King Kirby up next... if he loses to Muroya his championship hopes could well be dashed
This is a critical round!
Chambliss enters the track at 199.07kts
Let's watch out for that first split time... it's red! This is looking good for Muroya
And he's losing time through the track... he just can't claw it back
It's home time for Chambliss with a 51.398
Muroya joins Hall in the Final 4
Brageot: "It's unbelievable and I had a really good feeling in the track. It's incredible and we were so close to the Final 4. The team knows we are on the way – we are not lucky – we are using the skills and we know we can do it."
Third of the heats now, it's Kopfstein V Velarde – a great match and either could make it through
Kopfstein is in 5th overall and if he lands on the podium this could really get him close to the title... it's a longshot but it could happen – he's currently 10 points behind Muroya
First of the Czech pilots, here comes Kopfstein!
And there is our first absolute shocker of this round! It's an over G for Kopfstein before he's even through the first lap!
It's a DNF and Velarde now is looking set for the Final 4
Velarde flies into the track and he'll know about Kopfstein's result... and he's into the track at just 191.14kts
All he needs is a safe run and to make it to the Finish Gate...
He's happy with a 52.216 and an automatic place in the Final 4 – a definite spoiler at the WC party today
Last head to head – it's McLeod V Sonka – our current 1st and 2nd place pilots in the overall standings
Who is going home early? And who will move ahead in the standings – Sonka could take the title here today!
198.68kts into the track for McLeod... and this one is the run that counts today
He cannot afford to leave anything behind against Sonka
It's a clean and confident 50.898 from McLeod and Sonka was marginally faster in the R14 so he has it in him to take this one
