Wetherby - A Small Town with a Very Big Heart

When one hears the name Wetherby, one tends to think of a small, sleepy Yorkshire town with nothing much going on. This is an unhelpful misconception; the reality is, the small town of Wetherby is home to a number of diverse and highly intriguing elements that make it stand out from the run-of-the-mill rural locations in the North of England.

In actual fact, over recent years, it has become clear that Wetherby has something of a knack when it comes to connecting to the car industry, the finance industry and motorsport. Wetherby is now, potentially, the ideal centre for modern business and leisure development, as well as a desirable place for people to live.

Located in the heart of West Yorkshire, a mere twelve miles from Leeds, Wetherby is around the same population size at 7,000 and has on offer some attractive picturesque surroundings, as well interesting local livelihoods.

The Car Industry, Finance and Wetherby

Wetherby's connection with the car industry and associated finance institutions first began in 2000 when the South Leeds Business Centre was conceived by the Leeds and Partners Business Board, as one of its first major investments. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund and attracted to this small town location by Wetherby's demographic catchment, the centre has now become a very successful and profitable enterprise.

The centre boasts three industrial units and some beautifully landscaped outdoor areas, where visitors and tenants can relax and enjoy their work environment. It is here that three contemporary business units supply a range of services and products to commercial and retail customers across the region and beyond, including in the automotive and finance sectors.

The centre was an understandable draw for the finance community due to its proximity to the international financial hubs centred around Leeds and Manchester. It is also home to a range of car dealerships, from MG Rover, Ford, Audi and BMW.

This means that Wetherby is excellently positioned to serve the automotive and finance industries in the North of England, as well as many other local areas.

Motorsport in Wetherby

In addition to the automotive and finance communities, Wetherby has plenty to offer in the way of entertainment for car and motorsport enthusiasts.

The Wetherby Raceway is one of the country's foremost circuits and is a hub of incredible activity with some of the world's top drivers getting their fix of adrenaline-fuelled competition.

Wetherby Raceway was built in 2003 and was funded by the nearby Harewood Estate and is the only track in the area certified by the British Automobile Racing Club. It was specially designed to give the local motorsport fanatics an opportunity to participate, with an asphalt and gravel track of 1.3 miles, spectators' grandstands and an open pit area ensuring a thrilling experience.

The raceway also hosts large events, such as the Wetherby Grand Prix every summer. This race also sees some of the national and international racing's big guns present on the day, alongside grassroots racers looking for a taste of the challenge.

Aside from the established raceway, Wetherby has a number of track operators, offering the area's petrol heads and thrill seekers a chance to compete on various events on kart circuits around the area.
