  • 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?

    Great Weekend

    By apgodden,

    As a new member just wanted to thank everyone involved for organising / running this weekends EOSB.  My eleven year old boy and I had the best time.  The ride out was the highlight with my drifting buddy Andy “hopefully Andy has new underpants on”.......

    Well worth the 6 hour round trip.  Car went well just needed zip ties for front number plate and front wheel arch.



    On our way to EOSB

    We or on our way from salisbury......


    EOSB tickets

    By apgodden,

    I have purchased my tickets for EOSB and have had no conformation or any tickets through the post.

    Will it be ok just to turn up?

    EOSB Run Out

    By Kerry,

    Hopefully the weather will be kind for the EOSB, and on that assumption I have sorted a run out for the Saturday leaving the show ground at 11.00am.

    The route will take us from the show ground with the first stop at the fuel station to allow cars to take on fuel, then out to Wymondham, returning around Rutland Water.

    I have split the details into two, run out and run back, the destination is the tea rooms at Wymondham Mill ( you can go up the mill)where you can get drinks, snacks and hot food from a limited menu choice.

    Alternatively If anyone would rather stop at a Pub you can call into the  Berkeley arms at Wymondham (01572 787587)  and we can regroup for the run back.

    The run is approximately 1hr each way and a total of 70 miles.

    I have print a few maps, and below are links for google maps and also files for Tom Tom navigation thanks to Derek

    By Derek,

    Anyone interested? 

    Ruddington is South of Nottingham on the A60

    Can someone copy and paste this message about Ruddington heritage centre classic vehicle meet 
    Ruddington heritage centre 
    This weekend (bank holiday) we are open Saturday and Sunday and Monday. All Classics will be most welcome from 9am to 5pm. But i will be there from 8am if anyone wants to arrive early. I will be spacing cars 1 metre apart because of the covid. But they normally do that anyway so opening doors don't bang the next car .Free cuppa for anyone bringing a classic.    Cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch etc. Site has been made all covid friendly and the cafe is covid ready and all toilets have been brought up to covid standards.

    William Williams
    By William Williams,

    The above club puts on car meets and I went to one in July at Turweston air field near Brackley  Northants. About 500 cars turned up, kit cars, hot rods, classics, and a Austin 7 special ''kit car' Back in the late fifties buy a seven for £7-50 scrap the body and build a sports car. Go on their site,no need to join them just turn up. Where does the name Locost come from, mine has cost £1,000 just to make it safe for the road.Still it was  a gift with a headache

                                                                                                                    Bill Williams.
