  • 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?

    North East Area Monthly Meeting

    By alantoon,

    Committee Vacancies

    By alanrichey,

    Hopefully it will not have escaped everyone’s notice that at the last AGM we failed to get a volunteer to be the Events Secretary.   This was primarily seen as too large a responsibility for one person so it was agreed we would change the post to be a team leader with other part-time volunteers.   Unfortunately we still don’t have a volunteer to take over.   Also you will all have seen that Neil Hammond intends to stand down as Magazine Editor next year after a few years of filling the post.   So far no-one has come forward to fill that post either.

    If these posts remain unfilled then we will lose our quarterly magazine, something that I believe sets us apart from other clubs, and we won’t be able to have an annual Club Meet, or provide subsidised food and drink at other kit car shows.  That would be a real shame.

    To help, I have written some Terms of Reference for all the posts on the Committee as well as the Area Secretaries.  This will give you an idea of the duties of these posts and the time required.

    So please think seriously about helping the Club by volunteering for one of these posts (and get free membership).

    North East Area Monthly Meeting

    By alantoon,

    Wednesday the 28th of September is the date of our next North East (Northern) meeting at the Church Mouse, Chester Moor, Chester le Street, DH23RJ from around 7pm. We have had a proposal to change the day the meetings are held so anyone with a view on the changes could you attend or contact me with your thoughts before the meeting. 

    Annual national Club meeting Cars at The Farm

    By Kerry,

    I’m the absence of the EOSB we have been invited to Craig Cundy Farm in Huntingdon for our annual event for 2023 Cars on The Farm. 
    The date of the event is 25th -27th August 2023.  
    We have posted this early so everyone can put the dates in their calendar. 
    The event allows people to camp on the farm from Thursday 24th through to Monday 28th should they wish. 
    There will be a charge for people staying over, day visitor entry will be free. 
    A bouncy castle will be provided, and toilets will be provided. 
    We will also look at Clay Pigeon shooting and the speed bingo is always a good laugh. 
    A BBQ will be provided on Saturday evening.  
    The barn will be available to use which can accommodate 100 people which hopefully we can arrange a disco or a band. 
    A run out will take place on Saturday.

    The farm has plenty of space for camping and Caravans with easy access onto the camping area  

    More details will follow shortly. 
    It would be great to see faces old and new.

    East of England Meets for September

    By alanrichey,

    A bit of a disappointing turnout at the End-of-Season Bash last weekend although all the participants had a good time.   But in the East we don't have a season, we operate all year round 😀

    So, seeing as the weather next week has suddenly come good, we are going to have a picnic at one of our favourite meeting places.   Sywell Aerodrome in Nottinghamshire (NN6 0BN).    A large free car park, a cafe if you don't want to self-cater, a museum, a static aircraft display and also a nice view of the operations on the airfileld.

    All welcome, 12:00 on Tuesday 13th Sept, bring a chair, or a rug.

    And don't forget the GBS Coffee & Cake on Sat 17th, weather lookin OK at this stage.
