Finally, it's Nicolas Ivanoff who gets the final all-clear of the day in the Masters Qualifying session
But Ivanoff hasn't got off to a particularly quick start as he passes through the Start Gate at 188.81kts
It's clean and steady so far but the pace is so-so... it's now raining so Ivanoff is contending with wind and rain conditions so that'll definitely be affecting Ivanoff's aerodynamics out there. He's still holding on and fighting hard, and despite everything grabs 58.545
Ivanoff in the last run of the day, just 187.50kts through the Start Gate, but despite that Ivanoff is looking really quick in that first split... but the conditions are at odds with Ivanoff and he's 0.857s off Velarde's pace and Ivanoff just needs to keep up the pace and keep the penalties at bay now... he's pushing harder and has managed to scrubb off some time for this run, achieving 57.996.
Barros achieved a best of 4th place in Practice and with the cancelled Qualifying yesterday, this is his only chance now of getting a better result at the second stop here in Austria
It's a bit of a conservative run for the Brazilian pilot, and Barros will be fresh out of the starting blocks today with a difficult job of setting that benchmark for the remaining 5 Challenger pilots. He's flying steadily but passes gate 9 too high... that's +2s on the clock for the Brazilian!
Next up, it's Sweden's Daniel Ryfa... the ice man of the Challenger Cup had a decisive victory in the last free practice session before today's racing... he's on point and looks to be the man to beat here in Spielberg in the Challenger Cup.
- Pylon Hit!
But OH NO! PYLON HIT AT THE START GATE FOR RYFA!
Ryfa still retaining his cool and the Swedish pilot pushes harder in that second split... the times are looking better than Barros' but he passes the Finish Gate with 1:08.216 on the clock... that could be an open door for Bolton who was hot on Ryfa's tail yesterday
US pilot Kevin Coleman. Coleman struck the third place in Abu Dhabi, but he's struggled to find the same form on this super-technical track in Spielberg.
Just to update fans... the live broadcast starts from 11:00 UTC with the Master Class Round of 14! Just waiting for Coleman to make it into the track here for the Challenger Cup...
