This route has 10 legs - fake

But I do like the idea of them visiting Denmark, Paraguay, Angola and Serbia.

If you were a race planner for WRP....you would be fired for proposing that route.

Yes, Doc, that was my initial thought. Either this Marcel is a troublemaker or whoever posted this on another forum is a trouble maker. It does look like someone found a blank map of the world, colored in some countries, and drew some lines on MS paint.

First and foremost.....WRP is a commerical, money makng enterprise.....routes have to be practical.

So far a little exercise, while the forum is slow.....go to Travelocity.com or any booking site you want and try to book that part of the race from Paraguay to Denmark. See where you actually go and how much it costs for ONE person.....then think of how many people WRP is paying for .......it will be an eyeopener.

Belgrade Asuncion to Luanda to Cairo (though it could be Alexandria) to Belgrade to Copenhagen...........just see where all you would have to fly to do that.

Thank you for checking the possibility of the route for us, Doc!

Or Burkino Faso - Lithuania  :cmaslol

Paraguay to Angola. There is however no flights between the cities. Although I don't believe this route I like the route because they would be visitng new countries.


Then Cairo to Belgrade then Belgrade to Cairo is about the third of the cost from France-Seychelles or Tanzania-Poland.

For TAR 16, I suspect greatly that the leg in the Seychelles was at least partly financed on the Seychelles' end. Moreover, the Seychelles are fairly well connected to Asia, which provides a good way to get a fifth continent without going all the way to Oceania.

With the TAR 12 example, they already saved a good deal of money by eliminating two legs (plus having the two Burkina legs in the same area), thus, they could afford the flight frenzy to Lithuania.

With the TAR 11 example, they were far more likely to spend money to get an "All-Star" race (ie elegant lunches in salt mines, all the rented vehicles, the various intra-South American flights).

Would you like to share the link?

Now we know these are definitely fake, so y'all can have fun with your fantasy routes, but don't take them seriously.

Peach is right...Marcel keeps logging off whenever they are asked important questions, and besides, these routes cannot be logically verfied, as DrRox found.

Even more reason not to believe this guy!
However, they are doing casting calls for 19 as we speak.

That's a good point. CBS has released the TAR19 application, too.

It's one thing to post fantasy routes; that's what this thread is about. But it's another thing to post routes and try to pass them off as being official.

(On the other hand, I'm applying for TAR21, so thanks for the heads-up! :lol: )

Why not TAR 19 or TAR 20?
