  • 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?

    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Xmas Meal Wed 30th January 2019

    By richyb66,

    It's nearly that time again, the Warks, Worcs, West Mids post Christmas meal.

    Same format as previous years and at our usual monthly venue The Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL


    To keep the table bills simple, most people normally opt for the carvery but other options are available:


    Meet up from 7PM onwards and aiming to eat around 7-30 but latecomers can still get fed if they can't get there that early. I like to give the pub a better idea of the headcount a few days before the event so if interested parties let me know, I'll start a list and I'll make a booking for 25 people to get things rolling. If we get more people we'll either squeeze up a bit or take up more of the main dining area.

    Everyone welcome (including ladies and kids) and new members (or those thinking of joining) are especially welcome.


    Richard and Jackie

    Stuart and Sarah

    Steve, Rosemary, Rebecca, Geoff  and Pat.

    Dean and Nicola

    Steve, Dee and Paige

    Andi, Clare and Jasper

    Keith and Becky

    Gaz and Carol

    Vic and Rita, Graham and Dot.

    2019 Membership renewals

    By theduck,

    Just a reminder that membership renewals are now due and can be purchased by returning the form and payment in the magazine or by purchasing online at this link https://www.rhocar.org/index.php?/subscriptions/


    If you have purchased your membership since we upgraded the forum then you already have a rolling 12 monthly membership and so don't need to do anything.

    I will be downgrading members who have not renewed on Friday.
