So we're just moments away from the first of today's sessions, with the Kazan Challenger Cup...
Here's the startlist:
Strong start for the Hong Kong pilot who had a tough day yesterday and finished in 7th
He's clean through the track and this is much better – it's 1:07.264 and that could put him much nearer the top of the timesheets today
WEBCAST IS WORKING – PLEASE REFRESH :)
Second of our Challenger pilots today is Baptiste Vignes, who finished yesterday in 6th
1:08.265 for Vignes and he's shaved off a second from yesterday's time
But it's not to be... 1:09.505 for Astles and she's the slowest so far, putting her down in 4th with two pilots to fly
10 MINUTES TO THE MASTER CLASS ROUND OF 14!
And it's a clean and steady run for Velarde, he stops the clock in 59.128
Here comes the American who has shown big improvements so far in 2017...
- Pylon Hit!
And that's a pylon! 3s at Gate 4 and that will very likely rule him out now
He's red on the split times and that's got to be a big distraction and a disappointment...
It's 1:00.531 for Goulian and he hands that to Velarde
Dolderer makes his way into the track and he really needs to progress here to get his title defence in motion
