  • 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?

    Midlands Area run out - Sunday 30th December

    By richyb66,

    As the weather is mild at the moment, I thought about having a run out this Sunday. Mostly it's a chance to catch up and have a chat so don't feel obliged to come in a kit - tin tops are fine.

    Thinking of meeting at the Malt Shovel (Toby Carvery Stonebridge Coventry) for a leisurely breakfast from 10AM onwards and then head off around 11AM. I'm thinking we could head up to Carsington Water near Ashbourne for a cuppa and then head back via the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas.

    Hi Not sure if anyone will turn up for the meeting at the Church Mouse, Waldridge  Chester le Street DH23RJ on Boxing day so I am going to use the pub as a stopping off point, as it is quite a good forecast so I am going to have a bit of a run-out. I will be there at about 7-30 and i will stay for a hour to see if anyone turns up. If you can't make it all the best to you all and we will meet up at the Jan. meeting.  Alan

    Goodbye Leicestershire

    By Andi,

    It is with great regret that I have to leave my brothers and sisters in the leics and surrounding areas. I have had a fantastic time and met some truly weird, wonderful, educated, amazing, talented and friendliest folk one could ever wish to meet. 

    Thank you all for turning up to the Leicester kitmas meal tonight and thanks for the gifts. 

    I have watched our local club grow from strength to strength over the years which is in contrast to the national declining trend in the kit world, and I hope it continues to do so.

    We have a strong and capable new rep called Kerry (Yaaaaay) at the helm and he will "rock da club" for future events. 

    I will still turn up for runs and events as I'm only moving to staffs. 

    If anyone is thinking of buying or building a kit in the leics area, then join the club. These guys will be round to help or offer advice at the drop of a hat. 

    Cheers all

    By theduck,

    Given we are now in December I have activated, and set to be the default, our Christmas theme for the website, I hope you like it 😁

    If it is not for you, scroll to the bottom of the page, select “Theme” and you can set pack to the normal default or one of the dark themes and the forum will remember your personal setting. We will also automatically set back to the normal theme after Christmas. 


    Oh and if you are on mobile, be sure to check it out on a computer for the full effect!
