** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' has one per region except Ikana Canyon. Notably, Link can take advantage of one of his physical forms in each: Deku Scrub in the race ''with'' (not against) the Butler in Deku Palace, Goron in the spring race in Snowhead, human with Epona in the horsetrack race in Milk Road, and Zora in the Waterfall Rapids ring race. Downplayed with the Doggy Racetrack in Romani Ranch, as it's the dogs which participate in the race and Link can only bet which one is going to win (he can get reliable hints about the winner by using the Mask of Truth).
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' has the Yeti race in Snowpeak.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' has the Whip Race, where Link has to clear an obstacle course with the help of his whip in a time limit. A standard run rewards him with a Bomb Bag upgrade, while beating a certain record will net him a HeartContainer.

* ''VideoGame/JetForceGemini'' has two racing minigames: The first is in Mizar's Palace, and to participate in it Juno or Vela has to transform into a Drone insect; reaching first place nets one of the 12 ship parts necessary to reach the final level. The second minigame is a GameWithinAGame available in Ichor, playable through an arcade found in the game room of a discoteque (once again, the character has to transform into a Drone insect), and it's optional. If the Floyd mission in Ichor is beaten with a Gold or Expert medal, a chip will be earned and installed within the arcade to play a harder version of the racing minigame.

* '''The World Is Your Grand Prix:''' Whoever or ''whatever'' challenged the player character to race makes it from Point A to Point B on whatever map you're already on. Sometimes it's in the HubLevel, but it can occur within a level or dungeon, as well. While your character may be on foot, they may also have a vehicle--either part of their usual arsenal, or provided for them--in order to provide them extra speed. Since most maps tend to be somewhat... ''larger'' than your standard race course, the game will frequently provide some sort of "marker" to keep you on course, usually with penalties if you stray too far. The markers can range from a simple line on the ground to actually making the player ''lose'' if they don't [[PassThroughTheRings pass through every ring.]]

* ''VideoGame/MafiaTheCityOfLostHeaven'' has a single level in which the player must cover for a racecar driver the Don has bet on. It's a ScrappyLevel due to the frailty (as in, tip over and you die, no exceptions) and unstable nature (as in, turn around a corner or hit a slight bump at anything but low speed and you will likely tip over) of the car and the difficulty in traversing the track safely while staying ahead of the racers, but, luckily, there's a secret area that allows you to skip the lap and finish it with ease.

* ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call of Duty 4]]'' had this at the end of the level "Crew Expendable" where the player must escape the sinking ship. Basically, it is a timed race where you follow your allies, but as they inevtably outpace the player audio cues over the radio and general memory of the level already traveled through becomes very important. Even at the end you have to jump into the back of a helicopter but don't worry, "Nobody makes the first jump..."
