Dolderer backing Yoshi for the win today!
Local hero Yoshi Muroya up next.
Muroya seems to be thriving on the fans' support and he's just got to stay focused now.
He went 1:04.610 in the Round of 8 and that kind of result will guarantee him a podium today.
Yoshi Muroya is cleared into the track... and he's GOING FOR THE WIN!
Safely through the Start Gate and Muroya will be pushing hard... we've seen mistakes happen but he's looking so good... the first split is green!
The mantra is error-free and Muroya is finding time in the track... he's already 0.108s faster than Lamb
The splits stay green and Muroya is keeping it fast and clean out there and he's pushing HARD!
Just Chambliss and Sonka could take the dream from Muroya
Chambliss hasn't touched 1:04 yet this weekend so it'll be a tough call for the US pilot to take the lead from the Japanese hero
Chambliss cleared into the track...
Chambliss is FAST... that first split is green and he's looking a danger for the top spot on the podium!
The US pilot is really pushing it hard and he's only just ahead now in the second split... the vertical turn manoeuvre is clean and fast and he's just ahead stlll...
Just Sonka to fly now in Chiba. Sonka could make or break a dream race for Muroya...
Sonka went faster than Muroya in the Round of 14 but can he recreate that pace in this final run?
Sonka into the track... SMOKE ON!
198kts through the Start Gate... he's in the GREEN in the first split and Sonka isn't being sentimental today... he WANTS that win!
