Didn’t Will say he already knew how to drive stick, but took lessons to prep for the race? And to be fair, it looked like he did know how to drive stick - he just was unfamiliar with that particular car and kept putting it into 3rd instead of 1st. Definite rookie mistake, but once he realized it he was driving fine.
BTW, I just googled “Stick shift driving school” and found a bunch of them.
I was completely caught off guard by the blondes overtaking. I was sure it was just a bunch of dramatic nonsense and they would finish in dead last. I really wish they did more “drive yourself” or “walk” legs. Taxi drama is just boring and unfair.
Yeah, they managed a comeback, but they’re not long for the race anyway - they’re just generally not good racers. They were in the second bunch this episode, but still managed to fall all the way back to last place. Their finishes so far have been 8, 8, 3, 8 (non-el), 7.
