am!!) with some friends, so if anyone wants to join us on that, do let me know.
     
    Otherwise, I hope to see some of you at the caff... 🙂

    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Monthly Meet 29th June 2022

    richyb66
    By richyb66,

    Next Wednesday (29th) , 6PM onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL

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

    The pub have been turfing us out at 9PM because they're not bothered about a load of old farts who aren't eating so it makes for a short meet if you don't get there early. Therefore I'm saying 6PM onwards in the hope people will try and get there a bit earlier than usual.

    If you've going to attend, post up if you will try and get there at 6PM just so people know whether they'll end up waiting an hour for everyone else. If the earlier time works, we can continue it for other meets. 

    See you there.


    Sad News

    By alanrichey,

    I've just heard that Ivan Farrington (wanderer on the forum) passed away recently.  Ivan was a long time Club member and many of us will remember him well as he made a point of going to every show and Club meet possible, even driving 4-5 hours to get to them.  I was particularly close to him as he was one of the first Superspec owners I encountered, some 9 years ago, and it was the first time I had seen one of the gold 'titanium' finished cars.   We spent lots of time discussing the foibles of the car design and how we were going to fix them.  I will miss his company.

    I am trying to contact his family through the new owner of his car and I will pass on condolences on behalf of the Club.

    Kimbolton country Fare 10th July. Sporting Bears

    Peter Bell
    By Peter Bell,

    I don’t think this has been mentioned yet, I’ve just got notification from them we can have our usual club area for up to 17 cars. Shall I confirm this and get the wrist bands? It’s a great show if you haven’t been before. Entry is £10 a car but it’s all for a good cause.
