Best Loser:
^^^Are you using Google Earth? I'm not sure how well Google Maps uses the kmz files.

Are there any more?

I uploaded a file on the top of the second page of the pitstops from the foreign editions where I tried to get as exact as possible, but there are quite a few that I have wrong (I marked them with red and included a short reason, if I recall correctly). Not nearly as many points as what you've done, so I'm pretty impressed that someone took the time to do what you did.

It wasn't all done at once, heh. It's been a running project ever since I joined the TAR fandom.

And yeah hotriceguy, I'd suggest getting Google Earth to view these. It's free.

Neobie:
Wow, I've forgotten about this thread for a while, but great job GB! I'll spend some time looking over to compare it with what I and you have!

Hay dood!

lol, I don't doubt for a single second that there'll be something that's wrong. A lot of something :P

But if you compare the numbers, there's still a lot right  :-[

Neobie:
Checked my "hometowns" of Hong Kong, Singapore, Chicago, and Cambridge; looking good!

Two edits to the Hong Kong maps:
1. Herbal Tea in TAR 2 was on 53 Reclamation St (remembering the street number after 10 years; but I think it's correct), on Kowloon between Saigon and Pak Hoi Sts, not Aberdeen.
2. The tram detour in TAR 19 was on the north side of the island, starting at Hennessy Rd and Queen's Rd E and turning around at the tram roundabout/terminus at the junction of Yee Wo St and Leighton Rd.

I think there was an unaired location in the Chicago finale where the Chicago Fire started... Can someone else verify?

I couldn't access the TAR 16 maps (bounced to TAR 15)... Do you mind checking the link?
