The club provides a meeting place where kit car owners and potential owners can meet and interact with other like minded people. A wide range of interests and tastes are catered for in the club, as can be seen by looking at the "our cars" link in the contents panel. Some have opted to build a kit from an experienced supplier, whilst others have bought pre-built kits. A few concentrate on completely home designed specials that are truly unique.

The club was formed in 1990 by a small group of kit car enthusiasts who wanted a regular meeting place and the opportunity to do things together at minimal cost. The club has grown steadily , developing a strong, friendly atmosphere, few rules and the emphasis on socialising and helping each other out technically. There is an entertaining and informative club magazine, "The Grin Factor", sent out to members regularly, free of charge.

During the winter season, the club stage indoor events on Club nights. These have included indoor games, presentations by manufacturers and suppliers, talks by the police, quiz nights and other entertainment. The remainder of the year, club nights are about gathering together for a good natter under a bonnet or chassis or over a sensible drink. Other events are organised and have included visits to manufacturers, various shows, motor sport events, treasure hunts, places of interest and driving skills tests. Where possible convoy runs are a feature.
