Pete McLeod: "It felt good out there and it went to plan. I just went max risk on everything second time and was able to fly clean. I was surprised to hear the 54s. That's pretty fast. I think I'm flying efficiently out there. I hit a couple of pylons on Friday so it's not that easy a track. You don't get any points for Qualifying but ultimately tomorrow's a new day. I won't be doing my Q2 run in the first run tomorrow, it's too much of a risk."
KAZAN MASTER CLASS QUALIFYING QUICK RESULTS:
CHALLENGER CUP OFFICIAL STARTLIST (CHIBA RACE):
Now it's the Challengers! We don't have a live broadcast for you today, but tomorrow's race will be shown :)
Here comes Kenny Chiang! He's into the track and he will set the pace for his fellow Challengers in Kazan
- Pylon Hit!
And there's the first pylon hit at Gate 4!
That's 3s in penalties and a 1:10.196 for the pilot from Hong Kong
She stopped the clock in 1:05.924, which was ahead of Chiang and Czepiela
- Pylon Hit!
Astles is in the track and it's not the run she would have hoped, with a pylon hit at Gate 4!
That will make hard work for her now she has 3s in penalties to overcome
But the split times are showing that she's making up time... but it's not enough for the win... 1:09.771 for Astles and she's in 3rd place with 4 pilots to fly
Poland's Luke Czepiela is the next pilot to fly... he finished in 3rd in FP3 and is a definite contender
He's currently in 3rd place overall on 14 points and had a good result in Budapest, where he finished in 2nd behind Florian Berger
So the pylon is back up and we'll have Czepiela on his way any minute now...
We'll be back tomorrow with the race action from 1200 local time and hope you'll join us again!
Welcome back to Kazan and Race Day here in Russia...
