Ryfa was fastest in both FP1 and FP3 earlier this week and he says he's comfortable in the track
Qualifying was a tough round for him though after the raceplane he was flying had technical issues and this was something of a distraction, leaving him in 5th
Ryfa is cleared into the track and he's off! Will he deliver on his words from yesterday...
And he's green with ease at the first split time and this is fantastic flying! It's green again and he's well ahead of Czepiela's pace!
59.931 is a PB for Ryfa and that's faster than Berger has achieved so he'll have to give this everything
Berger, Genevey and Murphy to fly
Florian Berger is here and ready to wow the home fans in Germany
Here we go! Berger is ready!
He may be young but this 2016 Challenger Cup champion has impressed so far in his racing career
It's green! He's giving Ryfa a real run for his money... and it's green again!
That's soooo close... but he's losing time at the second VTM and it's red just when it counts
59.944 for Berger and he moves into 2nd behind Ryfa
With 2 to fly, this is how it's looking so far – RYFA // BERGER // CZEPIELA // ASTLES
Daniel Genevey, flying for Hungary, will fly next
Genevey needs at least to finish in 4th if he wants to progress to Indy... so we need to see a controlled run here
- Pylon Hit!
And that is not the start he would've hoped for! It's a pylon down at Gate 3!
The splits are red and this could give Astles a second chance...
The buzzer goes again at Gate 10 for incorrect level and he will not go to the final...
It's 1:08.132 for Genevey as he picks up a final penalty for climbing in Gate 14... that is a shocker...
Looks like he lost his nerve out there when it mattered and that puts him in 5th with just Murphy to fly, who was fastest in Qualifying yesterday
Will Murphy bring his military mindset to the track today... he needs nerves of steel if he wants to make it through
And it's red on the splits... this is tense!
There's the red again and then the buzzer for incorrect level at Gate 10! Will he be able to hold it together..
Rolling too early out of Gate 10 caught him out and Murphy stops the clock in 1:03.249 with 2s added
