Baron Rosso is a character that exclusively appears in the video game LEGO Racers 2. In the final game, he is an opponent on Dino Island, Mars and the Arctic and on Sandy Bay in the arcade mode, and isn't named in-game, only in his texture files. However, in an earlier version of the story, he was the game's main villain:

There were some changes to the plot from what we originally were going with. In the shipped games story mode you took on a series of bosses to improve your car in order to travel to Xalax to take on Rocket Racer. Our original plot idea had Rocket Racer more as a mentor figure to the player, and the games villain was actually an evil corporate guy whose name I forget. (His model is still in the game, he’s the guy in the red pinstripe suit in the sandy bay levels) I think Lego were keen to keep Rocket as the final goal. Our art team did get permission to change his look at least, they gave him a racing suit based on Evel Knievel.
Frankie Solido also likely has some relation to him, but Frankie's role in this early story is unknown.
