The Transformation Gate is a gimmick that appears in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. They are gates which mark a location where racers' vehicles change modes during races.
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.
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.

- It is possible to bypass Transformation Gates, but patches in some version of the game will prevent this from happening.
