The name of a shmup has escaped me for too long, so time to ask smart people. Thought it may have been Gekirindan or Batsugun, but doesn't appear to be the case.

It's vertical/arcade. I believe I'm remembering the last level, which starts out in something like a jousting arena, or something out of the middle ages, with fans cheering you on in the stands on either side. It's a festive atmosphere - on the charming/not so serious side.

I also believe I remember a cowboy character as one of the pilots you could choose.

Ring any bells?

Thanks, Digmac. I had a feeling I was confusing more than one game in my mind's eye - a game I played on a cabinet, and a game I saw a video of. This likely explains it: there are (at least*) three games in the series.

Mahou Daisakusen - Sourcer Striker
Shippu Mahou Daisakusen - Kingdom Grandprix
Great Mahou Daisakusen - Dimahoo

Its a racing game disguesed as a shooter. I don't know of any other game that explores that concept.
