  • 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?

    Run out to the Peaks 26/05/19

    By Andi,

    Meeting at Burton Services at the Cherry Tree Farm for breakfast (which I should point out is all you can eat for £4.49 so suspension adjustment may be necessary)  https://www.farmhouseinns.co.uk/pubs/derbyshire/cherry-tree-farm/breakfast/

    Etwall Road Willington Derby DerbyshireDE65 6DX United Kingdom


    I reckon 09.30 would be a good time and then give 45 mins or so before heading off. No route planned as yet but we would be stopping at a pub later on for lunch somewhere in the peaks

    This is of course all dependent on the weather which looks a bit iffy at the mo but a week is a long way off in British weather terms.

    All welcome member or not.
