HAMMOND GOES AWOL

Instead of dossing around the Donington Park paddock, to wallow in Oxford Products Ducati team hospitality, Oxford managing director Andrew Hammond went AWOL from the British Superbike Championship’s penultimate round to get a little exercise for charitable purposes.

Hammond completed the London Marathon on Sunday 2 October in a highly respectable time of 4:36:32, overcoming a bout of Covid and a classic flare-up of athlete’s Plantar Fasciitus along the way.

In the process, he raised more than £4500 for Special Effect, an Oxfordshire-based charity which helps physically disabled people to use adaptive technology for communication and leisure, bringing about much-needed independence.
 
“They do a fantastic job, changing the lives of so many people,” Hammond explained. “So please give generously by visiting my JustGiving page. At the grand old age of 50, that was my first-ever marathon — and probably my last!”

Andrew Hammond’s JustGiving page can be found at tinyurl.com/3m8bx56b, for members of the trade who would like support such a worthy cause.
