  • 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 events, from local area events to national events We have club stands at the National Kit Car Shows at Malvern and Newark 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?

    Kimbolton show July 16th

    Peter Bell
    By Peter Bell,

    Hi folks I know it's a bit early but Sporting Bears have sent me the following information regarding the annual classic car show. We usually have a good showing at this event so can you let me know who is interested at this stage so I can give them rough numbers?

    Thanks Peter

    Kimbolton Country Fayre and Classic Car Show on Sunday 16th July 2023.


    Planning has commenced in earnest and we’re getting ready to welcome back some of your favourite features as well as introducing some more new ones.
    It just wouldn’t be the same without you, our car clubs. You’re such a huge part of our show and we’d love to welcome you back this year.  


    We are delighted to announce that you will no longer need to send out wristbands to your club members – this year will be introducing the ability for your club members to book online, in advance of the show. It our hope that this drastically speeds up your movement as you enter the show through the pay lanes.


    Each car club will be allocated an amount of space that fits in the number of cars you, the organiser, confirms you’d like to bring, and your members can simply book a ticket online, confirming the car club they are part of and show their ticket at the entrance to the show.

    Full details for how to book will be provided closer to the show date to all clubs that confirm they would like to attend the show. Of course, if you have some members who need to pay on the day, they can do so.


    If you would like to book a club stand in this year’s show all I need from you is:

    ·       Confirmation that your club wishes to attend

    ·       How many cars you wish to exhibit


    Unfortunately, for the first time in many years, we’re having to raise the price to enter the show. It will now be £15 per car or £10 per motorcycle. If you book online, there will also be a small booking fee.


    West Mids Monthly Meet 22nd February 2023

    By richyb66,

    Next Wednesday 22nd, 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL.

    I'll aim to be there just after 630pm, generally they're trying to kick us out just after 9pm so if you're coming, don't leave it too late. Also, if you want to eat, book beforehand as they don't normally let people just rock up and eat.

    Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island.

    Everyone welcome. See you there.

Hope you all can make it so we can catch up on what's been happening and plans for the future.

    East of England Meets for January

    By alanrichey,

    After a quiet period over Christmas it's time to get out and about again.   It's really a case of finding a gap in the poor weather at the moment.   So the first meet will be on Wednesday (11th) when it looks OK.   It's still a bit cold for our normal al fresco picnic so we have decided to try the Welland Vale Garden Centre at Uppingham (LE15 9EU) (https://www.wellandvale.co.uk/orchard-cafe).    We'll be there at 12:00 so anyone is welcome to join us.

    I'm aware this won't be ideal for the 'workers' so I will look at doing a weekend one later in the month.




    West Mids post-Christmas meal Wed 25th January 2023

    By richyb66,

    It's nearly that time again, the West Mids post Christmas meal which due to circumstances outside our control, last happened in 2019.

    The date is Wednesday 25th January 2023.

    Same format as previous years and at our usual monthly venue The Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL


    To keep the table bills simple, most people normally opt for the carvery but other options are available:


    Meet up from 7PM onwards and aiming to eat around 7-30.

    I like to give the pub a rough headcount in about a week's time and then give them a more exact numbers a few days before the event so if interested parties can pencil it in their diary and let me know as soon as possible please.

    Everyone welcome (including ladies and kids) and new members (or those thinking of joining) are especially welcome.

    By Webstermick,

    Hi all happy new year. I've finally got my Robin Hood super spec on the road .And I'm wondering if anyone has modified the handbrake position as when I'm strapped in I can't reach it. Any diagrams meauserments and parts used would be very useful  many thanks 

    Family Membership

    By alanrichey,

    Some time ago, for very good reasons, the concept of a family membership was introduced, so that for an additional £5 a second member of a household could be added.  It never really caught on and we had very few takers.  So, in the interest of keeping things simple we have decided to discontinue the option.  However we haven't forgotten the spouses/partners, some of whom are very keen supporters of the Club, so from now on every membership will be assumed to be a 'household' membership and we will continue to welcome families to all our events.
