  • 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?

    Site Access Issues

    By Mat-Moo,

    As you have noticed, there has been a few hours of downtime on this site. Not only this site, my whole server and the data centre it is hosted at :( Seems as though they have been the target of a very large DDoS attack (roughly 400,000 packets a second). They do have in place some anti-DDos equipment, howver these packets where in a strange format, causing them not to be recognised and the packets to casue issues. I hope it's sorted now, and sorry for the delays!

    Thames Valley Treasure Hunt May 14th

    By john,

    :o :o We have an event coming up on MAY 14th, so keep those cars roadworthy and make a date for the



    This is a day out for everyone. :)

    Created by Alan Saunders specifically for this Thames Valley Hoods day out, the hunt is for a collection of witty and criptic clues all with a motoring theme for you to spot and collect along a prescribed country drive, for which you will be given course notes on arrival at the start venue.

    At set intervals, and not against the clock ! :( , you will set off along the route collecting and noting down your answers.

    There is a prize for the most correct observations when the scores are totted up at the finish venue ( The Pub with No Name ).

    A small entry fee per car full will pay for the prize.


    Refreshments available at the start and finish venues.

    Bring any car, and as many occupants as you wish. I get a feeling those with people carriers will have an advantage of more eyes and ideas flowing.

    ( Grandma's are pretty handy with the criptic stuff , must be all the crosswords etc. )


    Alan has put all his notes and locations on his website for you to view , bar of course the clues, which you will have to wait for on the day.

    You can view them here......... www.promec-services.co.uk/hoods/paperchase.htm



    I hope lots of you can make this a really good event , and our thanks should go to Alan who has been concocting this jaunt solely for your enjoyment, for some time now.


    Please let me know by return email, to give us some idea of numbers .


    Any questions, please let me know. -_-



    See you soon B)

    By red7,

    It's that time of the year again when we make our plans to attend Barbon Hill Climb. Last year we camped in Dent a short drive from the Hill Climb Venue. This year I'm investigating hiring a cottage or large caravan as well as the camping option.

    We will set off from the North East on Friday night, the hill climb is on Saturday afternoon and make our way back to the North East on Sunday.


    If anyone out there is interested in coming along please drop me a PM.
