To clarify – one run per pilot in Qualifying today
First up it's Francois Le Vot
Bonne chance, Francois Le Vot!
Francois Le Vot staying level and avoiding those penalties
Gate 12 pylon hit for Le Vot
Francois Le Vot: 1.03.649
The Air Gators have been put through their paces today!
Next up, it's Juan Velarde... can he make it through the racetrack without any penalties?
Juan Velarde moves up to the Master Class flying the Edge 540 V2
T7 was a 1.05.115 with 2s in penalties for Velarde, can he beat that?
He's in the green as he passes through the first section but is off Le Vot's pace by .16s
So far penalty free... a step forward!
Velarde - 1.01.514
US pilot Goulian is next up
Goulian goes next and he's got a new raceplane – complete overhaul of his team setup and race strategy
And he's into the track... 199kts through the Start Gate
He's got a longer wing chord on his Edge 540 than the other pilots, supposedly to give more lift
