Hall clocked in at 58.850 in the Round of 14, McLeod clocked in at 58.760 in his R14 heat
We've seen a complete change of conditions, with the wind swinging around to the East and just around 5kts now.
That's a big change from earlier today and it'll mean some recalculations for the pilots
#95 cleared into the track... Matt Hall kicks off the Round of 8!
Hall going flat out here in his first run, 196kts through the Start Gate and he's not showing any signs of slowing, some great splits here and Hall is running fast and clean!
Pete McLeod is cleared into the track... the Canadian storms through the Start Gate at 196kts and that's a great start... McLeod needs to find some serious speed here in these conditions and he'll be looking to grab some advantage on Hall early in the track
Hall's MXS-R has an advantage in the turns so it's all about precision and speed for McLeod... and the splits are green!!!
Green all the way for McLeod and he's got the Finish Gate in his sights... McLeod is through and he's error free and McLeod really steps up this time and pushes Matt Hall out of the running for the podium
McLeod wins Heat 8 with 57.422!
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
