There aren't any quarantine requirements for Switzerland, Italy, France, and Greece, but it's a longer gap than we're used to:

Arrival in Zurich: 17 Sep 1:20pm
Departure from Milan: 22 Sep 11:09am (spending 4 days 22h on land)

Arrival in Bastia: 22 Sep 12:02pm
Departure from Figari: 26 Sep 9:38am (spending 3 days 21h on land)

As a reference, last season we had: Trinidad and Tobago (~1.5 days on land), Bogota (~1.5 days), Manaus (~2.5 days), Asuncion (~2 days), Paris+Berlin (~5 days), Almaty (~2.5 days), Hyderabad (~1.5 days), Siem Reap (~1.5 days), Manila (~1 day).

I wonder if we could have fit in two legs between Switzerland and Italy, or even on Corsica for that matter?

I guess we have to follow the whole titan fleet to figure out which plane and where they go to next since they are switching planes

Here is a good link:
https://www.radarbox.com/data/airlines/AWC

ZT901 was LA->Zurich
ZT902 was Milan->Corsica
ZT903 was Corsica->Thessaloniki
So next one will be ZT904?

One unidentified MM team, Ray/Caro and Sam/Connie are suspected to not be racing.

All other teams are presumed to be racing via lack of social media activity.

Isn't the Singing Cops already eliminated on the 1st Leg, London.
It would be weird for TAR to bring back eliminated teams, if they are continuing from where they left off.

 :duno:

This has been addressed in detail. We believe at least two eliminated teams were brought back in to replace the teams unable to go out at this time.

Yes its a first! Will be interested to see how it is handled.

Air the first previously filmed legs then have an INSERT describing the delay and the moving forward? :dunno:

Will be a fiun season to watch!

Yeah Utubefan, looks like that would be the numbering convention for the Titan flights!
If the race moves beyond Europe, it might not make sense for the planes to keep flying back to base in Stansted. Perhaps we would shift to having a single aircraft accompanying the racers?

Who is the other eliminated team to be brought back? I believe we knew only about singing cops to being eliminated in 2020?

My bad didn’t realize there was a separate thread for that.

So I guess the first new missing leg(s) are probably in the alps between Zurich and Milan?

Do you think we can have Europe only route due to Covid? We already have like 7 legs in Europe.

Is there possibility for endgame legs in South America?

This is getting exciting now. So, the Greek news was that they were to be there Monday. Do we think that leg has already happened?

While not ideal Bahrain could be a likely candidate for an Asia leg. Assuming that everyone was required to get vaccinated they would fulfill both requirements for a quarantine exemption, being vaccinated (specifically from either the UK, EU, US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Korea, Japan, or Singapore) and not visiting or transiting through any countries on Bahrain “red list” within the past 14 days.

Webcamgalore.com has some still shots of the Aristotelous Square in Thessaloniki. Not a close up image but you can see the who thing going down.

The recent sightings were the central square of Arnaia.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/%CE%9A%CE%B5%CE%BD%CF%84%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%AE+%CE%A0%CE%BB%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%B1+%CE%91%CF%81%CE%BD%CE%B1%CE%AF%CE%B1%CF%82/@40.4862374,23.5944218,147m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x14a8ef89157ffedd:0xe198ad3d0a16d183!8m2!3d40.4862364!4d23.5949703

The cafe in Arnaia, Greece that took the shot of the cameraman says no teams arrived but that multiple motorbikes came past at one point. Most of the filming 'done on the road' they said.

Perhaps this was a pre-shoot because we were not expecting teams till Monday

This is a good point. To me, it looked like they were filming B-roll of random people at a cafe.

Why would there only be 8 teams flying from LAX to Zurich if it was a full restart?

Do we even have evidence suggesting that only 8 teams came back for the restart? Or is just pure spec and replacement teams could’ve been brought on as well?

Also we now understand that the first legs filmed before the Covid Stop may be used.

Too add to this, we can confirm 8 teams flew from LAX to Zurich on Sept.16

They're a trustworthy source and it's in the Live Sightings thread so I trust it.

Pure speculation...

What if they are planning to air the 3 episodes filmed in 2020 as "spin-off" episodes and make TAR33 a 9-leg 8 team race only?  :d025:

This seems to the most logical way to create a "fair" race for all the returned teams, and to make use of the already filmed episodes
