  • 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?

    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Monthly Meet Wed 29th July 2020

    By richyb66,

    Tonight I went over to our normal venue The Malt Shovel to see what's happening there. They are open but unfortunately are only serving drinks with food and only taking bookings if you want to eat. 

    I don't think it would be practical to have the meeting there at the moment given the numbers that might attend, the need to maintain small groups (max 6) and the fact that not everyone will want to eat.



    South Yorkshireish Area Meet August

    By Grim,

    Now the pubs are back open (including monk's bridge farm), do we want to resume meets?

    The august meet would be due on Wednesday the 5th. Unfortunately I'm not able to make this as i'm on holiday that week.

    Weather permitting, it might be advisable to meet up outside. What are people's thoughts?

    Newark Kit Car Show

    By Derek,

    Just picked up from FB

    18/06/2020 COVID-19 UPDATE: 

    It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the Newark Kit Car Show in July this year. For those of you who have purchased tickets for this show, your ticket will be valid for the 2021 show (dates to be confirmed). To avoid possible ticket price increases next year, and to save us the cost of postage and reprinting tickets, we ask that you keep your ticket and use it for the 2021 show. By retaining your ticket for use in 2021 you will be helping us to continue hosting shows in 2021 following what has been a difficult time for many businesses due to Covid-19. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to welcoming you back to the Newark Kit Car Show next year.

    As our office is still closed, we are unable to contact ticket holders individually as we do not have access to the database. If you have any queries, our preferred method of contact is email (grosvenorshows@btconnect.com). 

    We are currently still planning to hold the Stoneleigh Kit Car Show in August (29 – 30 August 2020). We will continue to follow updates from the government regarding the Coronavirus and will update you on our website and Facebook page @Grosvenor where necessary. 

    Kind regards,

    24/04/20 Stoneleigh Kit Car Show Postponement COVID-19 UPDATE

    I sincerely hope that you and your families are keeping well and staying safe in these uncertain times. 

    The safety of our visitors and exhibitors is of paramount importance to us and, following the advice from the government regarding the Coronavirus, we have postponed the National Kit Car Motor Show. It will be rescheduled to Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th August 2020. Any tickets you have purchased for this show will be valid to use at the show in August and you will not require a replacement ticket. Exhibitors have been emailed individually regarding their stand bookings. We have endeavoured to inform clubs where we have an email address for them, but we apologise if you have not received a direct correspondence from us.

    We will continue to follow updates regarding the Coronavirus and will announce any changes to other future shows in due course. As you will understand, the situation changes daily and we are working to do what is best for exhibitors and visitors alike.

    Our office is currently closed and due to the large number of enquiries we are receiving at this time, we apologise that we are unable to respond individually to every enquiry, but will endeavour to provide you with up-to-date information, but this may be a generic email. Please remember only to trust our official website and Facebook page for information about our shows.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Stay safe!
