I think it might be Kisha, talking to the Globes. Sounds like they might be upset with the penalty. She is a basketball player too.

I was thinking either of the TAR15 teams would say this.

ESM = eat, sleep, mingle a reference to what the Racers used to be able to do at the pit stops.  There's no longer any guarantee that teams get to do any or all three activities at pit stops any longer.

You guys never fail to crack me up. :lol3:

I think it's FT/BE saying it at the moment they're pissed with some other teams, meaning they think the others should not try to do some "dirty tricks" to ruin their game? :duno:

So, from the preview it looks like the W-Turn is by a hospital of some kind? the Kunming Red Cross Hospital. Now to find whatever random place near it is housing a W-Turn...(though I think it might be a satellite office of the hospital itself).
