This second one is Santiago Garcia Botta, right?

Robot = Botta

Is there a river called Garcia?

Fissler looks to have been pretty spot-on so far. And here he is re-iterating who he thinks we're going to see...

Answer: yep.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garcia_River

Yeah but that can't possibly be the clue.

The robot is first -- the river pic I had assumed was something to do with how it splits or an island (eyot?).

I'm baffled

Botta

Oh it's TAR. Wow. They could literally have chosen any other picture in the world.

And you're right, a quick Google image search shows they've stolen it from a company in Austen, Texas. https://poorpaulspaving.com/tar-and-chip/

Probably why they chose that pic - v low risk. They're obliged to pay out if the photographer/copyright owner comes calling, but how likely is that?

Having said that, they should really just use Pixabay: https://pixabay.com/images/search/tarmac/

Couple of good ones announced today.  If to be believed, we will also see, Baldwin, Snyman, Herron, Young and Campagnaro announced.   I have a feeling that we will get a surprise or two, one or two names out of nowhere that have not been mentioned before.  I would take a guess at Back row or Wing
