  • Welcome to RHOCaR - The UK Kit Car Club

    The aim of the club is to help and support members during the build (and inevitable ongoing maintenance and modification) 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 it's 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 from joining, so what are you waiting for?

    By Guest RHSC,

    We have been looking at the various comments on our lightweight and the issue of sva

    Our lightweight demonstrater was succesfully sva tested prior to official launch of the car,with a car properly approved we started selling the kit.We have seen a number of Lightweights built and registered all over the world

    Our car has been recently striped down for examination and NO PROBLEMS WERE ENCOUNTERED this car has been used on track days,on the road all year and if you remember used by the press (including a trip to France)


    We have just re-tested our own car again (this week) succesfully!


    We all know the SVA centres vary enourmously from region to region some things they pass in one station sometimes same fail in others

    It apperars the kit car industry suffers from these inconsistancies and interpritations through no fault of their own
