Thank you, Hooky and bag, for your clarifiactions. The situation in question is the 9th leg of AR10 at the Helsinki Olympic Tower. I went back and looked at it. it ends with James/Tyler getting a Keep Racing! instruction. Is that a TBC or a superleg? I think it is probably both. I define TBCs whether the action is continuous and you go to a second leg without a pit stop. I don't have a definition for a superleg.

In any case, my memory which told me that there were no TBCs since AR6 was incorrect. I had remembered episode 9 as a double-sized leg, but it isn't. Thank you for the udpate.
I don't even really know after that what exactly is a TBC or a superleg.  :lol: But anyway, I don't think it'll be used because they haven't used it since season 10. If they haven't brought back the yield, I don't think they'll bring back TBCs, anyway, though again it would be nice.

They changed to U-Turns, not speed bumps.

Good job and thanks, Neobie, for linking the Phayathai Palace flag with TAR14! I really had high hopes that it was a flag from the US version. But now I'm jealous that I didn't live in Bangkok/go there before you got the flag! :P

The sharing of info between this site and Sucks is what I've been doing most of the time now... since I really can't help out much with the researching as of present time. Or more like I dunno where to look.  :lol:

Now I'm just waiting for the cast to be revealed... very soon, yes?

Great job and keep up the good work, everyone!   :jam:

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

this place!

It's a huge rush getting from Phuket on the 15th, Bangkok on the 16th, to Guilin on the 17th - but it's possible, and the whole point of the race, isn't it? More info in the timetables thread!





Thanks for the hint Neobie  :lol:

Nice, Puddin! And to all the detectives giving it a try! :tup:

It isn't exactly that building though; I was told something about the Vimanmek Teak Palace, in the same compound, but no photography is allowed inside?!

So I'm not exactly sure if TAR could have got their cameras in too! (A security guard seemed to remember filming in the compound though, the information desk - when I asked them - called up someone, then started pretending to not know anything...)

I was just going to post this, but didn't know where to. I'm pretty sure I saw a bungee jump in the preview.
