That's a faster run for Le Vot after this morning's FP3 session...
Velarde into the track and the Spanish pilot took a best result of 2nd in FP2
Third split time is green and Velarde keeps flying clean... he's just to get through that Finish Gate without any penalties and he does it!
He's achieved 57s in training and he's got room to improve with that clean run.
Velarde really going full throttle and more aggressive at the Marina Turn... we're seeing over 1s scrubbed off his Run 1 time and he's just got to stay penalty free to stay competitive
TOO BAD! Velarde picks up a DNF for an aggressive over-G. With two runs today he'll go with that Run 1 time but when it comes to Race Day there won't be any second chances
USA's Kirby Chambliss up next. He's been working hard over the off-season period on new mods and is big on data analysis. We've not seen any super-speedy times from Chambliss yet but he's hugely experienced and will be pushing hard today
Just on the mark there with the start speed and Kirby looking confident but the call to knock it off comes from the race tower
He's not looking happy there, he's had an order to return to base after the DNF result for exceeding maximum G
Goulian placed third in this morning's Free Practice 3 session... let's see if he can retain a top 3 position out in Qualifying today
He's been working all offseason on new mods and knows his plane is fast... now it's down to skill
Mikey G looking good and is 1.2s faster than Velarde
Goulian's experience shining through - he's looking smooth and confident and it's a clean Run 1 for Qualifying
Goulian 59.974 and he'll be pleased with that first run. Another chance to go even better in the track... can he scrub off even more time?
Goulian has flown 58s this week so this could be a chance to match his track record or go even faster
Third split and Goulian is half a second faster than his first run...
Goulian looking good and goes full throttle for the Finish Gate, and it's clean, quick and solid
Good job Mikey G!
Ivanoff has a completely different line to Goulian and is losing time in the track as the splits remain red, he makes up a little in the third split but he's flying clean... and he's put in a good performance with 59.523... a whole lot better than his previous DNF.
Ivanoff gets ready to go in for his second run and he can now afford to go harder...
He's going faster in the first split than Goulian but he's wandered out of the track and it's a DQ for crossing the safety line. But for Ivanoff, he's put in a decent time and sits in second on the timesheets ahead of Velarde and behind Goulian.
Next up is Canada's Pete McLeod. He's yet to put down a time under 1 minute and has been picking up penalties in the last flying sessions
