What is the speculated route?

1. Australia-Indonesia
2. Vietnam
3. Philippines
4. China
5. South Africa
6. South Africa?
7. Germany
8. Bat-Yam?
9. Italy
10. Israel
11. Sri Lanka
12. Australia

What about Poland ??? Wasn't Italy just a connecting point to Sri Lanka and Germany just a connecting point to Europe?
Is the Philippines confirmed as a destination or only speculated? ???

I would also think we have 12 legs. A final three (consisting of a red/yellow shirted M/M, a pair of girls in the car - F/F and a late 20's/early 30's couple - M/F) and 3 non-elims would give us 12 legs :tup:


Team bootlist kind of summary, I'm sure I've made a mistake so please help me out if you can :)

Alana & Mel - Indonesia
Anastasia & Chris - Vietnam/China
Anne-Marie & Tracy - Philippines/Vietnam
David & Kelly - Indonesia
Joey & Richard - Vietnam
Jeff & Luke -  South Africa
Matt & Tom - Philippines ???
Mo & Mos -  Philippines/Vietnam
Nathan & Tyler - South Africa
Sam & Renae - South Africa/ Israel ???
Ryot & Liberty - Philippines

So possibly Alana & Mel or David & Kelly are the first team eliminated?

Yes, Alana and Mel and Dave and Kelly look in danger of being our first two teams out...

Also I saw Mo and Mos checking in at the flagged pitstop where the Farmers and the guy with the green pack were running up to as well, and the surrounds look to be S. Africa...is this the case?

Who is this in the car here, Cap #41? I take it that it's from South Africa, are we sure it's not Alana/Mel? If it is, then maybe Kelly & Dave are the first to go?

Possibly, we have one pitstop in South Africa at Rhodes Memorial. Maybe this is the other pitstop?

Anastasia & Chris from the screen grabs look to have been somewhere in Europe doing an archery task. From what I can see so far, this is the furthest a team has been shown from an official source.

Its Mel driving. It probably is South Africa or somewhere else dry given the background - so surely not SE Asia. There is also a new promo out where we see Alana and Mel reading a clue sending them to Cape Town, so that rules them out of being first eliminated and puts them at least midfield.

But isn't Dave and Kelly also reading the clue saying to fly to South Africa at 0.32 on the video ??? Maybe the first leg is a non elim? Or maybe I've stuffed up somewhere  :lol3:

Now based on new promo's etc.
This is how the race is shaping up:

Leg 1: Melbourne etc and Indonesia (non elimination)
Leg 2: Vietnam (Liberty and Ryot eliminated 1st)
Leg 3: Hong Kong and Macau, China (Tracy and Anne-Marie eliminated 2nd)
Leg 4: Johannesburg, South Africa (3rd elimination) and yet how on earth is there an intersection with 9 teams???

Wow this is hard to understand after all these promos:

Tom and Matt - seen enroute to Sri Lanka
Richard and Joey - photo enroute to Johannesburg
Sam and Renae - photo enroute to Johannesburg
Alana and Mel - seen in Jo'Burg and said "Make your way to Cape Town"
Nathan and Tyler - spotted in Jo'Burg
Mo and Mos - seen in promos in desert plains...where is that, Cape Town?
Jeff and Luke - seen in pictures, seen in dunes on buggies etc.
Chris and Anastasia - seen in Archery promo in Germany??
David and Kelly - seen saying "Africa!!"

Anne-Marie and Tracy - spotted last saying "Make your way to Hong Kong"
Liberty and Ryot - spotted last saying "Make your way to Vietnam" at Indonesia pit-start

Perhaps the intersection involves 3 teams of 3.  Any chance channel 7 would film fake promos to keep us all guessing?  Also could be a leg with a double elimination or something new we haven't seen before.

The Intersection is at V&A Waterfront, Cape Town!

So my speculations based on spoilers and past races are:

Leg 1: Melbourne, Australia to Bali, Indonesia
Leg 2: Bali, Indonesia to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Hue, Vietnam - TARA4
Leg 3: Hue, Vietnam to Hong Kong, China to Macau, China  - TARA3
Leg 4: Macua, China to Johannesburg, South Africa - TARA2 and TARI
Leg 5: Johannesburg, South Africa to Cape Town, Africa - TARA2
Leg 6: Cape Town, Africa to Frankfurt, Germany to Prague, Czech Republic to Beroun, Czech Republic - TARA 2
Leg 7: Beroun, Czech Republic to Prague, Czech Republic - TARA2
Leg 8: Frankfurt, Germany to Bat Yam, Israel - Original
Leg 9: Bat Yam, Israel to Colombo Sri Lanka - TARA4
Leg 10: Colombo, Sri Lanka to Galle, Colombo to Ambalangoda, Sri Lanka - TARA4
Leg 11: Sri Lanka to Singapore, Singapore - TARA4
Leg 12: Singapore, Singapore to Fremantle, Australia

If the intersection is Cape Town, then my ideas seem more possible by the minute...

Leg 1: Melbourne and Indonesia (non-elimination)
Leg 2: Vietnam (Liberty and Ryot eliminated in Vung Tau)
Leg 3: Hue, Vietnam? (non-elimination?)
Leg 3/4: Hong Kong for 30mins and Macau, China (Ann-Marie and Tracy eliminated)
Leg 4/5: Johannesburg, South Africa (3rd team Eliminated)
and then Cape Town, where the intersection with 8 occurs!

Can you post your reasoning for each of these please?? I am not getting it.

At the moment this is all speculation, so that is why it is in speculation, but it all fits well enough... :tup:

It is only speculation but the surrounding lake, scenery and architecture looks European...mind you so does the background of the teams saying 'Africa!' and that should be in Macau. Macau does have a Portugese feel in some places though, doesn't it? Or am I mistaken?  :tup:

I have no idea where these shots all are ...yet!! And so it seems way too soon to me to call elims based on caps that we have NOT ID'd yet as being definitively in one country or another...and a we are close but not 100% on the route either. So at this point seems a stretch to me to call an elim order.

Y'all are ahead of me, I am still getting to know the teams though. :lol:

Just want us to be VERY sure before we jump the gun. People look to us for accuracy... and retractions suck!!

This is speculation, Peach. This is the right place to be speculating, you taught me the right place to go to speculate and that's what I am doing. And tbh, it is obvious how the race course is shaping up, and I am pretty sure as to the first 2 teams out as of now. Sadly, I don't think Anne-Marie and Tracy will go past 3/4 Legs!

We can't be certain that it is in Germany, but it is definitely in one of the European legs. The racer is wearing long-sleeved bloused and the trees are without leaves, so that's consistent with shooting in Europe in fall. Also on the back ground we can see buildings beige or yellow in colour, that remind me of the 19th century architectural style that is so predominant in central european countries and I think there is also a tall building that could be a church belltower.

It is definitely European, of course. But I cannot be sure as to where, of course. Just speculation, and it could be Krakow, Poland.

I have heard rumours of Krakow too, the river looks very similar, but I cant find a matching photo or satelite view to confirm it.

No Philippines. I'm sure of that. (Or else I might have been seen in TAR: Oz already!) :lol: (Ok, I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think they visited the Philippines. :angel)
