Hall: "I am unaware of what happened. I backed off. I haven't done an early pull in a Gate for six or seven years so I need to go and have a look."
Possibly the most dramatic heat up next with Dolderer V McLeod... this could be wild!
German pilot Dolderer goes first and he will have to lay it all out there to ensure he beats the Canadian...
He's into the track and great VTM, well handled and he's got his mojo out there!
He is really taking this line to the extreme, nothing left in reserve, this is fighting talk
It's 55.333 for Dolderer!
He's right on the money there and McLeod will have to match that war cry with a roar!
Great start and this is green!
Flying a wider line here... but that's the call from the Race Tower and it's another over G!
McLeod gets a DNF and game well and truly over for the Canadian...
Great news for Dolderer who joins Muroya and Kopfstein in the Final
Last heat of the Round of 8 – Goulian V Sonka
After the last few runs, we don't want to call it just yet!
Goulian flies first... and he's into the track at 194kts
Steady, smooth... but that's not so fast and he's taking it cautiously...
The wind is picking up and caution could be needed to stay within the rules...
Goulian is good – 55.018 and that's his best time of the week
But Sonka should have this one... he flew 54.787 in the Round of 14
And here comes the second of the Czech pilots looking for a place in the Final...
And he's in the green! We can see the comparison with Goulian's line and he's looking to gain an advantage as the split times remain green...
And he's made it! It's 54.900 for Sonka!
