  • 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?

    Goodwood breakfast club..new member in the area?

    By dandan62,

    It seems there are a few new members who have joined over the winter in the Chichester area. A Facebook group from the South Coast kit club are planning a trip there in March 1st. This may be a good opportunity to come along and say hello. I'm hoping there will be a few Robin Hood/Gbs owners there too. Its a V8 gathering so no chance of getting onto the track but they do a good bacon butty and it would be great to meet any new local members. You need to register on the Goodwood website and reserve a ticket which is free. A passenger is also included.

    Kimbolton show July 12th

    Peter Bell
    By Peter Bell,

    Kimbolton show will be 12th of July this year, I’ve been asked if the club wants a pitch again this year. Are there enough people interested? They have sent the following info:-


    We’re pleased to report that the admission charges remain the same this year at a flat rate of £10 per car.

    This year, we will once again be posting out wristbands to streamline entry into the show.

    Wristbands will be distributed to the car club points of contact in early June to provide you with enough time to distribute these to your club, so please let me know if your club will be attending by the end of April. 

    This year, wristbands will again be colour coded to enable our team on the gates to direct you towards the correct parking area quickly and easily. Please make sure your drivers have their exhibitor bands upon arrival, so that our volunteers know to direct you to your club stand, rather than general exhibition parking. 

    Exhibitor wristbands will be sent out one per car and any additional passengers will be required to collect a wristband on the gate when you pay to enter the show. There will not be an additional cost for any additional passengers. 

    Please note: As per new rules implemented by the Council in 2019, ALL CARS NEED TO BE ON SITE BY 11AM AND WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO LEAVE THE SITE UNTIL THE SHOW CLOSES AT 4PM.  

    Last year, we did have a number of cars trying to leave the show early… this is not permitted by order of the Council that grants us permission to run the show. Please, please, if any of your members are not able to stay until the end of the show, we ask that they park in visitor parking (which they can leave at any time). Cars on the show ground must remain static between 11am and 4pm!

    Wales Trip Late May Bank Holiday Weekend

    By theduck,



    I've been talking about this for a while and I know a few people had expressed interest so I figured I would throw up a post and see who is up for it.

    Basic plan is this:

    Dates: Saturday 23rd May - Monday 25th May (Which is a bank holiday)

    Where: Elan Valley, Mid-Males

    The Plan:

    23rd May - Meet up for Breakfast at cafe near me (WV16 area), once we and the cars are full, follow a pre-set route to Elan Valley - 80miles

    24th May - Run out around mid-wales taking in various stops for lunch, refreshments , fuel etc -150miles
    Planned stops include Corris Craft Centre and Tregaron Kite Centre.
    Dinner out somewhere together at the end of the day.

    25h May - Possibly do something on the Morning (open to suggestions) then head home - Have a different route planned back in the general direction of mine should people want to do that which is about 65miles.

    My original plan was to have done a reccy run before now and tested out the routes, but with breaking the kit for spares and starting the new project, I havent had chance, but knowing the area reasonably well, I think it should be a decent route with enough fuel stops for even @Andi to make it round without too much fear of running out of petrol!

    In terms of accommodation, having had a quick look around Rhayader looks ideal with plenty of options at sensible money.  This link will show you some of the options locally https://tinyurl.com/vsovo6u

    Also a campsite very close by that looks reasonable for those who prefer aluminium or canvas roofs https://www.campsites.co.uk/search/campsites-in-wales/powys/rhayader/wyeside-camping-and-caravanning-club-site

    So, if you are interested, drop your name below.  I'm not sure what I will be driving yet, but if it comes to it, I'll just take the Scooby again.



    This is definitely happening now, so book your accommodation and leave a comment below with where you are staying so I can add you to the list - Also just to say, I cant vouch for any of the accommodation I have listed below, just lisited the ones close to where I have booked that are reasonably priced.
