  • 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?

    Staff's Area Christmas Meal

    By stu205,

    Right you lot its that time of year!!!


    Have now sorted booking a large table for a meal at the Darlaston Inn (the usual meeting place) for a very reasonable £20 for 2 people! (see attached) the plan is to have a sit down meal on Saturday the 2nd of December starting at approx 7.30-8 and then for anyone who wants to join in theres a bit of a pub crawl round Stone until the very early hours which WILL get messy! and as such no flash photography will be allowed! :-P


    So far I have had about 20 names so it has all the signs of a darn good night out, however the Darlaston do want a deposit which Im happy to pay but what I now is a DEFINITE list of people who are going as I dont want to put a deposit down for you only to be out of pocket on the night so please email names and any +1's only if you are DEFINITELY going and we can get it booked!


    Also for anyone traveling further a field there are rooms for £26 at the Travelodge see link below

    Lincolnshire Area Meet

    Nw Winter Run

    By Mitch,



    Hi everyone, I have been nominated to organise a “get together” ,so I have come up with a Treasure Hunt on Saturday 18th November. It would start at 11 am to 12 noon at Southport and would be around that area, with the finish also being in Southport.




    The treasure hunt would be organised in the following way –




    Each car would have a copy of an ordnance survey map provided by me, of the area with the locations of the clues marked on it and you would have to give the answers to the clues.




    The person with the most points would win. In the event of a tie, the one with the lowest mileage and highest points would win.




    There would be absolutely no time penalties or gains so there would be no point in rushing around, there would be plenty of time to stop at any point and look around at your leisure.




    I envisage that the treasure hunt will take 2 – 3 hours and would be finishing at a pub in Southport where we can have a bar meal, so everyone would need to be back around 4 p.m as we need to keep in mind that it will be getting dusk at that time.




    I need to know rough numbers of people that may want bar meals, so can you please reply a.s.a.p. to let me know if you are coming and how many people you are bringing. If you turn up on the day without contacting me, we will just have to take a chance at the pub and see if they can fix up any extras! The bar meals range from £4 to whatever you wish to pay.




    I will not need a deposit for the pub as it will be on a “pay for what you want” basis.




    Come in your tin-tops or anything you want, just turn up so we can have a pleasant afternoon together before the Winter really sets in!.
