  • 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?

    Hi Not sure if anyone will turn up for the meeting at the Church Mouse, Waldridge  Chester le Street DH23RJ on Boxing day so I am going to use the pub as a stopping off point, as it is quite a good forecast so I am going to have a bit of a run-out. I will be there at about 7-30 and i will stay for a hour to see if anyone turns up. If you can't make it all the best to you all and we will meet up at the Jan. meeting.  Alan

    Goodbye Leicestershire

    By Andi,

    It is with great regret that I have to leave my brothers and sisters in the leics and surrounding areas. I have had a fantastic time and met some truly weird, wonderful, educated, amazing, talented and friendliest folk one could ever wish to meet. 

    Thank you all for turning up to the Leicester kitmas meal tonight and thanks for the gifts. 

    I have watched our local club grow from strength to strength over the years which is in contrast to the national declining trend in the kit world, and I hope it continues to do so.

    We have a strong and capable new rep called Kerry (Yaaaaay) at the helm and he will "rock da club" for future events. 

    I will still turn up for runs and events as I'm only moving to staffs. 

    If anyone is thinking of buying or building a kit in the leics area, then join the club. These guys will be round to help or offer advice at the drop of a hat. 

    Cheers all

    By theduck,

    Given we are now in December I have activated, and set to be the default, our Christmas theme for the website, I hope you like it 😁

    If it is not for you, scroll to the bottom of the page, select “Theme” and you can set pack to the normal default or one of the dark themes and the forum will remember your personal setting. We will also automatically set back to the normal theme after Christmas. 


    Oh and if you are on mobile, be sure to check it out on a computer for the full effect!

    The 1st "Jim Clark Road Run"

    By Moog6,

    Hi Everyone,


    I am Publicity/Promotions Manager for The Linlithgow Classic Car Group,

    Next 25th August marks our 10th Anniversary, and to celebrate this I am organising a very special event indeed.

    In memory of Jim Clark (Who's 50th Anniversary of passing, June gone), We are launching "The 1st Jim Clark Road Run".

    The Road Run will be limited to 100 cars. Each Car taking part on the day, will receive a specially designed plaque (designed by myself) which can be tied to the front of the car. These Plaques will become very sort after!!! They are Sponsored by Dragonfly- The Rally Plate Company. (You have to be there with your car at registration to gain the plaque!!!).

    I can add your name and car to a pre list, just message me . (This does not guarantee you a plaque, you and your car have to be there at registration on the day!!!)

    The Road Run will take around 2 hrs starting at 10.30am just outside Linlithgow, taking in the beautiful surrounding scenery. Then arriving at Linlithgow  high street, joining the other 100 parked classic cars. Parking is on the high street, the cross, and in front of Linlithgow Palace. 

    It would be nice to see some members cars taking part. 

    I'm working on a special guest to start the Road Run along with Doug Niven (Jim Clarks cousin) and the event opens and kicks off at around 12.30.

    Doug will be bringing along Jim Clarks last owned car- his Yellow Lotus Elan.

    In attendance also will be the Jim Clark Trust, who are now raising money for the 2nd phase of the Jim Clark Museum.

     It's a lovely day, great atmosphere too!!!

    Thanks for your time.
