 TJ Kenny

 

 

TJ Kenny, owner of TK Autosports, has always had a passion for automobiles. After achieving full ASE certification, he has been diligently working in the automotive repair industry since 2006. In spare time he went on to build and drive a few of his own race cars and over a short time realized a need for a specialized shop to help others enjoy track time as well.  With his experience, he founded TK Autosports in 2011.  TJ combines quality, experience, and passion to give you excellent and knowledgeable service while keeping you safe on track.

What is the most exciting and rewarding part of your job?

The most exciting thing about racing to me is the relationship between the car and the track surface and all the physics behind what makes the car feel the way it does and behave like it should. The smallest change in the car or track can make such a big difference. Basically my job is making driver and car comfortable at speed, being able to make those small adjustments to make the car comfortable and the driver happy is both the most exciting and most rewarding part of the job.

What is your current most wanted production car?

Id have to say the Jaguar XKR-GT.  I'm a big fan of jaguar style and the sound the XKR would keep me happy just about anywhere.

What do you like to do that is Not racing related?

Just about anything with my dogs or other animals, I have been doing some Skiing in the cold weather months when there is no racing, and I'm always happy to sit by the water with a fishing rod.  

Ian Robinson

Long time high school friend of Owner, TJ Kenny, Ian has been a part of TK Autosports shop activities from the start.  Starting January of 2015 he became a full time team member and has proven himself as a very skilled motorsports technician and a very hard worker for the customers.  He can be seen sprinting between customer's cars each track day so that accurate measurements can be made and everyone can explain any concerns after a session.  With a background in Automotive mechanical service, customer service and parts sourcing he is a key crew member in the fluid operation within the workshop.

What is the most exciting and rewarding part of your job?

Definitely the most exciting is building the cars for a purpose and making them better, faster and more fun than people think possible, The most rewarding is watching the cars perform and be driven at the new limit we have helped them achieve.

He has been behind all major decisions in TK Autosports from the very concept and from January 2016 will be a normal face around the shop and office.  Now a full time team member, he will apply his experience and expert business skills to the expansion and smooth operation of TK Autosports.
