Either way guys, all of you have great speculation and ideas!

When all the episodes premier we will know!

Remember We are only a week away until the premier!

Yeah.. I agree with you.. We need know right now and One week left until the primetime...  they are amazing detective,  and analysis evidence but not much enough evidence..

I suspect the automatic U-Turn would work best in a double, i.e. have one team's photo already up, with the 'Courtesy of' picture being their own image or Phil or something. This way someone else (or the affected team) can still use it if they haul enough ass.

I think the Automatic U-turn is something that the team affected has to do...not a choice for them, and stands alone.

I agree with this. I would speculate that it would work just as a Speedbump (with the pics of the team already there).

Additionally, having a penalty that might come haunt you unexpectedly in an unknown future leg screams: "FREE DRAMA" to me.

BTW, doesn't it seem kind of interesting that the previous returning-racers (S11) featured the Yield extensively and that now the U-Turn comes into the spotlight in a similar fashion?
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Hmmm...

One thing I have learned from doing the caps is that we see certain shots for a reason...clues if you like.

This season appears to be no different.  ;)

Since this is a speculation thread..

I am more incline to think that the team who receives the penalty of an automatic U-TURN will not know when the U-TURN will be placed on the race.. and that Phil will include in his speech that this team who receives the penalty will then have to race as hard as they can each leg just in case the automatic U-TURN happens on that leg. If you get eliminated before the automatic U-TURN appears, then too bad.. because you're indeed too weak. If you're still in the race by the time the automatic U-TURN appears.. then you gotta work your ass and complete it without getting eliminated!

If they do.. then they will know which leg they will have a U-TURN?

Let's get to the point.

Do you think you will ever tell who these mysterious contestants are?

Well now with offical CBS confirmation of both the Express Pass and Automatic U Turn.....it probably means that both teams were on the later flight, that arrived earlier. At least the Automatic U Turn team was. If Phil does in fact hand out the Express Pass at the faux Pit Stop on the beach....bet it sure upsets the 8 teams on the first flight that had to stopover in Honolulu, that were planning on winning it.

If that article is correct then we have to assume that Gary-Mallory won the Express Pass, although if I remember from another post, someone asked them if they had won it and they denied it, not that they necessarily told the truth.
The question that arises from that article for me is: Which team received the Automatic U-Turn? The one who finished the starting line last, meaning one of the three in the non-delayed flight, or the last team to the faux Pit Stop, meaning the Cowboys?

Good question kikisak, the article says the last team to arrive at the mat. To me this indicates the "fake PS" since he calls it a mat not a PitStop.

I think the U-turn will be enforced in Broken Hill b/c Coutzy said there is no Detour in Leg 1. However if Krimanda is eliminated in BH then the Cowboys who arrived last at the midway must be the first team to overcome the Uturn, a point that TPTB will probably enjoy and promote.
Physics alone is not enough.

Yes good questions.......but then again.......they could hand the Express Pass out at BrokenHill......the first real pit stop. Lots of unspoiled stuff to look for on Sunday night.
