  • 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?

    South Yorkshire/Derbyshire to Stoneleigh

    By HAWKNORTH,

    How about 11.30 Saturday morning at Trowell services M1 for the meet up for the run down to Stoneleigh. All welcome.


    Staffordshire Area Meet Monday 6th May 2019

    Andi
    By Andi,

    This will be at the George and Dragon Meaford Rd, Meaford, Stone ST15 0PX starting at 19.30

    Obviously this is on the same day as Stoneleigh ends but I wanted to keep the date the same as usual. Besides I will need weaning off the Stoneleigh weekend madness bit by bit.

    There will be a classic car event on at the same time so lots to look at. 

    I`ll be there in the kit. Unless it`s a wash out 

    All welcome, kits or not.

    Hope to see you there.

    Andi
