  • 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?

    Baston Car Show

    By alanrichey,

    The annual Baston Car Show is again being held at Grimsthorpe Castle this year on Sunday 9th July.



    Unfortunately they have decided to charge for all attendees regardless of whether they are classics on not.   They also need your car the have been registered before 2000 if you wish to park in the exhibition area.    Doesn't help me as mine was SVAd in 2008.   Frustrating as it is only 1.5 miles from me 😀  I also don't approve of classic/kit cars being charged unless it is for charity and I can see no sign of that.

    So I shall skip it, but if you fancy going it should be a good show.

    East of England Meets for June

    By alanrichey,

    Now that Malvern has gone it's time to go local again.  And we need to make the most of this weather.   So we don't need a cafe/garden centre anymore, we can start having a picnic again.

    While I was walking round Rutland Water yesterday I found some 'hidden' car parks that are well off the beaten track.   Not only are they quiet, at £3/day they are cheaper than the main ones (£4 for less than 2 hours).   And even better news is that the pay machines are broken so at the moment parking is free  (but bring 3 x £1 coins just in case they fix them over the weekend).

    So let's go for 13:00 on Tuesday 13th for our first summer meet.  Don't forget to bring chairs and food/drink.  I'll provide the weather.

    Here's the location, just take the South road at the Barnsdale crossroads, go past the Hotel, turn left at the bottom and follow the road to the car parks.  Unfortunately there are sleeping policeman on the road but they are relatively gentle.


    Everyone welcome
