The Oman sighting was last Tuesday and the information about South Korea is for next Monday. We're hearing from people who will be in the South Korea activities next week. It should work out well.

It's next Monday? so Seoul maybe the last two-legs city this season.

I think there will be one leg in Korea, then another in a different country.  Followed by the final leg in the US with a intermediate stop like in Hawaii or Alaska.

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!

Actually, Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom. Only Northern Ireland is.

You're too hopeful.
Two legs in Seoul should be interesting, though, seeing that the last visit was TAR 4. (TARA has only had a pitstop in the city.)

It means we're going straight from the penultimate pit stop to the final city, with no Hawaii / Alaska / North American country in between.

correct me if I'm wrong, this is might looks like on TAR 17 legs:

starting point: Eastern Point Yacht Club - Gloucester, Massachusetts
Leg 1: England
Leg 2 & 3: Ghana
Leg 4: Naples, Italy
Leg 5: Sweden - *
Leg 6: Saint Petersburg, Russia - *
Leg 7: Oman - *
Leg 8: Bangladesh
Leg 9: Hong Kong
Leg 10 & 11: South Korea
Final City: Los Angeles, CA

* - will there be another Swithback road block task just like what happened on TAR 15?

Just a friendly reminder that the first post of the timeline thread is a summary of ALL RELIABLE SPOILER info we have so far. It also lists speculation that remains possible. You can always check there if you have a question. :waves:

No Capri.

This season's cast of Racers will travel over 32,000 miles, covering four continents and 30 cities, with first-time visits to Bangladesh, Ghana and the Arctic Circle.  Additionally, for the first time in the history of the Race, the Team to finish in first place during the premiere episode will be awarded a surprise, game-changing advantage.
30 cities? That's a lot of cities. That can't be right, can it?

They might count the cities that the teams pass through (drive through) or maybe cities that have only 1 RI and then move on to the next.

 :waves: yo, tar fans.  anyone else notice the first TAR commercial during BB tonight?  Briefly showed a plane, racers running, a field (possibly Stonehenge), and a medieval knight on horseback holding a jousting lance.  

OK, here's my take on all this:  Stonehenge is on the plains of Salisbury in the county of Wiltshire.  Just so happens there is a knight's training facility at the Druids Lodge Polo Club, also located in the immediate area.  Wonder if they are related.  Feel free to follow this possible lead.

It's kind of interesting that they are going eastward once again considering the fact that TAR 13 and 15 went westward.
