  • Welcome to 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 organise events throughout the year. The Club attends the major kit car shows throughout the year providing a stand with tea and coffee, plus a BBQ with food for members. You'll be warmly received, especially if you bring more food and drink !! We also have stands at many other shows all around the country.

    It's not just shows though, our active area secretaries and members regularly arrange run outs and longer trips to such places as Le Mans, Wales and Scotland, plus the annual club camping weekend and the traditional “end of season” get together. Keep an eye on the events section of the forum for news and details of upcoming events.

    The Club also produces four magazines a year, exclusively for club members, filled with all manner of things club or motoring related, and members can get their own articles published in it as well if they wish.

    The Club is an independent organisation, and although we have our roots as the Robin Hood Owners Club and Register (RHOCaR), 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 find that the discount is more than the club membership fee. Membership also gets you full access to the forum, and a 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 any other member they see is in need of help !

    So whether you own a Robin Hood, a GBS Zero, a Locost, an MK, a Westfield, a Caterham, (or any of the many other types of kit car), everyone can benefit from joining, so what are you waiting for ?

    Lincolnshire Area Meet

    Guest Ian & Carole
    By Guest Ian & Carole,

    Hi guys & girls


    In an attempt to get Lincolnshire Hoods together, myself, aided by my luverly :wub: assistant William Brown will be sat in Woodcock's hostelry on Tuesday 7/11/2006 at 20.00 hrs.


    Woodcocks is situated about 4miles southeast of Lincoln on the A57.



    The Woodcocks

    Burton Lane End, Saxilby Rd,



    LN1 2BE.



    All welcome.


    My (our) plan is to meet on the first Tuesday of the month for a chat.


    See how it goes and then move on to run outs next summer if there is enough interest.

    (oh yes and Bill & Joey)

    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!.

    Leicestershire Area Meeting

    Andy Spencer
    By Andy Spencer,

    Hi All

    The usual Leicestershire meet this Wednesday will NOT be taking place at the Waterside in Mountsorrel. The 'usual' crowd is going to a bit of a 'last minute' organised Karting session. I'll do a round email to other Leics members but if you were thinking of coming as a non member or for the first time, our next meet there will be the last Wednesday of November.
