  • 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?

    Lincolnshire Meet for February

    By alanrichey,

    Hope everyone (and their cars) survived the storms.  I lost about 1/3rd of my back garden fence but the parts blown down were rotten anyway and needed replacing.  Overall the February weather been too bad to do much so far but next week is looking reasonable.   The 'retiree' chapter of the Lincolnshire owners (and honorary Lincolnshire owners) will be meeting up for lunch at New Lodge Farm, near Corby (NN17 3DU  https://www.newlodgefarm.co.uk) at 12:00 on Wednesday 23rd.   Some of you will know it as the midpoint break on the Stilton Cheese Run.

    Any other retirees or self employed or unemployed....  are welcome to join us, and my offer to organise a weekend event for the 'real workers' among you still stands 🙂

    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Monthly Meet 23rd February 2022

    By richyb66,

    I was going to reschedule our post Christmas meal for this month but I'm not still confident that the venue can cope with 30+ of us turning up at the same time and eating so February's meet will just be a normal one (drinks and banter). That said, food is still available if people want to make their own booking for a smaller group.

    Meet 7PM 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 yards from the island.

    Surrey and surrounding areas

    By nelmo,

    To anyone in Surrey and surrounding counties, I would like to start up a WhatsApp/SMS group for anyone interested in an occasional run out.

    I normally go for a short blast most weekends (I'm based in Reigate, Surrey) and it would be nice to meet up or tag along in convoy with anyone who is free.

    I'm not much of a planner - if the weather is looking to be reasonable a couple of days before  and I've got free time, I'll just head off in a vague direction, usually via a cafe of some sort (my current favourite is the Chalet). I am not a very early riser, normally heading out between 8 - 9am, back by 11-12.

    If this sounds like you, please PM or email (magazine@rhocar.org) your mobile number and I'll add you to the group (please specify if you prefer text or WhatsApp). I'll send out messages on WhatsApp/text if I'm going out - there is no pressure to join me, feel free to ignore them completely 😉

    I might put posts up on here but I often make the decision on Saturday to go on Sunday and I realise most people don't look at the forum that often.

    Hope to see some of you in the future...

    (PS: just snapped my throttle cable yesterday, so won't be out for a couple of weeks anyway).
