    TAR4 - At a Glance

    Now that we're nearing the end of the race, I thought I'd share something I've been working on -- call it a "Reference Guide" -- with the rest of the group, as a way of looking back on the journey.

    Though I've completed it through Leg 11, I'm only going to post the first few legs, in order to determine interest and to get feedback. Any suggestions or corrections would be appreciated.

    That's very interesting. Thanks for posting that, and I would actually love to see the rest of the legs. It was good to see the pit stop times to see when the teams actually arrived, cause on the show it's only seems like a few minutes.
