Here's how the next knock-out heats are looking:
HEAT 8 Goulian vs Sonka
HEAT 9 McLeod vs Chambliss
HEAT 10 Dolderer vs Hall
HEAT 11 Besenyei vs Bonhomme
GOULIAN V SONKA up first... here we go!
Goulian is out into the track first and the wind is continuing to challenge the pilots... the American is keeping his cool out there and he's got the Czech pilot Sonka to beat if he wants a place in the Final 4
He's heading to the finish and it's 1:01.609! That's clean and could be enough...
Gusts up to 17kts out in the track and his experience is paying off. Over to Sonka next!
Sonka is making light work of this and it's all green so far! Well ahead... 1.53s ahead of Goulian and still time to make up!
Final stretch and he's on the money - it's clean and crisp! It's 58.698! WOW! He takes that with ease :)
MCLEOD V CHAMBLISS next...
McLeod is into the track and it's fast, aggressive but under control
The young Canadian is going to make this tough for Chambliss and he's got his eye on the podium for sure
He'll set the pace for his heat and he needs to be fast – and clean. Great vertical turn and it's a 58.912 and that's actually slower than Chambliss' time from the Round of 14...
But will Chambliss crack under the pressure? He's capable of beating the time but we'll have to see if he can bring his previous form to the Spielberg track today. Will he make the Final 4 for the first time in 2015? He's cleared into the track!
191kts into the track – that'll be tough to make up through the track... how are the split times? It's GREEN!
And green again... come on Kirby! You can do it!
And he's into the home straight and he could do it!
