Ken is best know as Stirling Moss' manager but he began competing in a Kieft in 1950 and when Cyril Kieft tackled the 350cc and 500cc international records at Montlhery the driving team consisted of Moss, Gregory and John Neil. The team took 14 records. Ken also raced a Cooper and later a JBS.

Ken Gregory also managed Peter Collins, was an early director of Brands Hatch, secretary of the British Racing & Sports Car Club, and co-founder of the British Racing Partnership with Alfred Moss, to be a vehicle for Stirling to go racing. The BRP team ran Cooper-Borgwards, a BRM (briefly), UDT-Laystall Lotus 24s and their own version of the Lotus 25. BRP then built a pair of unsuccessful Indianapolis cars for 1965 and eventually closed down in 1966 after a planned F1 project was scrapped. Ken also also had a successful publishing career.
