Selby: A Tale of Links to the Car, Finance and Motorsport Industries

Selby is a small town in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, located on the banks of the river Ouse. It has a population of about 18,000, making it the 82nd largest town in the UK. The town began life as a Saxon village and has been in existence since at least 1086. In the 19th century, as the industrial revolution took hold, Selby enjoyed a period of rapid growth as the importance of the town and the surrounding area as a centre of the coal mining and railway industry increased. In more recent years, Selby has had links to a variety of industries and has become a much sought-after location for a range of businesses due to its excellent transport connections and its position at the centre of an important local enterprise zone.

The Car Industry and Selby

The car industry has strong links to Selby. During the early part of the 20th century, Selby was home to a number of car manufacturers. One of the earliest was the Progressive Cars Company which was established in 1910. The company lasted less than a decade, but its models continued to be produced in the town until the 1920s. During this period, the company produced a number of luxury cars that were sold to wealthy customers throughout the UK and Europe.

The car industry continued to be important to Selby throughout the 20th century, and during the 1960s a number of foreign car manufacturing companies set up operations in the town. The most notable of these was Toyota, who established their first ever UK-based manufacturing plant in Selby in 1968. The plant still produces vehicles today, including the popular Aygo city car.

The Finance Industry and Selby

Selby has long been a hub for financial services, with a number of large players making their home in the town. The most well-known of these is HSBC, which has been located in the town for over a century. In addition, Selby is home to a number of banks, building societies, insurance companies and other financial service providers.

The finance industry has changed significantly over recent years, and the town has responded to the increased digitisation of banking with a number of IT and software firms, such as the Leeds-based Intelligent Environments, setting up operations in the town. This, combined with an established workforce and good transport links, has made Selby an attractive option for companies looking to enter the UK financial services market.

Motorsport and Selby

Motorsport also has an important place in the history of Selby. During the 1930s, Selby was home to a purpose built racing venue, called the Selby Speed Stadium. The stadium was primarily used for motorcycle racing events and featured some of the biggest names in motorsport at the time, including the legendary motorcycle racer, Tazio Nuvolari. The stadium was sadly destroyed during the Second World War and was never rebuilt.

However, in more recent times, Selby has forayed back into the world of motorsport, with good links being established to racing car production companies. The most notable of these is Proton, who based their latest race car, the Proton 2 Racing, in the town. The car has since become a mainstay in the world of motorsport, winning the East Midlands Touring Car Championship in 2019.


Selby is an historic town in the East Riding of Yorkshire and has strong links to a variety of industries, including the car, finance and motorsport industries.

This has resulted in Selby having strong links to a number of different industries, including the car and finance industries, as well as motorsport. The town has also become an attractive option for a range of businesses due to its position at the centre of an important local enterprise zone, excellent transport links and established workforce.
