I was watching TAR7 second leg on Botswana, and this is the only water tank I found similar:

This tank appeared when the teams were going to Sanyuko Village, passing through Maun.

The water tanks don't look exactly the same. The ones in our promo has a white top while the one in S7 is still blue.

We're talking about the similarity of the shape.

I hope we will see that water tank in HD tonight, LOL!

If anyone sees any NCAA TAR promos or anything new from the YouTubers, let me know!!

Have we found out what air strip they are landing or taking off from?

There is the Larger airport Maun to the north of the Kalahari reserve.

I noticed that  Limpopo-Lipadi game reserve has an interesting air strip.

Those tanks could be holding things other than water, such as grain or fuel, depends on what is the typical design in that area.

But I agree those are tanks.

Sorry, I thought I posted these? Includes "Wabbit Tower" :lol:

Sneak Peek Caps...maybe someone can get a time off of Caroline's watch?? And the fifth cap shows what may be another team in the upper left corner already there...

Not too sure if this is the place to put it, but, for posterity's sake, the Pit Start was Vườn Hoa Nhà Hát Lớn.  The building in the background is the Hanoi Opera House and it is adjacent to the Pitstop Hotel, the Hilton Hanoi.

Pam & Winnie were shown at Mã Mây, which is in the Tourist District(ish) of Hanoi.

.... and I'm out, until TAR's next stop in penninsular Southeast Asia!  haha!

They probably cut that out because it was time-consuming and it didn't really affect placements.

I wonder if they took it out because of all the Hanoi controversy? Lol, the reason is probably just as simple as it not affecting anything.

Or they used up the time with the apology. Agreed, not important...

They cut the route info task in the nightclub in Hanoi. That pitstart seems shady for me since they didn't see the face of the racers while read it.

Haha, thanks, it makes me feel worthwhile!  However, I am just not as good as the rest of the RFF sleuths unless if it's a place I've been to a million times!

The apology at the beginning was less than 15 seconds, and I'm doubtful that anyone who doesn't watch the episode on CBS will ever see it. I'll know tomorrow when I get the I-Tunes download of the episode.

Still now wabbits?   :lol3:

I got the wrong airstrip because I'm an idiot!  Gaa

The feature I was locked onto finding was not the airstrip but it turns out to be an intersecting roadway!   :tantrum

Here is the GE tilt view that really does match:

Good. Now find that road and those towers.

We got Maun right but after that we didn't have a clue! :lol3:
