Kenny was an Australian chum of Chas Mortimer and was travelling with him around the GP circus in 1978. He had a good deal of experience in long distance races in Australia and so, when a partner was needed for Chas on the Gus Kuhn Suzuki at Nurburgring eight hour race that year, he was the obvious choice.
Kenny was an ebullient character, much liked by all who met him. Sadly, he was killed at the TT in 1981. Read more about him on: http://www.halltech.com.au/kennyb/kbbio.htm
