The pressure is really on Muroya now... he must progress to the Final if he wants to take the title from Sonka
Japan's favourite pilot is through the Start Gate at 149.62kts...
And Muroya has the better approach to the VTM and puts the clock in the green to keep his title hopes alive!
It's green all the way! Come on Muroya! He seems to have calmed those nerves and he wins his heat with a 1:04.557
Kopfstein V Dolderer to battle next
Kopfstein wants to taste that podium champagne here in Indy... but he'll need to beat the 2016 World Champion first
He's off the runway and into the air... making his way into the track at 148.72kts
He's halfway through the track and it's clean so far
Great work from the Czech pilot! It's a 1:05.741 and Dolderer really has to pull this one out of the bag
The German pilot is ready to go!
He's got to beat a 1:05...
And he's into the track at 151.52kts so he's faster from the start
And that first split time is green...
This is astonishing! It's green as he gains time again!
He's through with a 1:04.249!
Muroya and Dolderer are through to the Final 4 with Goulian V Velarde and Sonka V Hall to go...
Goulian is the next competitor... hoping to give those fans in the grandstand a stellar show now
Yoshi Muroya: "I like flying first in the Final 4 and there's no pressure. It's going to be the last flight so we'll just have fun."
