You may be looking for Formation Change Gate from Sonic Heroes.

The Transformation Gate is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are gates which mark a location where racers' vehicles change modes during races.

Description

A Transformation Gate is simply a circular blue frame. It does not have any specific shape, and is "docked" in some parts of the race tracks.

Overview

In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Transformation Gates appear at various specified points on each track. Once a racer steers their vehicle through the gate, their vehicle will transform into one of its three alternate forms: car, boat, or plane. The form that the vehicle transforms into will depend on the layout of the racing track that lies beyond the Transformation Gate.

If the player performs a stunt in mid-air after passing through the Transformation Gate and successfully makes the landing, their vehicle will perform a "Transform Boost", granting a temporary boost of speed to the player.

Transformation Gates appear in every track except those in the Classic Cup, as the tracks in that cup are returning tracks from Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, which lacked the Transformation Gates.
