Route Markers

The order of departure from Parc Elisabeth are as follows:

  1. Amani & Marcus
  2. Ernie & Cindy
  3. Jeremy & Sandy
  4. Andy & Tommy
  5. Bill & Cathi

Since the previous leg was a no-rest leg, teams immediately departed from the Pit Stop to continue racing.

Teams must drive themselves to the Ford Proving Grounds to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to test drive a Ford Mustang where they first have to accelerate to 100 mph and then brake at a designated spot. They then have to go through a autocross course within 16 seconds and then perform two victory doughnuts. Once all three tasks are completed, their instructor will hand them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Ghent and search for the Hoofdbrug, where they'll find their next clue.

Choice A: Water
Teams would have to use the provided materials, pontoons, rope, and wood, to build a raft to search the Lieve canal for two halves to their next clue.

Amani & Marcus, Andy & Tommy, and Bill & Cathi chose this task.

Choice B: Waffle
Teams would have to build a waffle stand and then bake and decorate 18 Belgian waffles to the chef's satisfaction before they can receive their next clue.

Ernie & Cindy and Jeremy & Sandy chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Muur van Geraardsbergen to find their next clue.

Teams must release 100 homing pigeons and are given to a specific address to chase the pigeons. Once there, teams would be able to retrieve a small photograph as their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the Atomium to check in.

For coming in first place, Andy & Tommy each won a Ford Mustang.
