Westburn Finance are delighted to continue our association with The Royal Deeside Speed Festival, and to once again sponsor The Westburn Finance Soap Box Derby.
Westburn Finance - Aberdeen's Finance Broker, are celebrating their 25th year in business in 2017. Originally established to finance plant, equipment and vehicles for local businesses Westburn Finance have now expanded this offering to private individuals- funding vehicles from young people's first cars to the types of automotive artistry that you will see displayed by enthusiasts at Kincardine Castle on the 20th August.
Westburn Finance were proud to sponsor the inaugural Soap Box Derby last year, and are excited to expand their support further in their 25th anniversary year. To commemorate this occasion Westburn Finance have commissioned the Westburn Finance Soap Box Derby Shield, which will be presented to the victors. Westburn Finance will once again be supplying trophies for winners in each category to keep, with the Shield being returned year on year.
It is hoped that the Shield will grow in prestige in line with the event, and will itself one day boast a proud 25 year history. Westburn Finance MD Chris Williams is a huge fan of the Soap Box Derby saying "The Soap Box Derby is a delightful family event, not just for the spectacle itself but also for the hours of dedicated work that go in to getting a racer on the start line. The values of family, and hard work are very much in line with our company ethos, and it makes us very proud to be associated with the race and the Royal Deeside Speed Festival as a whole.
Event supporter and prolific local businessman Alastair Chalmers has come on board with his business L&N Scotland as the main hillclimb sponsor! Mr Chalmers has been a keen supporter of the event since its beginnings last year, bringing his fantastic collection of cars and bikes along - this year he just couldn't help but get involved in an official capacity!
For this the team are truly grateful - it's fantastic to see our work being recognised by local businesses and see the support we have generated after only our first year. This can surely only mean one thing for the future of the event - growth and success.
It's the support of our brilliant sponsors and every single one of you that come along on the day that allow this to happen. So thank you!

The specially designed course includes a series of obstacles, including the rocky road, the wall of doom and the toblerone. Rounding the route off is Willie’s Drop, a blind, very steep descent over an edge into the depths of the estate’s old quarry.
Visitors will be able to book their Experience at the Festival of Speed and will also have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to WIN a Full Day Land Rover Experience Adventure for two people including dinner, bed and breakfast at the prestigious Fonab Castle Hotel in Highland Perthshire.
