And he's made it! It's 54.900 for Sonka!
FINAL 4 LINE UP:
MUROYA // KOPFSTEIN // DOLDERER // SONKA
Dolderer: "That flight was really good. The wind picked up a bit. I will just try to fly clean."
First to fly in the Final in Chiba: Yoshi Muroya!
This is it! Come on Muroya!
It's solid, a little correction, but he's looking good out there and the fans are going wild!
One last push for the finish gate!
It's 55.288 for Muroya and it's clean!
That looks like a podium-worthy time... but what will the others deliver?
Kopfstein is next – his first time in the Final 4 and no doubt he'll be keen to make the most of it...
194.9kts into the track for the Czech pilot
He's red on the split times... but whatever the result, this will be a career best
And it's red again... he can't quite catch Muroya!
And Kopfstein is +0.558 behind the Japanese pilot with 55.846!
Muroya is guaranteed a podium :)
Dolderer and Sonka left to fly...
196kts through the start gate for Dolderer
And here he comes... it's green at the first split!
He's losing a little time but it's still a green...
Taking a seriously tight line... it paid off!
- Pylon Hit!
And no! We spoke too soon! There's the pylon and the buzzer... at Gate 11 just as he was home and dry...
Dolderer records 57.943 and sits in third with just Sonka to fly
