  • 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?

    North East Area Meeting 25th September

    By alantoon,

    Due to holidays and other commitments the bulk of the usual members attending are unable to make the meeting this month, so it would seem sensible to cancel the meeting for this date and make a special effort to attend the the monthly meeting at the Old Farmhouse, Darlington on the 10th of October.

    Allan Royds
    By Allan Royds,

    I saw the above noted in the latest edition of our excelent magazine, Myself and a couple of friends have attended the restoration show at the NEC,

    but the cost increases are making it a very expensive day out.

    So is this a new show or is it somthing that we just have not heard about before,  And is it worth neck end of 400 mile and about 7 hours drive,

    So if you have been or heard of it can you post your recollections' of the last one you visited.

    Thanks a lot regards

    Corby Glen Sheep Fair Sunday 6th October 2019

    By alanrichey,

    We have our usual invitation to display our cars at the 781st Sheep Fair at Corby Glen (https://www.sheepfair.co.uk/) on Sunday 6th October.   The fair runs from 10:00-16:00.  I will probably park up about 09:30 (I have to drive only 1.5 miles 😀 ) but you can pitch up whenever you like and leave whenever you like.

    For those who have not been before it is an old-style village fair with plenty of stalls, entertainment and in this case a sheep demonstration.  And a nice collection of cars & bikes.  A nice relaxed way to spend a Sunday.

    If anyone who has not been before wishes to attend, let me know and I will let you know the details.  For those who have been before I will be at the usual place near the war memorial.
