Cars Race-O-Rama is a racing game that was released on October 12, 2009. Cars Race-o-Rama is the sequel to Cars Mater-National Championship, which was released on October 27, 2007. The PSP and DS versions of the game were created by Tantalus Media in Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia. A toy line for the release was released in early 2009, as the name "Race O Rama" was used for the 3rd series of Mattel Die-Cast Disney Cars. This is the last Disney/Pixar video game published by THQ as well as the last game to be published by any other company except Disney Interactive.


In Cars Race-O-Rama, players will join Lightning McQueen and Chick Hicks in Radiator Springs as they prepare their academy of student racers to compete in the Race-O-Rama Exhibition.


The game has a couple new and old areas.

1: Radiator Springs - A small town located in Carburator County. It is considered the home of most Cars casts.

2: Ornament Valley - The Gateway to Radiator Springs and Tailfin Pass. From "Cars Mater-National Championship" it had an Airport and seemed more developed; But as seen in Race-O-Rama it is back to its original state.

3: Tailfin Pass - The Cadillac Mountain Range is located in this area. The landscape is mostly pine trees, mountains, waterfalls, and rock formations. The Wheel Well Hotel over looking Radiator Springs and Ornament Valley is located in this area.

4: Radiator Springs Speedway - An area where racing cars raced. The area is the first and last area of the game.

5: Santa Carburera: A city located on an island. It is seen on the front cover of the video game, and is based on Santa Monica Beach.

6: Autovia - A desert type area with mines and few businesses. It seems impossible to get in or out of the area since the main highway is covered with rocks.

7: Motoropolis - An area where most expressways are located. It is shown at nighttime. Might be Motor City from the original Cars game "Cars"


All versions of the game received mixed reviews, according to Metacritic.
