Does anyone remember which legs were filmed while it's raining? It can be either it started to rain in the middle of the leg or it was raining since the beginning until the Pit Stop.

Off the top of my head, I can think of 1 ... All Stars S11 in Macau.

By coincidence, I was just watching TAR China Rush 1 Episode 10 (in Yunnan), where it literally rained for the entire leg. Hard.

Also TAR3 Leg 11 in Cai Be. One of the heaviest downpours ever seen on the race besides Burkina Faso.

Although for barley any of the leg. S15 Ep2 when they landed in Ho Chi Minh City also on their way to Cai Be there was extreme rain but this subsided for the actual leg the following day.

It definitely rained in TAR 6 leg 2, which made the rollerskiing that much harder.

Wasn't also raining on the New York part of the final leg from TAR10?

Does look like it but not much though. At the start of S10 it was raining as well.

It rained somewhat on the latter half of the Kingston, Ontario leg of TAR Canada 4, forcing the audience dressed in period clothing to move inside.

It was also raining a lot in Montreal on TAR Canada 2, making it somewhat difficult to do the stunt driving challenge.

Yeah, I remember the latter for raining the whole time. Everyone had an extremely difficult time with that Roadblock, including the professional stunt actor. The wet tarmac made for poor traction for the maneuvers they had to do.

I remember the leg in Ireland was raining, TAR12 Leg 1. I'm pretty sure there's more, but I can't think of any on the spot right now. ???

What happens to camera and sound crew when teams get eliminated? Do they get stationed elsewhere on the race course, or do they get sent home? I know for sure they shuffle between teams every leg to avoid bias, but I'm not sure what happens to them when racers get fewer and fewer.

The crew gets downsized as the teams become fewer.

You know that comedic moment in TAR 18 where Christina is telling Zev & Justin to keep their cabs by saying "[Chinese word/s]" to the driver, and Z/J laugh because of how unusual it sounds?

What WAS Christina telling them to say?

episode 5, but still leg 4 as this was an extended leg. Just before they got to the (honour the past - they had to wear yellow hats) detour. It looks like she is showing 'wait here' while saying something like 'duh'.

Is there a place to see the filming dates of each season compiled in one place?

I know this happened as recently as leg 9 of TAR29, but I can't remember.
Is it written in the task infromation for teams that there is a limited number of stations for a detour? Or do they just find that out once on location?

Actually, uh, that is pretty much the one thing I haven't been covering. All I have on the Wiki is basic filming start and end dates such as "June 10 – July 2, 2016"

If anybody wants to provide me with more specific filming dates, feel free to send them to me in a PM (or make a thread here...?) and I will put them in, but I don't have time to research that stuff myself.

If you do, please don't forget the Pit Start date (ie, the finale of TAR 20 needs not only the day they were in Chicago, but also the day that they flew out of South Korea)

You can check Oval's Timelines. I would think start and finish dates would be enough for the wiki but leg dates are there as well in a "to the best of our knowledge" way.
