EvilexElf will correct if not, but the sea is on the left, so probably in direction to Messina/Catania?

I think they arrived at Falcone–Borsellino Airport and then went to East Sicily.. maybe Messina?

Alenaveda you are correct!

Isn't it a little disappointing that they are mostly staying in Europe this many legs in?
So many countries and so many opportunities. Is the budget that tight this season?

Okay...what we don't yet know is where that tunnel fits on the map. Before or after the turnoff to Messina?

Phil could have just arrived and be on the way to the first location.

He could equally as well be leaving Palermo after the first leg, and heading?>> ____________???

Okay I think thanks to the little google man that Phil was about here...so could be heading any direction.

Any reason to go to that other airport? Termini Imerese? ???

Yes they could be heading any direction..

I think the reason they arrived at Palermo Airport is they did a task near there..


Palermo Airport -> Palermo or near -> Catania/Messina -> Catania Airport.

Okay good.

What we DON"T know is

1) Did Phil arrive yesterday, do a leg today in Palermo, and now be on his way to the next leg or transport to ___?

2) Did Phil JUST arrive, and is now on his way to the first location?

Palermo was of the areas we expected filming...so am sorry to seeing Phil already heading AWAY from there!

Gotta love how Phil edited out the flaming GREAT BIG A19 on the road!! :lol3:

I hope you are sarcastic, because the A19 is added by Google Streetview and not present on the actual road  ;)

Considering it's about 11pm now in Italy they arrived about 39 hours ago.

Didn't the teams drive at least part of this route on a past visit to Sicily? I seem to recall teams having to drive from one side of Sicily to the other, and back. (Yep, leg 4 of season 9)

I'm wondering if he's toying with us and posting pics after he gets to the next location.  Not to sound suspicious or anything, but it still seems strange to me that they're giving us so much info while the race is going.  Then again there could be nothing to see here and it could just be that I've already forgotten what we've had to work with during previous races.

I do think they have decided that a little spoiler fun is FUN for them as well. Just look at the open NYC start...who woulda thunk that a few years back? And cast/locations just really make people MORE interested not less. I think it is brilliant.

Agreed, it's wonderful - very tantalising! And wow, what a season, Peach is right! NYC! MOROCCO! OXFORD! SHETLANDS! DENMARK! SICILY! VIRGIN ISLANDS!

So where are we with Legs?

1) NYC and Virgin Islands
2) Oxford
3) Shetland Islands
4) Denmark (and Sweden?)
5) Morocco
6) Morocco
7) Sicily

Are we at 7 or 8 legs?
