TAR AUS 6 DISCUSSION of the LIVE SPOILERS
« on: February 26, 2022, 07:48:07 AM »

THIS THREAD IS THE WORKZONE OF ALL THE LIVE SIGHTINGS.

This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR AUS 6 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean.


(If the start is pre-announced LIVE, then we will use that thread for all sightings Start to Airport Departure.)

ALL Discussion of the LIVE Sightings and comments on them go here!




As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any non-revealed teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand, we would love to know, so please feel free to PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!

This thread will be opened once the race is beginning.  :tup:

What do we think the sighting means by Belgium?
Are they going to Belgium, or he/she things the gold-short team is from Belgium?

If there's no cameras, what this looks like is they're entering hotel sequester. Which means they're starting soon.

At least we already have visuals of a couple teams!

2 teams sighted were surrounded by crew and one of them even had TAR envelope in his hands so I do not think it's sequester. This looks like they started already.

It'll be an international race this time. The producers said in an article last year, "We're not doing Australia again". It'll be interesting to see if they took any pointers from Season 33 on how to do it safely. Not sure if the Australian version would have the budget for a private jet, but there's still plenty of steps they can take.

There's cameras on the ground in both team pics. Could easily be filming pre-race promo materials

For 2019 did we ever get confirmation if the teams sequestered in Seoul or Aus? ???

Given the location of the hotel I struggle to see how this isn't sequester. I would think as soon as they're done they'll fly straight out for a start.

Firstly, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Jobelle (who brought this information to RFF) and to Heather (who posted this information on Instagram!)

Here's what I've been able to gather so far:
- I can count TEN teams in that IG picture, including one team member who appears to suffer from dwarfism, a Blue F/F Muslim Team, a POSSIBLE Aboriginal M/F Black Team & the two teams spoiled already in the Stamford Sydney Airport Hotel Pic (F/F Purple Team & M/M Gold Shorts team)
- Still unsure of the exact Starting Location (will ask for more info), but I think we can assume the Race started in Sydney, either yesterday (Friday March 4th), or today (Saturday March 5)
- Team's first clue sent them to the Hickson Road Reserve, directly across Sydney Harbour from the Sydney Opera House
- Still no word on whether Beau has been seen yet (or even if he is hosting the show!). I have asked Heather for more info and will update this post when/if more information comes to hand

All International Flight Departures From Sydney Airport - Friday March 4th & Saturday March 5th

Remember, keep in mind, teams may not have flown directly to their first destination from Sydney. They MAY have connected elsewhere (most likely either Melbourne or Brisbane)








Los Angeles seems to jump out to me, with four flights, including two just five minutes apart from each other... However, if teams did a few tasks during the day in Sydney, a late afternoon/evening flight could be a real possibility, opening up places like London/Honolulu/Singapore/Doha/Kuala Lumpur...

If you zoom in the photo and look behind the cameraman it looks like there might be an 11th team (and quite tall)

There is also video posted on that IG account and there are only 10 teams for sure.

The black team appears to be MM (based off the video), so that would make it 4 FF, 4MM, and 2MF.

We donít know if they will be using a specific plane like US 33 did.  If they do thst all the flight info is useless. Letís hope for not!!

I rewatched the video several times and this is what I got:

Left to right:
Team 1 - younger MF, asianaustralians?
Team 2 - Either MM or MF. I am not sure about gender of team member on the right. I thought it was male at first but on the video I think I see hair bun and boobs while they are running?
Team 3 - MM team, one team member had dwarfism.
Team 4 - another tricky one, it's either MF or FF I can not tell the gender of team member on the right. They seem older as they are clearly slower runners compared to other teams based on that video.
Team 5 - FF team, one is wearing hijab the other one is not wearing it, so at least one of them is muslim.
Team 6 - MF team.
Team 7 - blonde FF team.
Team 8 - MM team, afroaustralians.
Team 9 - FF team already sighted.
Team 10 - MM team already sighted.

They're in Chefchaouen, that city in Morocco where things are very, very blue.

I remember speculating TAR30 going there when they were in Tangier.

Team 2 (Blue) is MF.

Team 4 looks to be FF - two mature women.

This is pure speculation, but if they're in Chefchaouen then I think it's possible that the destination after could be in southern Spain like either in or south of Seville since Chefchaouen is right at the tip below Spain. It's at least worth keeping an eye out for that in the future.

I think fastest way to get there would be a layover to Doha, and then a flight to Casablanca or Rabat

Flying from Australia to Morocco takes almost a full day (23h at least) with connection via Doha, not to mention they have to do massive land transportation to Chefchaouen after touching down. It seems a too long jump for a leg to me.
