This thread is for discussion of TAR 17 confirmed or very likely locations based on spoilers, not for speculation or wish lists please.

Speculation goes HERE .




Pending the opening of the new episode threads, I'll be including all new promos here!

We believe that TAR 17 will be departing from an EAST COAST city and traveling in an easterly direction.

Once we are sure that the race is safely underway and that the starting line has occured, we will release more info on the start city and the believed destination city. Until then, watch those tweets!

:hearts:


all speculation to one of the spec threads please....

The Gloucester Sea Jacket Marine Paints Manufactory puts the boats in the straits between the Inner and Outer Harbors.

(I know, I haven't updated the TAR 16 maps yet, give me until my school term ends!)

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Oh, cool!  I knew it was in the U.K., but wasn't sure which of the four countries it was!

Anyway, that's just great they'll be in the United Kingdom first!  Why, we haven't been there since the awesome, donkey-caused elimination of Ari & Staella in TAR12!

To newbies joining us this season: welcome!  :waves:

A lot of information will come in over the next few weeks and it's easy to miss stuff or get confused. If you need a quick refresh, you can check out the first post of the Timelines thread -- it is updated pretty regularly. Have fun!

Where did the STONEHENGE info come from, London may still a transit point.

It's called information that they have and we don't (at least not until they publicly share it).

UK Airports are not closed.  London's two major airports Heathrow & Gatwick have delays due to the British Airways strike.

How to get to Stonehenge from Heathrow:

Road seems to be the most feasible method, as both train and bus stops are a few miles from Stonehenge.

Follow signs to the M4 West.
Continue for about 2 miles and come off at junction 4b onto the M25 South bound.
Follow the signs for Gatwick Airport. From the M25, exit at junction 12 for the M3 motorway towards Basingstoke.
Once on the M3 follow it to junction 8 signed A303 Andover.
Continue on the A303 ALL the way until you reach a roundabout.
Go straight over this and 2 miles on bear right onto the A344 and the car park is on the right hand side about 500 metres on.


Opening times
Spring
1 Apr to 31 May
09.30 - 18.00

So there will probably be a time equaliser for all the teams waiting for it to open, unless the 2nd flight is delayed sufficiently that they don't make it there before 9:30am

Extra Notes:
Except on special or arranged occasions, visitors are unable to walk amongst the stones

*wonders if WRP might have arranged for access for the teams?

There's no decent Stonehenge webcams I could find; the few search hits I got led to joke sites.

There were webcams somewhere in the area when Doctor Who filmed part of its finale for the current season in Stonehenge earlier this year. You may need to check for locales around Stonehenge and not at Stonehenge.

I can't believe some people didn't know what Stonehenge was haha! Are there any ways of 'watching' Stonehenge? Anyone from London?
