Kenny Blake Festival of Motorcycling
Next Occurrence : 26 Oct 2018
The Kenny Blake Festival of Motorcycling, celebrates the life and achievements of racing’s ‘gentleman racer’.
Kenny Blake grew up in Strathalbyn, with a love of motorcycle racing. He started racing his 28/10 1964 Triumph in 1966, and was soon taken under the wings of Les and Dean Jesser.
He had his first major win at the 1973 Castrol 6 hour Production Bike Race in Sydney. In 1976 he won the coveted Australian 500TT race against a field of international riders and went on to win 11 national championships.
See custom motorcycles, memorabilia and selected new bikes from retailers and exhibitors. Expect a motorcycle show like no other! This is NOT a motorcycle trade fair, it’s an exhibition and celebration of Kenny Blake’s life, in the town where he grew up.
Everyone is invited! Stay for the whole weekend, bring your camera, bring your mates, your better half, and the kids too. Every element of this unique event has been
hand-picked by the organisers, the exhibited bikes are ‘Invitational’ and selected from the era that Kenny Blake raced.
Come along for a fantastic weekend that will be packed with things to do.
