And she's trying to beat Chiang's 1:07.264 and after securing the track record with a 1:05 we know she's capable
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
Next up is Britain's Ben Murphy – and that's our first penalty of the day... it's 2s for incorrect passing of Gate 7
Murphy records 1:09.987 putting him down in 5th with Ryfa to go
Chiang is still holding on to the lead and Ryfa needs to beat 1:07.264 if he wants the top spot today
But this is a disaster for the Swedish pilot...
- Pylon Hit!
It's two pylon hits! Gates 4 and 7 and then incorrect level at Gate 14 – a massive 8s in penalties!
Ryfa – 1:14.115 and that is last place today
Chiang takes a maiden win today and that's an epic result for him!
Kenny Chiang: "I'm quite surprised! It's still not the perfect lap and we can work on it for the next race. I got a little bit lucky today and Baptiste also did an awesome job. I'm still learning and taking it one step at a time."
