Malc Anderson retires from MSC | NEWS
Lambretta racing supremo, head mechanic, staunch Leicester City fan and keen model railway enthusiast, Malc Anderson fixed his final scooter at Midland Scooter Centre today.
65 year old Malc retired from the well-known scooter shop in Stapleford, Notts after almost three decades. Malc has worked at MSC for 29 years, back in the day alongside Dave Webster and Norrie Kerr, but in recent times with Roz and Andrew Webster-Noble (pictured above) at the helm. Malc is still well respected on the scooter and racing scenes. He won the Group 4 racing championship in 1993, 94 and 95, although he admits, “That was after Webbo packed in racing.”
As an experienced engineer, fabricator and of course mechanic, Malc has served his time. In fact he quipped, “The great train robbers only did one more year than me.” Speaking of trains, as a retirement gift Malc was presented with a Hornby scale model of his favourite locomotive, the LMS Black Five, by his colleagues at the shop.
Malc sold his race scooter in the 1990s after retiring from his illustrious racing career. His scooter was sold to a lad called Paddy in Nuneaton who apparently still owns it. Asked if he’d want it back Malc said, “Not at the moment, I’ve had enough of scooters for the time being. Never say never though, I might get back to just enjoying them again one day…”
From all of us at Scooter Lab, and the staff at Midland Scooter Centre we’d like to wish Malc a long, happy and fun-filled retirement.
