  • 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?

    Can someone copy and paste this message about Ruddington heritage centre classic vehicle meet 
    Ruddington heritage centre 
    This weekend (bank holiday) we are open Saturday and Sunday and Monday. All Classics will be most welcome from 9am to 5pm. But i will be there from 8am if anyone wants to arrive early. I will be spacing cars 1 metre apart because of the covid. But they normally do that anyway so opening doors don't bang the next car .Free cuppa for anyone bringing a classic.    Cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch etc. Site has been made all covid friendly and the cafe is covid ready and all toilets have been brought up to covid standards.

    silverstone social club

    By William Williams,

    The above club puts on car meets and I went to one in July at Turweston air field near Brackley  Northants. About 500 cars turned up, kit cars, hot rods, classics, and a Austin 7 special ''kit car' Back in the late fifties buy a seven for £7-50 scrap the body and build a sports car. Go on their site,no need to join them just turn up. Where does the name Locost come from, mine has cost £1,000 just to make it safe for the road.Still it was  a gift with a headache

    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Monthly Meet August/September 2020

    By richyb66,

    I've been back to the Malt Shovel tonight to check out the state of play. They are now open for drinks but unfortunately the area they have set aside for drinking will only accommodate half a dozen people.

    In addition, they are busy on Wednesday nights with people eating subsidised meals and often use the drinking area for eating.

    With this in mind, I still don't think it's safe or practical to hold our regular meeting there just yet.

    I have also done a quick tour of a few other local establishments to look for an alternative and haven't found anything suitable. I think most that are open are mainly serving food and they are also likely to be busy on a Wednesday. 

    If anyone has suggestions for other possibilities, let me know but I won't organise anything unless I can make a visit myself and ensure it's going to be safe for those attending.

    Hopefully I'll catch up with everyone soon.

    Lincolnshire Meetings for August

    By alanrichey,

    I would like to restart meetings for the Lincolnshire team in August.   As usual I am looking for weekend lunchtime picnics which have been so successful in the past.   Unfortunately I am struggling with the same problems as other area secretaries in that we are limited to 6 people and also I need to find somewhere nice to visit with a big car park and, importantly,  open toilets.   My usual core team of 6 had a couple of practice runs in July, visiting Rutland Water and Foxton Locks, both very successful.   But we used the fact that we are all retired to have the meetings mid-week.  Even then, both of these locations were very busy so would probably be non-starters for a weekend meet.  I'm going to check out Burlghly House on Sunday to see how busy that might be.   But if anyone has any other suggestions in the local area let me know.

    Meanwhile, could I have an idea of who would be interested if I can solve the problems ?   Please PM me or post here and let me know if you are weekend only or could manage any time.

    Staffordshire Area Meet 06/08/2020

    By Andi,

    Hi all,

    This will be the local event for Staffordshire in August (about time too)

    Spread Eagle Watling St, Gailey, Stafford ST19 5PN



    It`s a huge pub / restaurant / car park / garden and so distancing should not be a problem. Starting at around 19.30pm (you can book a table for food earlier if you like).

    Everybody is welcome, come and drive your cars, or come and look at the cars if your building or thinking of getting a kit.

    Come and say hello to the fat bloke with bleached hair, god knows I need to talk to someone lately.
