We're ready for Goulian to take off now... and this is an evenly matched duel so either could make it into the Final 4
Goulian is into the track at 147.6kts
And he needs to really go for it!
- Pylon Hit!
But no! That's a pylon hit at Gate 3!
That's a real shame for the American, but great news for Velarde
It was looking really good and he just has to give this everything to try to compensate for those 3s!
And it's a 1:08.006 on the timesheet... will Velarde make the same mistake?!
Hello to our Spanish fans!
He's up in the air and through the Start Gate and it's fast – 150.53kts
It's all about flying cleanly now Velarde...
And it's green against Goulian's time...
He is looking closer to that podium! It's green again and he's looking really confident out there
Velarde takes this heat with a 1:06.075!
But this is the heat to watch! It's Sonka V Hall and the 2017 World Championship depends on this run
Here comes the standings leader and Fastest Loser from the Round of 14... it's Martin Sonka!
He has to give this full power if he wants to beat this week's fastest pilot Matt Hall!
Can he hold it together? And he needs to watch out for that final pylon!
It's a 1:04.995 and that could well be the run that makes him the World Champion...
