  • 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?

    Stilton Run Lunch

    By Derek,

    I am prepared to organise lunch at the Bell Inn Stilton again, but the numbers interested in the run seem to be down this year.

    If you would like to join us for lunch after the run please let me know by the end of January and I will start the ball rolling.



    Stilton Cheese weekend camping.

    By Kerry,

    I am testing the water to see if anyone would be interested in combining the Stilton Cheese run weekend into a camping weekend, staying on Friday 24th April and leaving Sunday 26th April.

    There are number of sites local either at Greetham, http://www.rutlandcaravanandcamping.co.uk/, or Wing http://www.winghall.co.uk/camping.html   and https://www.lyndontop.com/default.aspx

    which is basic but good views and good reviews.

    All sites are in easy reach of Uppingham.

    Please have a look and put your name down if you are interested, and if you had a particular site you think would suit your needs.

    Stoneleigh Kit Car Show 2nd & 3rd May 2020

    Wonder if this is the end of the show !!


    Warks / Worcs / West Mids Xmas Meal Wed 29th January 2020

    By richyb66,

    Wow, this seems to have come round quickly. It's  the Warks, Worcs, West Mids post Christmas meal. Same format and venue as previous years at The Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL


    To keep the table bills simple, most people normally opt for the carvery but other options are available:


    Meet up from 7PM onwards and aiming to eat around 7-30 but late comers can still get fed if they can't get there that early. I like to give the pub a better idea of the headcount a few days before the event so if interested parties let me know, I'll start a list and I'll make a booking for 25 people to get things rolling. I'll try and get us put in our regular area not where we were last time when we got a bit split up. If we get more people we'll either squeeze up a bit or take up more of the main dining area.

    Everyone welcome (including ladies and kids) and new members (or those thinking of joining) are especially welcome.

    Staffordshire Area Meet

    By Andi,

    There will be no meet until February and I will give plenty of notice where and when.

    I am going to change the day from Mondays because, well, because they`re Mondays. SO I am thinking Thursday evenings would be better.


    Calendar link - committee

    By MarkBzero,


    Is there any chance with our forum software we could create a link to add events to our personal calendars?

    Facebook allows this function and it works very well, more importantly reminds me of events before starting a job/DIY.
