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.

AMAZING!! Most do not know Hillside Husky, however his car designs and paint are arguably some of the finest works of art ever seen in pinewood derby. His full bodied cars were built to be 100% realistic, building the cars to the full size tolerance allowed. Sidewalls and fenders built to exact spec so as to create realism. If that was not good enough his paint schemes and glass like finish rival that of any show car. Although he never raced in proxy leagues his cars were the model for one league to create an entire race division devoted to full bodied pine cars.
