Good to see a lot of love on here for Ivanoff!
Here he goes... it's the flamboyant Frenchman into the track!
This could be a close run duel... but Ivanoff is in the red at the first split time
And it's red again at the second one... he's got to dig deep here in the final section of the track if he wants to be in the Final
And it's just not enough :( 01:05.888 and he's +1.363 off McLeod
We call him the smiling Spaniard here and we hope he'll have reason to be happy later today!
Velarde is into the track! Bonhomme predicts a strong result...
First chicane looks good and he's setting the pace for Lamb, but that's the buzzer!
2s for incorrect level at gate 4 and that could be game over...
And he's into the vertical turn here and really has to go hell for leather to make this count
And that's the buzzer again! 4s added in total and Lamb would really have to mess up...
Bad luck Velarde, that's 1:08.713 with 4s included
Lamb's in 7th overall and this race is an important one for him... he only has one more left in his race career and would love to go out on a high
- Pylon Hit!
But there it is... that's a pylon!
That is devastating... but wait... it's all green on the splits and it looks like he's through to the final!
UNBELIEVABLE! And he can't believe it either :)
And that 1:07.285 includes 3s in penalties so that's a great net time!
MCLEOD AND LAMB IN FINAL... two more spaces to fill!
McLeod at the Race Airport: "Tough one for Kirby and I felt that pain in Ascot. I got it done clean and I'm looking forward to the next flight. We've had some fast times in the track and I feel I can be competitive."
Big stakes now... for Hall and Dolderer in the last pairing...
Sonka to fly now and Hall needs to get the better of him to potentially stop Dolderer...
The Czech pilot will set the pace....
