It's red and looking a little ragged... red again and then the buzzer for being too low at Gate 10
It's a 1:07.754 for Chambliss' Q2 run and he's down in 12th... which will see him square up against one of his strongest opponents tomorrow
Now it's the turn of McLeod... the one to watch, something of a dark horse this season and very much within striking distance of the title
He's in 4th on the timesheet currently... can he beat Hall's time?
Or more importantly, does he have more in the tank to improve upon his Q1 time? It doesn't look like it... it's a 1:05.667 for McLeod and he stays in 4th
Muroya and Sonka to fly...
With Chambliss and McLeod done for the day it's up to these two competitors to beat Hall's time...
Muroya is into the track at 137.6kts and he's much smoother in the chicane and first VTM
He's red on the split times...
But there's worse news to come with late penalties! It's 4s in total added at Gates 16 and 18!
Muroya's Q2 is a 1:10.103 and he's down in 11th place... which will put him against a key rival tomorrow
Last to fly... it's Sonka
Currently in 5th place on the Qualifying timesheet... Sonka is red on the clock
The favourite to take Dolderer's crown is red all the way through... and it's a 1:05.463 for Sonka's Q2
Martin Sonka: "We have to analyse the data, we struggled with the engine a bit in the first flight. We will need to be well prepared for the change in wind direction tomorrow. Race Day will be challenging and our tactics will be to fly fast and smooth with no penalties."
