Race of AGES is a race track in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and the final track of the Arcade Cup.
This track aims to be a tribute to Sega history as well as to characters from the first Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing game that did not return. The player's on-screen map is jammed throughout the race, though the map displayed on the Wii U GamePad and the 3DS touch screen are unaffected.
Racers drive along a very twisty neon road with guard rails missing at points that makes falling off an easy mistake; thus it is one of the most technical tracks in the game. Along the way, drivers will reach a fork in the road with holograms of a Wave Runner jet ski and an After Burner fighter jet. Only the racer in first place gets to choose which route the racers will go through by driving on the right and left sides respectively.
If the leader chooses the jet ski hologram, racers will switch to boat mode and navigate a flooded part of the city filled with trick ramps, electrical gates and holographic statues of past Sega All-Stars before returning to land. If the leader chooses the fighter jet hologram, racers will switch to plane mode and fly straight down the city avoiding electroshock grids, spinning structures and holograms of Sega game consoles, before entering a tube leading to the finish line. The track resets after completing a lap.
The holographic characters found on this track include Ryo Hazuki, Akira Yuki, the Bonanza Bros., the ChuChus, Opa-Opa, a Striker from Virtua Striker, a bike from Hang-On, and Squilla and Harrier himself from Space Harrier. Segata Sanshiro carrying a giant Sega Saturn on his back can be seen riding the rocket from his final commercial around the boat section of the track.
The music that plays here is a remix of the Space Harrier theme.
