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 Dolderer is into the track and he's got Lamb to beat here and he's in the green straight away
Only a mistake will stop Dolderer the dominator!
Bonhomme says he's feeling emotional watching this!
And this is how you win a World Championship!
1:03.335 gives Dolderer the 2016 World Championship title!
Well done Matthias :) :) :)
And that is what you might call a wrap from Indianapolis! What a thrilling and tense day of racing, culminating in elation for Matthias Dolderer! We'll be back in just a couple of weeks for the last round in Las Vegas and look forward to seeing you all there :)
