The fans are on their feet but Arch is in hunt mode as he attempts to go for a winning run in front of his home crowd
Hannes looking smooth and clean, and he's staying focused and on the hunt right now, the home crowd will be going wild as Arch tackles the final turning manoeuvre
Arch posts 57.254... the quickest so far today and Chambliss will be having to post his best ever time this week to beat that
Chambliss now has a fight on his hands and he'll know it, so he's got to stay super cool
A great start... 196.58kts through the Start Gate and we're seeing a GREEN on the first split! That is a dangerous proposition for Arch!
But Hannes is back on top in this heat as Chambliss slips behind in the second split... he's lost time despite a great turn through Gate 5
The fans will be going wild at the prospect of a local hero on the podium today... it could be a best ever result for Hannes today. Let's see..
Dolderer into the track at 195.7kts, he's taking no prisoners today and will be thinking about speed, precision and gaining a massive advantage on Ivanoff. It's a tough call...
Dolderer error free and looking great, confident and some great angles on these tricky Gates at the Red Bull Ring
It's very quick! Dolderer 57.457 and that is a big challenge for Ivanoff to answer.
Ivanoff is a tough contender and has many seasons' experience under his belt... he's not usually ruffled by some difficult competition so let's see what he can come up with
Ivanoff cleared into the track for his Round of 8 race.... the split is green for this first portion of the track and he's definitely got some serious speed right now
The vertical turn looks to be lacking and Dolderer gains an advantage in the ghosts, but Ivanoff will have some time to make up and he can't quite find the pace to catch up
He just can't catch Dolderer and Ivanoff is out with 59.045 and Dolderer is through to the Final 4
