If we didn't already know Brooke & Claire would survive this leg, Brooke's saying the title would be an indication that she & Claire survived.

Not necessarily. Anita said the premiere episode title for TAR 13, but we know they were the first team out.

But in general, getting a title quote is a good sign for a team's survival.

There may be more than just the watermelon catapult task.
In this image I've enlarged a jousting trainer - the object is to hit the fake knights shield and avoid the mace that swings around when you do.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Perhaps its a task where each player has to perform a different thing.  So, Brook could have done the jousting, then Claire the catapult.  Just a thought, but it does make sense that it could be something like that, as they dont usually have a Roadblock in the first leg.

Remember. We have a 90-minute premiere. We have time for both Detours and Roadblocks. :tup:

couldn't it be like the Scotland roadblock in Season 3?

have a handful of tasks that aren't EXTREMELY difficult, but could be time consuming if done improperly

sort of like a medieval knights training thingy

No offense, but since TAR 14, there has been no detours

TAR14: Find the church, Bungee jump and then cheese wheels, and then find yodelers to pit stop.
TAR15: License Plates, Sushi roulette and then guide the tourists to pit stop
TAR16: High wire, paint the town, pit stop.

No offense taken.  You are right.  I had a brain freeze, and should have thought for a moment before I posted. 
Thanks for setting me straight!

In 1984, both the band Slade and the BBC made use of the castle. Slade used it to film their video for Run Runaway and the BBC to film the exterior shots of Abner Brown's theological college in their adaptation of The Box of Delights.

Eastnor Castle  ???

Looks like a great place to run to the pit stop after the watermelon roadblock........

About 70 miles from Heathrow to Stonehenge and then about 80 miles from Stonehenge to Eastnor. Now I think I know why BVM started the race in Gloucester, Ma. On the drive from Stonehenge to Eastnor Castle, you have to drive through Gloucester, England......Just like BVM to throw that in there.
