Finally, after a brief 2-and-a-half months, I've finished Race 8. Sorry, had a number of disruptions lately! The big post on page 3 is updated with the links.
One thing I've began to notice with this race is leg departures that were significantly displaced from the previous pitstop without any acknowlegement of such, specifically in Panama. So I've began to make note of them.
I hope to get Race 9 done by the end of the year, if the holidays don't interfere too much.
