  • 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?

    Stoneleigh 2019 News and Discounts!

    By theduck,

    Stoneleigh is nearly here, so some quick details for everyone.

    This year our normal stand is no longer available due to the changes happening for HS2.  As such we will be located on plot 73 which is circled on the below map.  We will have our normal gazebo up and will have our new look flags - they match the new logo - so we should be easy to find!

    As usual, the AGM will be in the Warwick complex - Which is right next to the new stand, so no long walk to get there! - at 4.30pm on the Sunday and we encourage all members to attend.  



    We will also have some club merchandise available:

    New especially for stoneleigh we have mugs £5 each, but when they are gone, they are gone, so be sure to pick one up while stocks last!




    We will also have a number of embroidered caps at a show discounted price of £10 each 




    We will also be offering special discounted membership at the show at the BARGAIN price of £15 for a full 12 months membership with all the normal perks!52917312_367373477181394_3930182022605045760_n.jpg

    and if that wasnt enough, we will also be offering members discount on our Curborough Track day on 30th May at just £40!  For those of you familiar with the Car Throttle website and youtube channel, this is the track they use for all of their project car tests.

    All of these prices are cash only at the show, just speak to a committee member during the weekend.

    *** Hoodstock is back 17th and 18th August ***

    By Andi,

    NOTE.... This was originally posted as 3rd and 4th August but has had to be changed.....

    It will now be 17th and 18th August.



    As an ever more popular event, a date for this wonderful weekend of booze, cars, runs, sun, fun and primitive camping has been set at the beautiful location of Hill Crest Farm  in the rolling Leicestershire countryside

    **** No official charge **** But a whip around for the wonderful Tom the farmer and Wife would be welcome.

    The venue on google maps shows Barsby Lodge Farm . This is NOT the said farm but IS the correct location (Barsby Farm is in fact on the opposite side of the road)

    Google mixed up farm houses. The actual farms name is Hill Crest Farm


    Hill Crest Farm

    South Croxton Road



    LE7 3RX




    Tents can be set up Saturday morning if you like.

    We will be leaving at midday for a countryside run, which will be decided in a couple of weeks (more details to follow).

    Followed by a pub lunch, (I suggest a light one as some struggled with the BBQ only a few hours later and then back to the farm to freshen up and dress for dinner. Which will be a hefty BBQ and much beer.


    Sunday will start whenever people have the strength and another run is on the cards.

    All are welcome and may join in as much, or as little as you want. No pressure.



    If you are standing in front of the farm house, the gate you need is a few yards to the right of it. Follow the yellow arrow below.
