When will race start?
« on: September 20, 2010, 11:24:33 AM »
I know that everything is taped in advance. When do they normally start racing for the seasons that start in February, like this one? In the past when have their been sightings of teams? Thanks.

For previous seasons that premiered in February or March filming started:

Season  Film Start  Location                                     Film End    Location                                         Length Premiere Date
TAR 16  2009-11-28  Los Angeles, CA, (Vista Hermosa Park)        2009-12-20  San Francisco, CA, (Candlestick Park)            22     2010-02-14
TAR 14  2008-10-31  Los Angeles, CA, (Los Alamitos Naval Base)   2008-11-22  Maui, HA, (King Kamehameha Golf Club)            22     2009-02-15
TAR 11  2006-11-20  Miami, FL, (Charles Deering Historic Estate) 2006-12-17  San Francisco, CA, (SF Botanical Garden)         27     2007-02-18
TAR 9   2005-11-07  Morrison, CO, (Red Rocks Amphitheatre)       2005-12-03  Morrison (Denver), CO (Red Rocks Park)           26     2006-02-28
TAR 7   2004-11-20  Long Beach, CA, (Queen Mary Museum Ship)     2004-12-19  Fort Lauderdale, FL, (Bonnet House)              30     2005-03-01
TAR 2   2002-01-08  Pahrump, NV                                  2002-02-05  Sausalito, CA (Murray Circle on East Fort Baker) 28     2002-03-11   

If you throw out TAR 2 as an anomaly, using past seasons as a guide, I would guess sometime between October 29 and November 27 to start.

TAR 4 was originally planned for spring 2003, but got delayed. It was filmed between mid-January and as shown in the finale, completed filming on February 14th, 2003.

Some past seasons were filmed during Thanksgiving, but I think the race won't be filmed during Christmas, so teams/crew could spend time with their families.

Here are the filming dates for the other spring aired seasons:

TAR 16: November 28, 2009 December 20, 2009 (started on Sat)

TAR 14: October 31, 2008 November 21, 2008 (started on Fri)

TAR 11: November 20, 2006 December 17, 2006 (started on Mon)

TAR 9: November 7, 2005 December 3, 2005 (started on Mon)

TAR 7: November 20, 2004 December 19, 2004 (started on Sat)

Any seasons older than that did not follow the current pattern.

Note that they are always done by Christmas and that they only recently stopped the practice of filming on Thanksgiving. TAR 14 was done by Thanksgiving and TAR 16 waited until after. The three "spring seasons" before that all filmed on Thanksgiving.

Also the filming always begins at the beginning or end of a week never in the middle. This is probably to make it more convenient for those taking vacation weeks.

My bet for starting this year is Nov. 26-29.

Even though TAR 18 hasn't started yet - I wouldn't leave the house without my camera right now.
Its an exciting time to be a TAR detective...
TAR Australia is currently filming and they could go anywhere - including North America.
There is no hard evidence on the start date of TAR 18 - but I would assume sooner rather than later.

Best to be prepared right now!  :waves:

AusTAR seems to be going East to West, so N. America wouldn't be for a while, I imagine.

long-time lurker, possibly my first post here, but I'm hoping we catch something on our travels - we're heading to Australia from the UK, via Dubai at the end of this month... though it's a Tuesday.. wonder what our chances are. (our flight isn't full yet, either) I'm keeping everything crossed, anyway! Oh and cameras charged and ready, just in case!

I'm in London in late November, but that's one season too late. :( Going to Poland in December, a few seasons too late, although it's such a big country and they've only really scratched the surface so hopefully they'll go back. I am planning a trip to Malta next fall, I hope TAR does too.

I wasn't talking about TAR Australia - if you meant me. Just that I might catch them on my travels, if they're heading in that direction. No biggie, just thought I'd post. The speculation so far seems to indicate it's happening at the end of November, and that's when we start travelling - if Gatwick or Dubai are involved in the first few days, there's every chance we might see something - though I can't imagine Australia would be - but you never know. (ha, or maybe we'll catch TAR Australia coming back?)

I think the race will start tomorrow... :hearts: :hearts:
Because the  12 of december there will be the final party of tar 17 ....and isn't possible that Phil ,the crew and other won't be there
Tomorrow is 20 november....about 20 -21 days...the race will finish  just in time for final party..


That is a really good deduction to keep in mind. I don't know how some of us didn't think of that.  :tup:

What? You weren't personally invited? Must have been an oversight.
I just figured someone would have spilled the beans, man.  :neener:

I think they were referring to TARCon - held in NY on the day of the finale. Be great to see you there.
