Brageot first up in this heat, and he's through the Start Gate at 199kts... speedy and refined, he's going VERY quickly out there and the VTMs looking pretty good.
Sonka first out in Heat 9 and this is the first time he actually goes head to head with another pilot this weekend... Sonka was fast in the R14, and he's looking comfortable, a little conservative in the first turn but we need to see a little more pace now.
Le Vot up next... he went 57s in the Round of 14 so has the capacity to take a place in the Round of 8
Le Vot cleared into the track... he's under the bridge and through the Start Gate on point at 199kts... the pace is looking good but he's not recreating his form from earlier today... he really has to find some pace and he's now seriously under pressure
Goulian just has to keep calm and keep flying those race lines... there's no head to head in the Final 4, he just has to get through
Goulian under the bridge, a little pitch through the racetrack and he's through the chicane and up to Gate 7... he's green in the splits and that was to be expected but Goulian picks up +2s... he's now skirting in dangerous territory as he cannot afford another mistake
