Now it's Ben Murphy who will be looking to take advantage of Bolton's DQ
The Brit is in the red on the split times behind Ryfa but it's enough to put him in second with a great performance out there for the German fans in the grandstands! It's a 1:04.947
But the local fans will be showing their full support for the next competitor out into the track – Florian Berger!
He's cleared into the track and we're off!
He's red on the split times and just can't keep up wit Ryfa... and then it's the buzzer just at the final moment at Gate 13... so that's 1:06.790 for Berger, putting him in 3rd place with just Luke Czepiela to race
And here we go! Czepiela is out in the track and the last pilot to fly in this rescheduled Challenger Cup race
And that's enough to get him on the podium! It's a 1:05.446 and he'll join Ryfa and Murphy!
AND THE MASTER CLASS QUALIFYING IS ABOUT TO BEGIN! HOPE YOU'RE SITTING COMFORTABLY :)
MASTER CLASS QUALIFYING STARTLIST:
Kopfstein is cleared into the track!
After being the second fastest in FP3, Kopfstein was really on his game... but this is not the best start as he clips a pylon at Gate 4 and that is 3s!
Wind conditions have changed in the track and that's going to affect that downwind pylon
So the airgators will be getting set... and Kopfstein completes his first run with 59.641 on the clock
And a quick pylon repair before he gets to aim for an improved run – he's out there trying to book place somewhere in the middle so he's not paired with the likes of Dolderer in tomorrow's Round of 14 head to heads
And he's back into the track, more settled in the track this time...
And he's improving on his sector times, this is good progress...
The Vertical Turn Manoeuvre here is key and in the final part of the track so you need to keep your wits about you right til the Finish Gate... and he's home and dry with 57.517
The 13 remaining pilots will be taking that on board as they asses how the track conditions have changed
Peter Podlunsek is out next and it's the buzzer from the off... it's incorrect level at the Start Gate and that is not how you want to start your run
And it's another 2s at Gate 3!
