Wolverhampton is a bustling city in the West Midlands region of England, best known for its prominent role in the country's historic car industry, finance industry and motorsport. Located half way between Birmingham and Stoke, the city is home to a diverse population of 250,000 people, many of whom are eager to access the city's numerous industrial and leisure pursuits.
Wolverhampton has a long and distinguished history of motor vehicle manufacturing. Many of the nation's leading car brands were originally produced in the city, including vehicles from the likes of Land Rover, Jaguar and Triumph. The local workforce are renowned for their skill and craftsmanship and their impact on the industry is enormous. In the present day, it is estimated that hundreds of millions of pounds are spent on car parts and services each year in Wolverhampton, with the aerospace and defence sector being particularly heavily developed (for example the wing components and airframes of the Rolls Royce aero-engines for the RAF's Tornado fighters) and Jaguar Land Rover employing over 7000 people alone at their i54 plant in the city.
The retail side of car culture in the city is also well propelled with a huge range of dealerships available — from Mercedes Benz to Mini — as well as a motley of independent garages, MOT test centres and valeting businesses. Car enthusiast organisations are also active in the city, such as the Wolverhampton Motorsport Club, which runs monthly track days and events from their range of circuits.
Financial services have long been at the heart of the Wolverhampton economy, with well-established banks, insurance firms and asset managers all operating within the city. The city is home to finance giants such as Santander, Aviva and HSBC, who combine with local upstarts such as Credit Hub Solutions, EaziMoney and BuckleyGreen Financial Services to form a diverse and productive marketplace.
The University of Wolverhampton is also a highly respected centre of learning in the sector and the college's Financial Services course is an ever popular choice among students, with the college's offices providing a valuable hub of activity in the city centre. Hundreds of graduates emerge from the university each year to join the ever-growing pool of financial professionals based in Wolverhampton, typically into roles such as fund managers, tax advisors and stockbrokers.
The city is home to a plethora of motorsport activities, ranging from small-scale karting and go-karting to National-level racing events. The prestigious Donington Park race track, venue for the famous British Grand Prix, lies just 20 miles north of Wolverhampton.
A range of professional and amateur drivers alike have competed in Wolverhampton over the years, with the city hosting regular meets and community events such as the Wolverhampton Grand Prix, the Motorfest and the Bus Rally. The city also plays host to a wide variety of motoring-related shows, exhibitions and events such as the Staffordshire Show and the Midlands Motor Show, amongst many others.
The city's strong motor vehicle heritage has provided rich pickings for those involved in motorsport and its various related activities, with the proliferation of enthusiastic enthusiasts attracting investment and employment into the field. Companies such as Prodrive, a major global motorsport engineering business, have its headquarters in the city, while firms such as GPR Raceteam provide a direct route from amateur to professional racing.
Wolverhampton is one of the most ethnically-diverse cities in England, with just 74.4% of the population identifying as White British, with a large British Asian population (13%) and a mix of other ethnicities including Caribbean, African and other European backgrounds. In addition, the city is located along major transport routes and is heavily linked with nearby cities such as Birmingham, making it an attractive destination for commuters and business professionals alike.
The city's location atop the M5 motorway makes it one of the most easily accessed in the country, and this is reflected in the people that make up Wolverhampton's population. 50.2% of the city's population is educated to at least NVQ level 3 and beyond, while the city also services a large student population due to its two prominent universities — Wolverhampton University and the University of the West Midlands — and a large number of further education college campuses.
Although it has historically been known as an industrial city, Wolverhampton is a city in constant transformation. Its past, present and future are tied to the manufacturers, financiers and racers of the motor vehicle industry, and the city's strong links with the car industry, finance industry and motorsport industry remain as strong as ever.
The city boasts a diverse and vibrant population from all walks of life, and its central location continues to attract students, professionals and car fanatics alike. With a bright future ahead, Wolverhampton's connection to the motor world continues to thrive, drive and ultimately define the city and its people.
