Could this be the first PitStop?
The fort at Old Sarum
http://search.visitbritain.com/en-AU/Details.aspx?ContentID=133819

Quote
Discover the story of the original Salisbury and take the family for a day out to Old Sarum, 2 miles north of where the city stands now. The mighty Iron Age hill fort was where the first cathedral once stood and the Romans, Normans and Saxons have all left their mark.

Today, 5,000 years of history are told through graphic interpretation panels on site. Families, heritage lovers and walkers can enjoy a great value day out at Old Sarum- you could even bring a picnic and enjoy the fantastic views across the Wiltshire countryside. The gift shop has a delicious range of ice-creams and exclusive English Heritage gifts and produce. Wooden bows and arrows are also on sale to help the kids imagine what life was like all those years ago!

Do you have evidence for this...I am behind and stuck at work?? ???

If not, perhaps it can go to speculation?

There's a bunch of tweets that have come in from Stonehenge (No location listed for the tweeter, though. Use your spidey-sense, Peach!)

Most relevant to destinations are:

Perhaps.  An eyewitness claims he spotted the black guys in orange and a women's team in pink in Luxembourg's airport.

Well, I haven't gotten a response from this Australian tourist after a request for more info, but here is a little extra confirmation of Stonehenge (in case anyone was doubting):  :lol:

Saw Stonehenge this morning. Were filming the amazing race there.

I can confirm that this guy is 100% legit. :drama

I don't think Stonehenge was in doubt, but I can absolutely confirm the teams were headed there. I sat right next to them as they used my laptop to look up driving directions from Heathrow.

The Amazing Race isn't that big a thing here in Britain. It's only shown on 2 really obscure channels that generally don't get many viewers and it's usually the same seasons over and over again.

No it can not! Iti si still speculation. :pull  POSSIBLE only. Do you have a photo? A film permit? Several reliable sightings? A personal response that is trustworthy?

I think it is very likely, but that doesn't count. Don't jump ahead...right now we are fact finding. All in good time. :lol:

Until there are pictures that can confirm it, it's nothing but speculation.

Amazing Race 17 now taping, cast identified, includes four beauty queens
The Amazing Race 17 »   
by Andy Dehnart / June 2, 2010, 3:26 PM 

Quote
The Amazing Race 17 started production a week ago today, and already, several of the teams and their destinations have been identified.

The teams were heavily photographed when the race began last Wednesday in Boston, which is a nice change from the series of Los Angeles starts. As always, the frighteningly resourceful Reality Fan Forum posters have identified several of the teams. (The site is also compiling sightings from around the world and possible eliminations in this timeline thread, which obviously contains spoilers.)

Continuing with the beauty queen kick that the producers seem to be on (Ericka, Caite), the cast includes not one but four beauty queens/pageant winners/whatever. Four! According to the site, they are Mallory Ervin, Miss Kentucky, who’s racing with her dad; Miss South Carolina Stephanie Smith, who’s paired with her boyfriend; and Mrs. Colorado 2009 Megan Yarberry and her friend Mrs. Nebraska 2009 Jennifer Hart.

Among the other racers is YouTube star KevJumba, Kevin Wu, is racing with his father, and a team of two Princeton grads who are members of the a cappella group the Nassoons. The University Press Club has details and interviews with Connor Diemand-Yauman and Jonathan Schwartz.

Yep, we goofed. :(

Amazing Race 17 may only have two beauty queens after site retracts team ID
 
by Andy Dehnart / June 7, 2010, 2:32 PM
 
Quote
The web site that tracks and attempts to identify Amazing Race contestants has retracted its identification of two beauty queen contestants, which means there may be just two instead of four beauty queens on the 17th season.

A note posted in the cast identification thread says, “RFF regrets to say that this identification may be incorrect, so these names will be removed while we investigate further. We do sincerely apologize to both women if we have caused either them or their families any distress.” They’re no longer confident in their identification of Mrs. Colorado 2009 Megan Yarberry and her potential teammate, Mrs. Nebraska 2009 Jennifer Hart. The discussion of the possible misidentification goes into greater detail.

With three independent corroborations...seems like it is safe to add  Camp Casey, Doungduchon, Korea to the list.
