  • 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?

    Area Secretary Changes

    By richyb66,

    We're pleased to announce the following changes to the Area Secretary roles.

    Current Leicestershire Secretary Andy Cartwright (Andi) is relocating to Stafford and so will be standing down from his current role and has agreed to take up the vacant position in Staffordshire. No doubt Andy will have plans for the area and as we have a number of members locally, hopefully they will give him their support in anything he organises.

    Kerry Allen (Kerry)has kindly agreed to take over the Leicestershire role from Andy.

    They both have a wealth of experience in the club and Im sure everyone wishes them well in their new roles.

    Were always looking for people to fill vacant Area Secretary positions and its a position that isnt as time consuming or difficult as people think and is something you can really put your own stamp on. As a minimum youll probably need to post up a monthly meet but anything over and above that is pretty much up to you. Local area events can apply for club funding so if you want to organise a gathering that involves some expenditure, the club can help with this.

    As a small reward for you efforts, you do receive free club membership so if anyone would like to consider a position and wants more information, please contact me.

    Caffine & Machine - Opening Saturday 27Th Oct 2018

    By Thrashed,

    Seen this place opening on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/events/188752982016954/)


    No idea if it is any good, but might be a good place for meet ups or just a destination to drive too?


    I will probably pop down on Saturday, so will report back.


    This is what they say about themselves:


    A Coffee house, licensed bar and restaurant, boutique b&b, and living art gallery, C&M is designed very simply as a place to go, a destination in and of itself if you appreciate moving things. With fabulous food, mind-blowing coffee and high-end rooms, C&M offers everything you expect from a modern member’s club - except you don’t have to be a member to enjoy it.

    Come and enjoy our opening... see you there!
