  • 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?

    Midlands Autofest 19th to 21st April 2019

    By richyb66,

    Another new event that Zach has made me aware of and at a familiar venue - Stoneleigh.


    Midlands Autofest offers an amazing day out for all the Family with children going FREE.

     Held over two days the show gives you chance to not only take in some mind-blowing cars, but also really get into the spirit of the lifestyle and culture that surrounds them; the music, the fashion and the food. With live action both on and off stage Saturday and Sunday.

    Where else will you find Drifting Demonstrations or your chance to have a ride in one of these top competition Drift Cars sliding their way around the Live Action Arena alongside two full on Live stages, the Live Bands Stage and the DJ & competition stage. Plus, Superbike Stunt Show Arena, BMX Indoor Arena, Trade Stands and much more.  You won’t, is the simple answer…,

    All this offered alongside American Lowrider Cars and the world famous, Wall of Death performing their gravity deifying tricks. 

    With so much of the show under cover over 4 indoor halls & loads of things for the kids to do to.............Bouncy Castles, Face painting and Mini Movie Truck Rides and over 100 trade stalls to look around too this is one event you can’t afford to miss.....!

    This is 2 weeks before the Kit Car Show and £20 on the day to get in (no wonder that can afford to let kids in free) so I don't know if there will be many takers but I'll post it up and see what response there is.
