  • 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 annual national Meet! 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 such as with 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?

    Andy Spencer
    By Andy Spencer,

    Just a reminder of the Leicestershire area meeting this Wednesday at the Waterside Inn, Mountsorrel, Leics, 7.30pm onwards.

    Unfortunately (for the second month running...sorry) I won't be there, my new job is taking me all over the country and I'm away on the South Coast Weds night.

    We'll have to get some weekend runs sorted as I tend to be around then.

    The place to be in yer hood this Sunday June 11th is with The Thames Valley Group doing a run over the Chiltern Hills, taking in the famous Aston Hill, along a challenging route with three notably famous steep hill climbs to challenge you and the car.

    Hackers And The Like

    By Mat-Moo,

    Well yet again I've had another of my forums hacked (not this one) and a viri added to it alongside sending an email to 250 of my users! This is just a caution, but PLEASE make sure you have a fully uptodate virus detection system running on your PC (I can highly reccomend AVG at http://www.grisoft.com which is FREE for personal use), and also if you get any emails that have .EXE files in them - delete at once unless you are 10000000% sure of what it is.


    Take care!


    Forum upgrade soon - In fact I've been looking at the new phpBB3 version http://communitynew.rhocar.org/phpBB2/ and other forum software to bring us uptodate (SMF IPB etc.)
