Two heats to go – with American Mike Goulian flying next against Chile's Cristian Bolton, then Dolderer and Brageot
PODLUNSEK: "I really didn't have the feeling I was so fast in the track – I was just trying to pick up the best lines. The conditions are not so easy, conditions bumpy, this track is really demanding but I am really enjoying it."
HALL: "I was really happy and I wasn't hanging it out to try to beat him. This whole year is about development and learning. At the moment it's just about learning to operate the new plane nicely."
And here comes Bolton into the track...
- Pylon Hit!
And there it goes! That's a pylon at Gate 4 – he is handing this to Goulian...
- Pylon Hit!
This is game over for the Chilean and here we go again, he's lost it out there with a second pylon hit!
You simply cannot afford 6s in penalties in these head to head heats... and his 1:08.286 is very unlikely to secure him a place in the R8 unless Goulian really makes a mess of this
Goulian is next once the Airgators have retreated... he's incoming now and the US fans will be cheering him on all the way!
Mikey G is in the track and he's been on exceptional form this week! We're seeing a big change in the team's fortunes...
And this is a good time for Goulian, it's all green so far... and then there's the buzzer for incorrect level at Gate 10 so an automatic 2s
But it's not a problem, Goulian gets 1:02.281 and he's through along with fellow American Kirby Chambliss
Last heat of the Round of 14 – France's Mika Brageot takes on Dolderer...
Our newcomer for 2017 is first into the track and he knows this will be an almost impossible task against Dolderer the Dominator
And Brageot can be proud of that effort, it's 1:01.200 on the clock
Dolderer last to fly and then we'll have our pairings for the Round of 8
And this should be a walk in the park for Dolderer...
It's all green through the split times... this is a done deal
Dolderer progresses with 59.186
DOLDERER LIVE FROM THE COCKPIT: "I took a safer line than yesterday and it's not the fighting line but it still looks good."
