Whether you like it or not, electric cars are part of our future, and I hope that my next one will be able to function without the need of any gas. Distance races are quite important, because they allow teams to showcase and iron out the faults in rapidly-developing electric vehicle technologies.
Teams are heading to Atlanta, their final destination. They must make their way to Flight Safety International. Amani/Marcus live in Atlanta. The other teams think they have an edge. All the teams are on the same flight.
Teams will take to the skies in a multi-million dollar Learjet simulator. Ernie is the first to crash and burn because Cindy didn’t check the airspeed. Marcus lands the plane first, but he skids. Jeremy completes it first and they leave.
Andy/Tommy customized their Mustangs. Teams are leaving the Atomium. They must dress up as characters from Tintin. They are Dupont and Dupond. They don’t know who Tintin is or what costume they are wearing.
Jeremy/Sandy are second to leave, about 30 minutes after the boarders. They find out that they are looking for Tintin. They are told that they are Jonson and Johnson. Ernie/Cindy find out that they are characters from Tintin and their names.
Teams make their way to the statue of Hans Christian Andersen. They face a Roadblcok which involves memorizing a Hans Christian Andersen poem. They must ride a bike to a theater and recite it. Cindy does it. The poem is only 4 lines. She gets it on the 1st try and gets the clue.
Teams are leaving for Salima. There is a Double U-Turn ahead. The bus leaves at 7AM. All of the teams leave before 6:07 AM. All of the teams except Amani/Marcus are on the same bus. Thanks to some negotiating, they get into it. They are also in front, so it will be easier to get out.
Teams are leaving for Phuket, Thailand. Andy/Tommy help out Laurence/Zac at the airport. They left within 10 minutes of each other. The next team leaves over an hour later. Four teams leave within a few minutes. They are Jeremy/Sand, Justin/Jen, Ernie/Cindy and Amani/Marcus. The other two teams are 15 minutes behind the main bunch.
