Jun Senoue on Team Sonic Racing Original Soundtrack:
A course set on an active volcano that lurks deep within the icebergs. If you’re driving on a scorching-hot road, you’ll find yourself on a frozen road before long, or choosing between a fork; I wanted to express the tense feeling of a course where you have to watch your step, so I added a punk rock taste. Because it’s so straightforward, you should be able to see how the three instruments (= three players = a team) intertwine and fill in each other’s gaps. From start to goal, the concept of running with tension is similar to Green Forest from Sonic Adventure 2, at least to me.
