Next to race is newcomer for 2017 Baptiste Vignes of France
Vignes makes his way through the Start Gate slowly – 182.7kts
Still learning his craft out there, the Frenchman is playing it safe and a clean run is the way to go
1:09.964 for Vignes and that's 5th place with 2 pilots to fly
The American pilot is in 4th overall in the current standings and has 10 points...
So far in this race... CZEPIELA // MURPHY // GENEVEY // ASTLES // VIGNES // CHIANG
Coleman is struggling out there and the split times are red all the way... plus that's a pylon hit at Gate 4 and 3s added
1:10.308 for Coleman and he's in 7th with just Ryfa left to fly today
Final pilot for today's Challenger Cup race is Daniel Ryfa of Sweden, sitting in 2nd place overall on 16 points – 12 behind leader Berger
This should be easy work for Ryfa with the German not racing
We spoke a bit too soon... it's 2s in penalties for Ryfa at Gate 14 just as he makes his way to the Finish
It's 1:07.190 for Ryfa and 2nd place for the rescheduled Chiba race result
