TAR 22 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
« on: October 25, 2012, 01:07:29 AM »

This is where all the speculation of the TAR 22 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread.
 
**NEW** Let's try keeping all the confirmed LOCATION info together so it is easier to find. So anything about a location we are sure of can go HERE.
 
All info about TEAMS can go in the Contestant thread HERE.

As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to jeopardize a team's chances or to interfere with the start. But if you have info to share before then, we would love to know, so please PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!
 
This thread will be opened once we know for sure the race has begun.

Next Destination appears to be:


Papeete, Tahiti!

Via AIr France and Air Tahiti.
 
 :dancer: :beach:   :dancer:
 
 
Damn. Now I AM jealous!
ah, my wish was granted.  They should race to Australia/South Pacific as their 1st destination and forget about South America, due to TARLA's racing within that continent since their 1st season.  Hopefully they should go to my country, the Philippines after that.  ;)

If Tahiti is true.. and they land the 14th, have time to do the leg, then assumes 12 hour pit stop,
can depart early AM the 15th.

And looking at flightstats, its all random south pacific, Bora Bora, Rarotonga(<3) and other places in French Polynesia.

if its extended pit stop(could be true to get production out of Tahiti to the next locale)

depart late the 15th/midnightish the 16th

They have a 2:00AM flight to Auckland
and a 6:30AM flight to Tokyo

Its most likely gonna be a forced bunched flight, since tbh there isn't as many options.

They can also fly back to LAX, but it wouldn't be in their best interest to drag them through the area again and would be costing more $$$ to. But you never know!

But its gonna get crazy since Tahiti is so stranded(guess they're trying to get out of spoilers, but failed! :b)

Assuming Tahiti is the first destination, then a Race almost completely in the southern hemisphere is a possibility. It would be spring headed into summer, and could see a Race course going to Australia-New Zealand, Africa, and Latin America. Maybe they'll drop by Antarctica on the way. :)

The fact that there's a TAR:LA would not affect where TAR would go, since American television does not air any of the international editions of TAR.

Kandice, I don't think we should think in terms of a "standard" 12 hour pit stop, because there isn't a standard length any longer. We should look for the next stop to be somewhere and somewhen that allows production to get ahead of the teams by a flight but allow all continuing teams to make it out without having delays for an additional day.

Tokyo and New Zealand are the only logical next airports that connect to FAA international airport

Also what a great start line to pick as it was untrackable according to opening times (as its closed on Tuesdays :lol:)

Since it appears its starting in Tahiti, I'm guessing that this season continent line up is like Season 18. Oceania-Asia-Europe-South America-North America.
I'm hoping that this time, there wil be less legs in Asia, and 2-4 legs in South America (I love it when South America gets 4 legs, hasn't been done since Season 11  :'(). These are my speculation first 5 legs.

1. Tahiti
2. New Zealand
3. Philippines
4. Philippines
5. (East Asia)

Interesting to note that they are not crossing the IDL meaning that they will lose a day when they eventually cross over. Is that mean more quicker and shorter legs?

There aren't too many places to head to after Tahiti. I wouldn't be surprised if Europe was skipped this time, as TAR 21 spent a lot of time in Europe, and completely omitted Africa and South America.

They could move back to Chile. There's a flight to Chile from Papeete, right? That would be great!

The only problem with that is that asia will most likely be completely skipped.

I dont think that would happen. There is a direct flight to Auckland from Tahiti if I am not mistaken. From there, they can go to Asia and Europe eventually. It looks like 4-5 continents to me (I predict South America will have a later visit.).
Aslo, I think the race will spend 5-7 legs in Europe/Asia, since we just had a whole season in Europe/Asia.

I have a pretty good guess that Leg 2 is in New Zealand, and maybe Leg 3 somewhere near by do make up time? Again, its spec and might not happen, lol (:

They can get into NZ with these flights (the links are to flightstats)
November 15th
Tahiti -> Rarotonga
12:20PM 15th -> 2:50PM 15th

Then on the 15thstill
Rarotonga to AUCKLAND
Dep 5:30PM 15th ARR 8:50PM 16th(International Date Line is going be rude lol)

They can get in and go around and get their stuff together and do what they do

Then teams fly to Auckland direct using

Tahiti -> AUCKLAND
2:00AM 16th -> 6:55AM the 17th

there's also a little incident this morning at the local airport (FAA)  :o  :ascared

Quote
FAA'A, Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012. This morning a plane of ATR 42 500 Air Tahiti left the airport of Tahiti at 10am at destination Hao (Tuamotu) with 33 passengers on board. After 30 minutes of flight, the captain finds an unusual noise and suspect in the cockpit. The noise intensified in gaining altitude, the captain made ​​the decision to turn around. The aircraft landed without incident at 11:00 on the runway of the airport of Tahiti. Joining the passengers lounge while waiting for a replacement flight. Upon analysis, it appears that the whistle is due to a leak seal windshield right side.

After French Polynesia, I am guessing New Zealand, followed by 3 legs in Asia, 2 in Africa, 3-4 in Europe and a finally returning to the USA with hopes a 11th stop in Cancun.

 :lol:  Seems there's "lots-o-webcams" in Tahiti.  (too bad they show mostly the resorts).   If someone has a lot of spare time, they may spot something.  Here's some webcam links:

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the next leg would be in Japan. As much as I want to, however I would love for them to be in NZ.

New Zealand is probally next, hoping for South Island (Queenstown, Dunedin, or Christchurch). North Island was visited 3 times on three different seasons (2, 5, and 13) and South Island had only one visit (2) and it's way overdue for another. 

-I am speculating 8-10 countries and 4-5 Continents
