I am reasonably sure this leg is a NEL (I'm sure it's been spammed everywhere) for this reason:

We know that Indonesia 1 is a NEL.

TAR never does double NELs anymore.

Indonesia 1 is Leg 9, the last possible leg to have an F5 NEL.

Therefore this leg is a NEL.

Check out the roof of the al-Mina Vegetable Market. But what can you rappel off that's 60m?

The minaret's at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque are 107 m tall but the gallery is  considerably lower - maybe around 60 m?
But I wonder if they would be allowed to rappel off of them.

The car that we see is a Yas Radical SST. It is driven by a professional driver and you can book a ride in it. Here is all the relative information
 http://www.yasmarinacircuit.com/en/experiences/passenger-experiences/yas-radical-sst

Note the restrictions, although I don't think they apply to any of the racers
Quote
Due to the restrictions of this race car, please note our minimum height restriction is 160, maximum height restriction is 188 cm and maximum weight restriction is 105 kg


P.S. According to this http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=sweene001tim
Tim is 6' 3" and that's about 190cm. So Marie is doing this task?

This is the Sun Tower in Yas Marina Circuit


According this article http://www.timeoutabudhabi.com/sportandoutdoor/features/28017-yas-marina-circuit#.UnlFExDcD68

Quote
a 60m-high VIP suite known as Sun Tower ensures unobstructed views for the ‘very important people’,

60m. is about 196.85ft. So teams could rappel from the Sun Tower straight into the circuit and the cars waiting. A RB maybe?

This is only speculation of course.

The two detours could be fix the nets or prepare a disk of dates.

The names around the track are names of Formula 1 drivers and the time underneath are lap times.
The lap record for Yas Marina is 1:40.279 by S Vettel (2009).
I saw in the clip the names of Lewis Hamilton, Mark Webber, Rubbens Barrichelo, Kazuki Nakajima and Jarno Truli. The first three are still racing in F1. I didn't see the name of Sebastian Vettel, but I think that his must be the name they are looking for.
This would be an easy RB for a fan of F1 like me, because all the names are familiar and I can immediately exclude some of them , but for someone who has no idea who these people are it could prove quite difficult.

Okay...missing things:

Is the mosque the first task? Then the yacht? ???

Rapell list
Roadblock list
Detour List

And THIS! A hotel garden? somewhere cool, shady, with water will be a premium in Abu Dhabi.....  Also seen in the Press Pics^^

Possible pitstop! Where's this?

I fully expect BVM to somehow work in Al Ain's #1 tourist attraction (Paradise Gardens) into that weeks episode.

It's the vegetation that makes me second-guess Abu Dhabi; I don't remember seeing that type of luxuriance in the Gulf Area unless it's a carefully-manicured garden, and trawling the internet for photos of gardens in Abu Dhabi don't give a match... It doesn't match the oasis in al-Ain (also called the Palmerie) either; that one's filled with palms, not the trees we see in Jason/Amy's photo nor the garden we see in Jamal/Leo's photo...

The racers don't change their clothes much! Here are photos from the spoiler team in Bandung:

Still don't know where the fishing nets are; here's what we have so far, including my own (intelligent guess, but baseless) speculation for the Pit Stop location. Or at least around that neighbourhood?

Yeah, Heritage Village is likely a match with our pit stop picture..

I speculate this is our regular NEL, there's no way Leo and Jamal didn't change their clothes 'til leg 9 unless they lost it..

Leo & Jamal do not have much clothes to change. On the ferry from Norway to Polan, they have already left most of their belongings and only keep very small bags.

In fact we already had this situation once this season. Chester & Ephraim landed in Lisbon, during their leg #3, after the first two teams had already started leg #4.

Thanks Lutpayy! Now we need to place the Jason/Amy shot. Here it is again:


Looking at clothing, it doesn't match anything we have her in in the upcoming legs...

In the Abu Dhabi leg she has long sleeves:
http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2023%20promos/Ep%207/PREVIEW/23-7-preview-caps0360.jpg

No picture of her in al-Ain just yet.

In Bandung I she doesn't have her hair done up:

In Bandung II she's back to long sleeves, albeit it's at the top of a volcano, so it might be colder:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=28799.0;attach=227167;image

Vegetation-wise it doesn't look like the Middle East to me. Water's at a premium, and any place that's paying to have a pond/river in it probably would have manicured lawns, not the unkempt grass we see. It does remind me of Indonesia a lot more than it does the UAE.

One more thing: Amy's make-up is perfectly intact. It looks like a confessional before the start of a day (any mid-leg bunch-points in Indonesia?), or could it possibly be pre-race?

We haven't got it yet.. Neobie's speculation it could be Emirates Palace or Heritage Village. Our suspected pit stop picture turned out to be Bandung leg.

I am with you all, this could easily be somewhere around the back of the Neptune Fountain:






And re the outfit...her tank top is color coordinated to go with the long sleeve top we see her in in Abu Dhabi....

Here are Jason and Amy at the Pit Stop mat at Schoenbrunn Palace.



Unknown location of Jason and Amy



Obviously different attire in the two photos. But it is certainly possible that Jason and Amy could have changed quickly between the mat and the apparent confessional. That would only involve Jason changing shirts and possible Amy removing her T-shirt. The one thing that tends to make me think the unknown location is not in Austria is the difference in Amy's hair/make-up. The unknown location photo, to me, just screams of a pre-leg confessional/interview. Maybe it is in Vienna, Before heading to Abu Dhabi? The masonry in the upper left is interesting.

So you don't think that it is the pitstart of the next leg, as they leave Vienna, as we were discussing?

I am not sure how to move a cap to another post  but if you go to the one where Amy is working on the fishing trap, her hair looks like it is up in the top knot.  So I too would believe that shot of her and Jason are at the beginning of the leg in Vienna.
