Okay, this is sort of a bitch and moan.

But i thought they should be focused on costs savings for the race now that TAR is being filmed in HD?

How come they're going to Japan this early.. for 2 times in 3 seasons?

And this is our fourth (I think) visit to Japan already?? I thought we only had Philippines visited once before.. how come they pass right by Philippines entirely?! :duno:

I'm not sure if the Phillipines is a very condusive environment. What does 1 do there?

What about Jordan & Caite (I think they became good friends by the end of last season)

Jordan of Jordan\Jeff or Jordan of Dan\Jordan?

Because it has beautiful scenery and it's more probable that they find people trained to use HD equipment?

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

You realise that they haven't touched Indonesia even after 17 seasons (come to think of it, I've not even heard of any [US] team in history that had a layover in their airports...), despite having every season passing Asia (definitely; it's a TAR staple with at least 3 legs), and 10 out of 17 seasons (no-visits in 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 17) visiting at least 1 country within Southeast Asia.

I'm even surprised that Singapore (my country of residence) was visited twice; never thought it would EVER be visited again after Season 3...

The problem is, one never knows when a natural disaster will hit Indonesia.

I think the show's reluctance to go to Indonesia is security based more than natural disaster based. No one really knows, though. And that's odd considering that TARA apparently has used locales in Indonesia several times.

Hmm, then this season will just be a season where TAR will just visit places which are beautiful so that the people can be "trained to use HD equipment"? No India, Africa or any other less developed countries? I know Japan is a good location.. but passing through another country which they only visited once is kind of saddening. And of course, Indonesia.. i wonder when they'll finally visit that country.

That's true, and doesn't really help with the confusion.

Colombia has been visited by TARLA before and it hasn't been touched by TAR. Conclusion: there are different security standards for different versions of TAR.

1 of the main things I want to complain about regarding TAR 18 is the fact that Azaria and Hendekea from TAR 12 were not even invited. They were a strong team who needed a 2nd chance b\c they were eliminated as a result of a bad flight.

That happens to a lot of teams that end up getting eliminated. To be fair, not as drastic, but it happens. I can't blaim the producers for not inviting back Azaria & Hendekea. They were strong but not a team I think stands out from the other characters of that season. We all have our favorites though.

It is true that the extremely smart brother and sister did not have an appealing storyline. They were just a good team and were not painted as anything more b\c they did not last long enough to count. They definitely don't have enough of a following to return.

I'm not certain that not going to the Philippines has to do with HD equipment.

TARA4 went there, and I'm not 100% sure because I only watch it on youtube, but I believe that TARA4 was the second version of the franchise to film in HD.  (TAR China Rush was the first.)

The main thing I want to complain about right now is the fact that the Japanese citizens have allowed the Racers to race right under their noses.

I don't have much to complain about, but I have to say I am a bit annoyed with Jaime and Cara's inclusion. Yes, I understand they probably wanted a strong F/F team, but Jaime is just painful to watch.
