'Red Demon’ rides again with Hartford’s help
Family-run property developer Hartford Homes is supporting road racer Anthony Redmond in this year’s TT races.
After several years of competing in the Manx Grand Prix, Tony completed his first TT in 2015 and last year achieved 19th place in the Lightweight and 42nd in the Superbike race.
This year, he is entered in the Superbike, Superstock and Senior races riding a BMW S1000. He said: “We are extremely grateful to Hartford Homes and their unique sponsorship in getting us here.”
Tony and his family are currently in the process of moving over to the Isle of Man from the UK, balancing the move with racing and working.
With Hartford’s support, they were able to get moving before the festival, as Tony explained: “Without this opportunity, we certainly wouldn't have been able to move here and compete in TT 2017 - it would most definitely have been a case of one or the other.”
Originally from Manchester, the 42-year-old has been visiting the Isle of Man since he was a child and feels the island could give his own children a better future.
Hartford Homes director James Greenhalgh said: “It’s great to see the spirit of everyone involved in ‘Team Tony’ and we’re thrilled to be a part of that, helping them reach the start line.
“We’d also like to welcome Tony and family to the Isle of Man and hope they enjoy their new home.”
