  • 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 events, from local area events to national events We have club stands at the National Kit Car Shows at Malvern and Newark 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?

    East of England Meets for January

    By alanrichey,

    After a quiet period over Christmas it's time to get out and about again.   It's really a case of finding a gap in the poor weather at the moment.   So the first meet will be on Wednesday (11th) when it looks OK.   It's still a bit cold for our normal al fresco picnic so we have decided to try the Welland Vale Garden Centre at Uppingham (LE15 9EU) (https://www.wellandvale.co.uk/orchard-cafe).    We'll be there at 12:00 so anyone is welcome to join us.

    I'm aware this won't be ideal for the 'workers' so I will look at doing a weekend one later in the month.




    West Mids post-Christmas meal Wed 25th January 2023

    By richyb66,

    It's nearly that time again, the West Mids post Christmas meal which due to circumstances outside our control, last happened in 2019.

    The date is Wednesday 25th January 2023.

    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.

    I like to give the pub a rough headcount in about a week's time and then give them a more exact numbers a few days before the event so if interested parties can pencil it in their diary and let me know as soon as possible please.

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

    Dean and Nicola

    By Webstermick,

    Hi all happy new year. I've finally got my Robin Hood super spec on the road .And I'm wondering if anyone has modified the handbrake position as when I'm strapped in I can't reach it. Any diagrams meauserments and parts used would be very useful  many thanks 

    Family Membership

    By alanrichey,

    Some time ago, for very good reasons, the concept of a family membership was introduced, so that for an additional £5 a second member of a household could be added.  It never really caught on and we had very few takers.  So, in the interest of keeping things simple we have decided to discontinue the option.  However we haven't forgotten the spouses/partners, some of whom are very keen supporters of the Club, so from now on every membership will be assumed to be a 'household' membership and we will continue to welcome families to all our events.

    Forum Updates

    By alanrichey,

    Hi all

    I have recently taken over as Club Webmaster and Forum Maintenance.   I feel that the current design serves us well as regards the forum posts, messaging system, events calendar and community map, but would welcome any suggestions on how it could be improved.  I'm still learning the 'nuts and bolts' of the system so I can't promise anything, but I will listen.

    As my first thought, I would like to see more of the information we know is in previous posts easily accessible from the main page rather than having to search for it.   So you should now see a new Menu item on the blue banner, called "Useful Sites".   If you hover the mouse over it you will see my first attempts at a knowledge base.   Not surprisingly I have started a page for the Superspec owners as that is where my expertise lies.   I have resurrected the old North West web page that was produced years ago by Tim Stott and contains lots of useful informaton.  He has given me permission to update it and link to it from the main page.   Finally I have added some build blogs (including mine 😀) that I know are still current.

    So if anyone has any further suggestions for improvements or knows of any other useful blogs, please let me know.



    North East Area November Meeting Tuesday 29th from 7pm

    By alantoon,

    This will probably be the last meeting of the year, so looking forward to seeing you all at the Church Mouse, Chester Moor, DH23RJ. Hopefully we might get some dry weather as I hope to give the kit a run out.
