Baby Grand 2 Seater
Up until now, the excitement of Baby Grand racing was something that
could only be enjoyed one person at a time. Now, Baby Grands has built
a 2 seat Baby Grand that will give lots of new people a taste of the
excitement that our drivers enjoy. Here is a FAQ section to explain
1. Why did you build it? - Our plan is to use
the car for corporate rides, promotions at our local track, and as a way to
draw attention to Baby Grand racing.
2. What size rider will fit? - We just built the
car so we haven't set a record yet - but the passenger seat is a size 17 and
we have already put 200+ lb men in the car with no problem.
3. How is the car different from a regular Baby Grand? -
The chassis started out as a regular Baby Grand. We replaced the right
side of the car with a new passenger compartment, raised the halo bar on the
passenger side 2 inches, and stretched the body as much as we could to make
the interior as large as possible. All suspension and drivetrain
locations and parts are stock Baby Grand. The engine is a standard
water cooled Yamaha.
4. How do you get in? - Both driver and
passenger get in the car through their respective windows. On the
passenger side, we made a section of the door flip down to increase the size
of the opening, making it easier for larger or less flexible riders to get
in and out of the car.
5. Where will the car run? - We plan to use it
at our local Beech Bend Raceway, but also to bring it on the road whenever
we have the opportunity.
6. How can I ride? - We are working out the
details now. Our plans are to offer rides for a fee, and also as part
of promotions run by our local track and potential sponsors of the car.
7. How fast does it go? - We have just had it
out on the track for one test session so far. With a 100 lb passenger
the car ran a lap of 17.2 seconds and the track record is 16.8 so the car is
very competitive. We still have some adjustments to make because the
car does need different suspension settings and springs than a regular Baby
8. Who helped with the car? - Building this car
was a true team effort. The car was designed by David Daniels.
The chassis was modified by Phillip Lloyd. The custom interior was
made by Sammy Sanders. The assembly was done by Phillip Lloyd and Jeff
Hazel. We also would like to thank Ultrashield Race Products for
providing the seats and belts for the car, and Aero Race Wheels who built
special offset wheels for the 2 seater.
