MUROYA V BONHOMME now and with the track record set in the last round, Japanese pilot Muroya could well take the win in this heat... watch out Bonhomme!
HERE WE GO! 50.779 in the last round - can he top that?!
Smoke on! Slow through the gate at 190 but what's that about? He's behind his line says Mangold...
He's back through the chicane and still clean in his Edge 540 V3 new raceplane... it's a 51.478! No, that's an over G at the last minute! SHOCKER!
That's a BIG disappointment and he won't go through... sad faces at the hangar and it's the end of the dream for Muroya here in Japan
Bonhomme next into the track and all he has to do is make it through out there
But if he over Gs or makes a DNF then it could go wrong for him...
And here he goes, smooth and clean, usual from the Brit – he's here to move through to the Final 4 and it's a good run for Bonhomme. 51.392 clean and it's a place in the next round
Bonhomme's faster than Hall with 2 more head to heads to run...
And the wind is making the track a bit more challenging, says Mangold
Muroya at the race airport: "Team tactics for this round were to push hard against Bonhomme, but we'll have to wait til the next race."
CHAMBLISS V DOLDERER up next and we're excited to see how the American can do today
SMOKE ON! Here he goes... 198 through the start gate and he's a little high, behind his line, staying flat for the vertical turn
Return leg of the track and he's at gate 10 - he's through with a solid time but Dolderer could take it. It's 53.631 and an improvement from the earlier round
And the German is in the track, he's strong out there and has what it takes to make the podium... it's green at the first split time... green all the way! It's 52.365 and he goes through!
And that was definitely some yodelling from the cockpit!
IVANOFF V LAMB and this is on a knife edge...
Ivanoff won Qualifying and has the advantage of going second in this head to head
Lamb is in the track, he's a bit high too and completes the first of the 2 vertical turns with ease... he's back through the chicane and looking good. Looks like he's nailed his line for the turns
OOOHHH! under review...
52.448 and Race Director Steve Jones gives him the OK... over to Ivanoff and we'll have our Final 4 line up!
We've got Bonhomme, Dolderer and Hall already in the Final 4... will it be Lamb or Ivanoff making up the quartet?
And he's already ahead of Lamb! He's in control and flying at the edge... idential times! Wow, down to the final turn! Yes, he's just scraped through with 52.146 and he's in!
