Kennet was the longest serving rider for the Canterbury Crusaders (speedway), riding from 1971 to 1984.
In 1973 Kennet was runner-up to Peter Collins (speedway rider) in the British Under 21 Speedway Championship. The same year he became the most expensive Division Two rider in a transfer deal. Hackney Hawks boss Len Silver paid a record £1500.01 to Canterbury Crusaders, adding the 1p to beat the record paid previously by Oxford Rebels for Gordon Kennett, his brother, to transfer from Eastbourne Eagles. Despite this deal, Johnny Hoskins, boss of the Crusaders, wrote-in a loan-back clause, meaning that Canterbury Crusaders could still call on Kennet to ride for them.
