We heard this was challenging to find the motor place, since there were several car-type-operations with the same name. It always LOOKS easier on TV than it actually is! Plus, when you are racing, you're so stressed out and not thinking straight!
I really wished we could watch Amy & Daniel more. There are other teams that aren't as interesting to watch.
Taxi's are a huge part of the show, we like that you have to interact with the locals and there's a sense of luck or fate involved when picking a driver. It wouldn't be the same show if you drove yourselves everywhere.
In Atlanta, we said we didn't want an older driver.... we THOUGHT the young drivers would be faster and more aggressive. We couldn't get anyone to take us and finally went with the older gentleman. It was the best decision we made because he knew all of the roads like the back of his hand, he was so kind and patient with us and ultimately was a huge part of our success. Thanks Ben!!
Reading Amy's interviews, I think they did try mutiple cabs...but I love the self driving and the times where y'all used local transport the best!
Would you have a liked a race where taxis were not allowed?/
