It’s Ken not Kenny

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I re­fer to the pro­posed ‘Kenny Blake Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor­cy­cling’ which is re­port­edly hap­pen­ing in Strathal­byn in Oc­to­ber. It’s known that ev­ery per­son who went to school, and trade school, and joined Ken Blake in en­ter­prise and raced with him al­ways knew him as Ken, or ‘Blakey’. Ken hated be­ing called Kenny. The fa­mil­iar diminu­tive of his name is un­suit­able for a gen­tle­man, and any ref­er­ence to Ken as ‘Kenny’ in any way does not have the sanc­tion of The Friends Of Ken Blake. Any ac­tiv­ity us­ing the name ‘Kenny’ has no sup­port from the Ken Blake Foun­da­tion.
