Petr Kopfstein is into the track at 198.69kts, and he's ahead of Dolderer through the chicane and through Gate 6, but his speed is dropping and Kopfstein can't match the German's superior speed. It's a great performance from Kopfstein and consistent, clean and sharp. A first sub-59 for the Czech pilot as he posts 57.840 in his first Run.
Almost halfway! Hope you're all enjoying the ride today!
With a DQ result in his second run, Le Vot takes his Run 1 time of 59.073
Britain's Murphy next up to take on the track in the French Riviera... he has a solid run under his belt so far, but there's a wobble in Gate 9 as he flies too high through, and he's lost his rhythm in the track. There's a call to knock if off from the Race Director for exceeding maximum G... a DNF result.
Matt Hall cleared into the track.
