Kenny Blake was more than a talented road racer, a good conversationalist, a friendly socialiser. He was a very complete person.

Brian Cowan - Motorcycle Journalist

Two-stroke or four-stroke, big or small, machines with nasty habits or sweet handlers, Blake could ride them all.

Don Cox - Gassit Garage

Kenny had pure, natural ability. He was a true gentleman, but on the track, he was pure tiger. His concentration was fantastic and he was very tenacious.

Michael Cole - Production & Superbike rider 1970s
