  • Welcome to The UK Kit Car Club

    The aim of the club is to help and support members during the build (and inevitable ongoing maintenance and modification) as well as to plan and organise events throughout the year. The Club attends the major kit car shows throughout the year providing a stand with tea and coffee, plus a BBQ with food for members. You'll be warmly received, especially if you bring more food and drink !! We also have stands at many other shows all around the country.

    It's not just shows though, our active area secretaries and members regularly arrange run outs and longer trips to such places as Le Mans, Wales and Scotland, plus the annual club camping weekend and the traditional “end of season” get together. Keep an eye on the events section of the forum for news and details of upcoming events.

    The Club also produces four magazines a year, exclusively for club members, filled with all manner of things club or motoring related, and members can get their own articles published in it as well if they wish.

    The Club is an independent organisation, and although we have our roots as the Robin Hood Owners Club and Register (RHOCaR), we are very much a club for all makes and model of kit car, so anyone can be a "Hoody", as it's 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 find that the discount is more than the club membership fee. Membership also gets you full access to the forum, and a variety of other discounts such as with Euro Car Parts. You'll also find other members are willing to go well above and beyond for any other member they see is in need of help !

    So whether you own a Robin Hood, a GBS Zero, a Locost, an MK, a Westfield, a Caterham, (or any of the many other types of kit car), everyone can benefit from joining, so what are you waiting for ?

    Corby Glen Sheep Fair Sunday 8 October

    alanrichey
    By alanrichey,

    As is customary at this time of the year as the season closes down, we are invited to display our cars at the Corby Glen Sheep Fair (https://sheepfair.co.uk/.  Post Code: NG33 4NW

    This is a classic small village fair, with food stalls, craft stalls, dog show, fun fair, morris dancing and classic cars.   We have been displaying our cars here for 10 years (ever since I moved into the next village 😀) and will do it again this year.   For a small village show it often attracts well over 50 cars of all shapes and sizes so it is well worth attending.   In particular it is unusual as it is free and you can arrive/leave whenever you like.

    I'll post more details nearer the day, so put it in your diary.


    Flyers

    alanrichey
    By alanrichey,

    The Club has recently stocked up with some flyers.   If anyone is thinking of going to a car show where they can usefully distribute them (we normally slide one underneath the windscreen wiper of any kit cars not displaying our sticker 😀)  just let me know and I will send you 10 copies (the most I can send under a second class stamp).

    Useful Sites

    alanrichey
    By alanrichey,

    You may have noticed I have implemented a new option on the blue banner called 'Useful Sites'.   At the moment it has PDF copies of the recent magazines, the old NW Group pages that still had some very relevant information, a link to some build blogs and, not surprisingly, a page for Superspec owners that I have edited.

    It would be nice if we had similar pages for the other models so people don't have to search the whole database for useful information on their car.   So if anyone would care to look after pages for the 3,3A,Exmo,2B...   please let me know.   And if anyone knows any other good build blogs to add please let me know as well.

    West Mids Monthly Meet 30th August 2023

    By richyb66,

    Next Wednesday 30th, 6pm onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL.

    Generally they're trying to kick us out just after 930pm so if you're coming, don't leave it too late. Also, if you want to eat, book beforehand as they don't normally let people just rock up and eat.

    Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island.

    Everyone welcome. See you there.


    SE event: Cars in the Square, Southampton, Sept 3rd

    nelmo
    By nelmo,

    When I booked this a month ago, it was to be held in Winchester but there was some council problem, so it's been moved into the centre of Southampton.

    Also annoyingly, despite having paid my £5, I may not be able to make it, but anyway, if anyone else fancies a day out...

    Car club with meets in West Sussex

    dandan62
    By dandan62,

    I thought I'd put in a good word for the Sadcase car club (Storrington and District Classic and Sportscar Enthusiasts)based in Storrington.  They are a free to register club which have well attended meets at various pubs and locations in the area including the Goodwood circuit occasionally. Their motto is, if you love your car then they love it. All types of cars attend from vintage to modern. They welcome kits. I'm a regular in my RH along with one other RH. It would be great to see some other locals there with their Robin Hoods. People travel quite far to attend.
