  • 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?

    Change of Address

    By alanrichey,

    We have had a couple of cases recently of the magazine going to the wrong address.   If you do move house then updating your address in your profile is a good idea, but unfortunately it doesn't send a notification to the Membership Secretary so won't get picked up.

    So if you do move house please let me know either by messaging me at membership@rhocar.org or by using the "Contact Us" link on the Website.

    Membership Map resurrected

    By alanrichey,

    Some of you will have noted that the Member Map recently disappeared.  It appears that a recent software update broke it (Those of you with iPhones will be used to this 😀).   It is now back, although it is now called Community Map.   As before it can be accessed from the blue  bar on the main screen.    There is a minor problem in that the  + Create > Community Map Marker (top right of the main screen) is not working.   But if you actually go the map there is an option to add your location and that seems to work.  I am discussing the problem with the author so hopefully I can get it fixed.

    Of the 380 current members we have only 130 markers and many of those members have lapsed (I will be deleting them over the next few weeks).   So I encourage you to add your location.  Apart from helping the Area Secretaries to find out who is in their area you might find people near you who can help with any problems.


    West Mids Monthly Meet 26th October 2022

    By richyb66,

    Still on the last Wednesday of the month (next Wednesday), 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL.

    I'll aim to be there just after 6pm, 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.

    East of England Meets for October

    By alanrichey,

    As usual in October we are off to the Corby Glen Sheep Fair  (NG33 4NS - www.sheepfair.co.uk)  this Sunday (9th October).

    For those that have not been before, this is a traditional small village fete with all the usual stalls, entertainment, food and drink, dog show, craft shows, morris dancing, car display.....   and this is the 784th one so they must be doing something right.

    Unlike other shows the organisers are very relaxed about the car display and although the Fair is open from 10:00-16:00 they are happy for us to arrive whenever we like and leave whenever we like.  I normally park up about 09:30 and reserve some spaces (I live only 1 mile away so it isn't difficult).   I 'think' I've sorted out the weather so it should be dry 😀

    We park next to the war memorial at the West end of the villae.  This is the approach route, it's the only bit with a dropped kerb.

    See you there.
