  • 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?

    Revised Area Secretary System

    By alanrichey,

    Many of you will have noticed in the Area Secretary section of the Magazine that the majority of the posts remain unfilled.  The statistics tell a sorry tale.  Of the 23 areas only 7 have a functioning Secretary and of those, 3 of us are dual-hatted, also filling posts on the Committee.   So that means out of a membership of about 380, a mere 9 people are helping to run the Club.   And despite numerous requests for volunteers to fill the positions, only one person responded.

    The Club cannot continue with this situation, so we are proposing to make some major changes.   We still believe the Area Secretary system is essential, providing a link for members to the Committee and organising local events.  However, as it is obvious we will never get enough people to fill the 23 Area Secretary posts we have decided to simplify the whole system.  So in the future, rather than having areas based on counties we are going to go for simple geographic areas, breaking the UK up into 11 areas.   This map shows the new areas and their new secretaries, including their forum name:


    These are defined as:

    Scotland                         Presently Unfilled
    North East & Borders     Alan (alantoon)

    North West                     Darrell (Darrell)
    Yorkshire/Lincs              Andrew (Grim)
    Presently Unfilled
    West Midlands               Richard  (richyb66)
    Central Midlands             Andi  (Andi)
    East Midlands                  Alan  (alanrichey)
    South West                             
    Presently Unfilled
    South Central                   Tony (apgodden)
    London & South East       Neil  (nelmo)

    So now we have set up a new structure it is up to you, the members and community users, to make it work.  The limitations of GDPR prevent us from giving your details to the Area Secretaries so it is up to you to notify them of your intentions.   If you would like to be involved in meeting up with other owners in your area then you have 2 choices.   First, add your location to the forum Member Map which will confirm you are happy for your location to be shared and for the Secretary to contact you.  Secondly, notify your local Secretary and give them permission to pass your username and town to others on their list.   If you feel strongly that you do not want to be involved, then you can also tell them, although if they get no message from you they will assume you are not interested.   If you cannot work out who is your best secretary message me on the forum system and we can discuss it.

    Al (Membership Secretary)

    SE meet-up, July 30th

    By nelmo,


    Following on from our inaugural SE meet at the Chalet cafe a week or 3 ago, Nigel has kindly offered his house as the location for our second meeting. I say his house but it sounds more like a country estate (he's got his own fishing lake!) 🙂 and he is happy to accommodate us all.

    Apart from some lovely roads in his neck of the woods, he is also bribing us with drinks and bacon butties, so no-brainer for me 😉

    Date: Saturday, July 30th
    Time: From 10am until we've run out of bacon...
    Address: Robertsbridge, TN32 5EU

    I will be sorting out a route from Reigate/Horsham to Robertsbridge so if anyone wants to join me, please let me know and we can arrange to meet somewhere along the line.

    Hope to see some of you there...

    The End Of Season Bash 2022 is on Friday 2nd September to Sunday 4th at Market Harbour Show Ground LE16 7QB

    September may feel a long way away but we need your help and commitment to get your tickets booked as soon as possible.  This really helps with the organisation and logistics of this event. 

    The Committee and non committee members work so hard on this event behind the scenes and we need more people to turn up to ensure that this event can carry on year after year.

    The End of Season Bash itself is a great event with marquee, bouncy castles, live band, bar, food van, Saturday ride out and loads of entertainment. Day tickets and camping tickets available.

    Even if you are not a member of our club and still at the building stage of your car this event would be so beneficial to you..... The amount of experienced people who have already built their own cars and are always more than willing to help and advised. Just seeing the cars and meeting people with same interest we give you the push to get your cars finished.  Who knows you could be with us September 2023 in your finished car.....

    I urge you to join us please book your tickets on the following link.



    End of Season Bash 2022 - RHOCAR - The UK Kit Car Club

    Lincolnshire Meets for July

    By alanrichey,

    Even though we have a fairly busy month already, with the Kimbolton Show on the 10th and Newark on the 23/24th, we can't waste this glorious weather.    So initially, we are planning to meet up on Wednesday the 13th.

    Haven't decided on a location yet, that will depend on who is going to attend.  A usual I will try and aim we all get a 30-50 min drive to somewhere with a decent car park and room for a picnic.   Any suggestions always welcome.
