This is not the first reference to Belfast that I see! I'm going back to fetch what I read before...

Could be right, we know they were spotted in cars, so could have driven across to the west coast of Scotland, then got a ferry across to Belfast from either Cairnryan or Troon.

This is the NIE building at the Belfast docks. As NIE was mentioned in LIVE thread.

If they were near the docks, could have had something to do with the Titanic as it's 100 years since the voyage and it was built there.

If they are self-driving and in Belfast, this could mean flights back to the US from Shannon.

Probably not, Shannon only connects to JFK and Newark.

Pure spec,

for whatever reason, if edinburgh turns out to be our TAR route, then there might be some sort of connection on why the pit stop is at berlin christmas market...

maybe it's the clue to their next destination, because in Edinburgh, there is also a German Christmas Market happening too!!  :ascared


weihnachtsmarkt : Berlin Christmas Market (Alexanderplatz)








weihnachtsmarkt : German Christmas Market (Edinburgh, United Kingdom)









and if teams were driving, there's a possibility for 3hrs30mins drive to the Loch Ness lake.... maybe pit stop  :cmas19




Don't ever put {hashtag} '#amazingrace' if you don't want to be chased by RFF's TAR Detectives 8)

from :MC: to I'm The King of The World!!!  :hearts:  Yup, and there's one place in Belfast that have a museum dedicated to that ship: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanic_Belfast  And probably the 4 remaining teams will have a moment of silence there in commemoration to the victims of the sinking of Titanic that happened a hundred years ago before they'll resume their leg. :cmas16

I do believe there are 2 legs in Botswana, or they went to Zambia/Namibia after that.  So, these might be my speculations for the TAR 22 legs:

Leg 1: Los Angeles to Tahiti
Leg 2: Tahiti to Bora Bora
Leg 3: Bora Bora to Queenstown, New Zealand
Leg 4: Queenstown, New Zealand to Bali, Indonesia
Leg 5: Bali, Indonesia to Hanoi, Vietnam
Leg 6: Hanoi, Vietnam to Botswana
Leg 7: Botswana/Namibia/Zambia
Leg 8: Botswana/Namibia/Zambia to Jungfrau, Switzerland
Leg 9: Jungfrau, Switzerland to Berlin, Germany
Leg 10: Berlin, Germany to Edinburgh, Scotland
Leg 11: Edinburgh, Scotland to Belfast, NI
Leg 12: Belfast, NI to Boston or Washington DC

And sadly there's no new country that'll visit for TAR 22, and even my country, Philippines didn't visit as well just like the previous season.  And that's sucks!!! (:;)

It's possible that they did a task in Edinburgh,then move to Belfast to continue racing.like TAR20 Leg11 in Japan.
I still think Hanoi will have 2 legs.

Pure Spec, but if Northern Ireland is true, I wouldn't be surprised to see some type of Golf detour or road block. For such a small country, its amazing how good some of the golfers they produce are. Just like TAR visiting Rafa Nadal's tennis courts in Spain, I think we might see something similar with the home town of Rory McIlroy. Its not like there is an incredible amount of things Northern Ireland is more well known for.

Besides, how cool would it be for a clue to say head to Hollywood for the contestants to think they are headed back to the United States instead to later find out that Hollywood is a town in Northern Ireland.

Just a thought on a possible roadblock or detour.

There is a new country this season. Its French Polynesia  :cmas22

Botswana was visited in season 1, leg 2 as one half of a detour. It was during that part of that leg after teams left Songwe Village and before teams went back to Johannesburg to get flights to Paris.

Does Belfast have direct flights to usa?

The only direct flights are to Newark on United (connect to anywhere from EWR) and seasonal service to Orlando-Sanford on Monarch.  The other airport in Belfast is George Best Belfast City Airport, which has flights to connect thru Heathrow and Gatwick to the US from there.

I was going to say that too but noticed they did 2 legs in S7 as well.

I don't think any teams took that side of the detour though

I don't think they did either, but I remember the wood sign with "Botswana" on it that was used to show where that half of the detour was.

Could we get a finish in Orlando maybe?

There's not much daylight time right now to run a final leg if it hasn't already started or finished (and if that were the case I think there would be a sign) so it would more than likely start tomorrow morning. The main issue is that in most metropolitan areas on the East coast, Friday mornings are particularly busy so the chance of sightings go up visibly. Orlando, and more specifically, the theme parks around Orlando, are less crowded this time of year plus they could easily close down parts of theme parks to house tasks or the finish line.
