We are a large group of pinewood derby enthusiasts from all over the United States. Some of us only race on the local level in Den, Pack, District and Council level. Others of us have children who have out grown the local scene and now race at the professional league level know as proxy racing.
The Global Craftsman's cars are unique in that no two cars look the same. They might sacrifice some speed in order to set their car's style apart from the others. They set a standard for all cars after to be duplicated in design, paint and modifications. They use unique products which then become industry standards for all.
Global Derby Society
Here at Global Derby Society, we do not care how fast you can go, how well you can paint. We do not care which league you are affiliated with, or whose derby products you think is better. Pinewood derby has greatly evolved over the past years due to the professional league racer. Companies have stepped up to provide all racers, both league and local level, with better tools and racing equipment. No one company can claim responsibility for this progression. Each has taken time to assess other company’s products, listened to feedback from racers and then tweaked their products accordingly.

HI Guys! I am BSB Racing. I have been at it with a vengence for about 10 months now. My granddaughter got me started 2 years ago with her Awana Race. Since the first race we went from 13th, 8th, to 1st place this year! I have learned a lot from the forum and from meeting and talking to fellow racers. The best way to learn is to ask questions..........plenty of questions! The BSB stands for Bandsaw Bill a nickname my co-workers gave me! (long story!) Some people think the BS part stands for something other than Bandsaw..........it's not true! I have been a tool and die maker/machinst for the last 43 years and this hobby was a perfect fit for me. Tinkering is what makes me tick! So hopefully now you know a little more about me. Hopefully some of you will post a little about yourself so we all can know who we are talking to.
Looking forward to reading the forum and talking PINE!
