Let's hope that the teams actually spend some time in London or some other larger European cities, in almost all recent series whenever teams went to a larger European city they always just went off driving around the countryside. Obviously filming inside the city might be harder and it greatly increases the risk of getting spotted, but some european city action would be nice, the only recent one was in Russia in TAR 21 if I remember right.

Yes they need some more Big City Action, So London could be perfect!!!!

Don't forget we have Berlin!
Teams were spotted walking through the streets holding huge letters.
Berlin certainly qualifies as Big City Action.

Would be a very welcome change and I hope they do it in more seasons!

Do you suppose Wynona digs for scorpions?
She better be... :rules: ..... jk! :lol:

But seriously, unless she wants to do a more physical or strengthy Roadblock than the sandcastles, she HAS to do the scorpion RB.

Were we certain that the F3 is Max/Katie, Bates/Anthony, and Mona/Beth? Maybe this will make that true?

Max posted a Twitter pic quite a while ago https://twitter.com/MrMaxBichler/status/302824653372674048/photo/1

and the first three names that appear are theirs, Mona/Beth, and Bates/Anthony (clearly Bates got cut off)

Idk.. I recall these incidents happening in past seasons (I remember in TAR 18 someone said that they had Gary & Mallory listed, and in TAR 19 someone had Ernie & Cindy listed.. if I recall, Dave/Rachel were listed in TAR 20?)

Just a little "fact" idk

You do realise that's for the opening episode?

As for London, all I'm going to say is that London is not the be all and end all of the British Isles, as shown in series 3 and with going to Edinburgh and Belfast. Sure it's the main International flight hub, but there are far better cities in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales that showcase the many wonders of the isles that London just can't do.

Doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure they list the same people in every single episode. The fact that they appear in probably every episode of this season is why they're in the description.

It HAS happened in past seasons.

THIS. They do not need to go to London every time they come here, even if from there, they go off somewhere else. I'm so glad Edinburgh/Longniddry and Belfast are being showcased instead this time

True it could be great to see Liverpool, Manchester, the country of Wales and get a visit to Sherwood Forest to have a Robin Hood challenge.
But i would personally love to see London, before the end city. It could be so cool. There are so many amazing Places there BigBen, Wembly, The Harry Potter experience. A lot of great museums they could do stuff at. And finally many great personallyties they could refere to like The Iron Lady, William Churchill and Charles Dickens. But it looks like London is NOT gonna happend this season. :'( :'( :'( :'(

It doesn't have to be in exact same location. The Fast Forward Switchback in TAR20 is in different city, although in the same country (India). ;)

Is there any possibility that there'll be more than one Switchback? :ascared :ascared

That's the thought that I have as well. It would surprise viewers for there to be two such switchbacks in the same season. And IIRC, didn't we have photographic evidence of the final leg switchback?

It sort of depends on what type of task is the switchback.

Fast Forward switchbacks (head shaving) have not been in the same location. Roadblock switchbacks (haybales) was in the same exact field.

The cheesehill was neither of those, but it was a route info team task. I dont think we have had a switchback on route info yet.

Just because a task is simular, it doesn't mean its a switchback. I think the only switchback is the cheese task. I doubt they would do an official switchback of the most hated season in TAR history.

Based on our caps/sightings for Scotland so far, we have 4 places:

The Royal Mile
Craigmillar Castle
Duddingston Kirk
Gosford House

The Royal Mile is probably where teams picked up their cars if they were getting directions in Cowgate, which isn't far from the Mile; Gosford House is most likely the Pit Stop. However, Craigmillar Castle and Duddingston Kirk are the ones which are slightly puzzling. Craigmillar Castle could be either a Detour or Roadblock, but Duddingston Kirk is quite a small graveyard, so potentially, depending on where it is in relation to other places possibly visited, could be a site of a Double U-Turn or a Speed Bump (which would imply an NEL in Germany). If it were to be a Double U-Turn, we would most likely see an NEL before that (as we have not had a Double U-Turn with only 4 teams left?) so that could be either in Switzerland (which is to be believed as per the timeline) or Germany.

With that in mind, I'm going to speculate Chuck and Wynona to be the next to go, it's whether we will see them saved by a NEL prior to their departure

At the bottom of page 24 I posted what they may be doing at Duddingston Kirk:

I'm going to guess that a detour in Edinburgh is could be Stones(curling) or Bowls(skittles) as next to Duddingston Kirk is Thomson's Tower - http://www.drneilsgarden.co.uk/history2.html which is where the rules of curling were first written down and where they stored the stones. There is also The Sheep Heid Inn - http://www.thesheepheidedinburgh.co.uk/offer/skittleslley/ which has Scotland's oldest surviving skittle alley.
As they probably flew into Edinburgh, I would guess that they picked the cars up at the Airport, as the only other options are taxi or Airport bus. There are two ways to get to Gosford House from the airport, the city bypass or through town. If they went through the town, it would be very easy to get lost in the city centre due to the ongoing tram works (from the Airport to the city centre).
Having spoken to someone who was at Craigmillar Castle on the Monday they were in Edinburgh, she said that there was some filming happening when she left, which I guess would have been late afternoon, which would correspond with the late afternoon sighting at the Holiday Inn in the Cowgate, so I would guess that the pitstop is at Craigmillar Castle, followed by the windsurfing/Gosford House/Duddingston Kirk on the Tuesday then maybe TBC pitstop to get to Belfast. Will add flights to the transportation thread.

I think this leg could be our final NEL. That leaves 6 teams racing in Berlin, and the opportunity for a Double U-Turn, because with more teams racing, the better chances the U-Turns will be used. Fingers crossed!

I like Supah's theory. After Berlin, there are 5 teams racing in Edinburgh and the final four in Belfast. So, both UK legs are eliminations. In both Switzerland legs of TAR18, they're all elimination rounds.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

This is not a spoiler. It's an announcement from CBS about the AR22 finale on May 5:

After sprinting nearly 30,000 miles, over five continents and through nine countries, the final four Teams find themselves bog snorkeling in Belfast, Ireland where one Team's Race will come to an end. The final three Teams Race to our nation's capital where they'll scour some of Washington, D.C.'s most historic landmarks for the chance to be crowned this season's $1 million winners.
