Bad news for Dolderer... he's already been called up by Race Control for Over G :(
That is back to the hangar for a technical inspection... and a DNF for Dolderer
So one pilot to fly before we take a break...
Spain's Juan Velarde, flying three-time World Champion Paul Bonhomme's former race steed, is out into the track!
What a great performance from Velarde! Two great runs – 1:06.643 and 1:06.955 – have we found the new Mr Consistent?!
Velarde posts 1:06.643 to put him in 3rd place!
Final result Free Practice 3:
13. LE VOT
We're about to kick off the Challenger Cup Qualifying here in Ascot and it's looking great out on the track. Florian Berger of Germany is looking like the man to beat, closely followed by UK fan favourite Ben Murphy!
Berger is 2nd overall with 16 points to his name, behind Kevin Coleman of the USA who has had a phenonmenal first season!
Not long to wait... we're ready!
1. Florian Berger
2. Cristian Bolton
3. Kevin Coleman
4. Daniel Ryfa
5. Ben Murphy
6. Melanie Astles
Berger is into the track, beautifully done from the static start at Ascot Racecourse!
He's setting the pace today in Qualifying
It was looking a little high there for the German, but seems OK with the judges...
It's a 1:19.795 for Berger
That was 2s slower than in his earlier Free Practice run, so the conditions may have changed
Let's see what Chilean Cristian Bolton can do out there...
He's green on the first split time! And he's held it for the second one too!
Right on the 10G marker! This is good work for Bolton...
Split times are still in the green! He's home and dry with a 1:20.629 but it's under review...
That's +0.834 on Berger's time, putting him in 2nd with four to go...
And it's Kevin Coleman up next – we've seen great results for the American and he gained three consistent 2nd places... and we know consistency is the way to win titles
It's a 1:19 to beat so far and we think Coleman has plenty in the tank for another podium here
But it's not looking great, with 3 reds on the split times... then he recovers to make it GREEN! He's got something in that second lap that could give him the edge
