Yesterday's Qualifying saw 250,000 fans take in the action and we expect even more today! The atmosphere here along the Douro River is simply sensational!
First to fly in the head to heads is Mika Brageot, flying the Breitling Sky Racer
And this is good! It's green again for Kopfstein and he stops the clock at 1:07.886 and goes through!
It's the most exciting pairing coming up now with defending World Champion Dolderer V Matt Hall
Brageot: The feeling is really good. It's a great pleasure to be in the next round. The conditions are amazing, no turbulence. I flew the best I can and we are still in the game. It's fantastic.
Textbook flying, says Bonhomme
Podlunsek was fastest in one of the Free Practice sessions this week
Muroya, on the other hand, has had a tough week – technical issues meant he had to sit out FP1 and 2
But Podlunsek mustn't rest on his laurels as Muroya's net time yesterday was very good
He's setting the pace here for Muroya and it's a little cautious... he stops the clock in 1:08.287 clean
And the Japanese pilot is into the track at 179.34kts
He's red on the first split!
