And that wraps up the fifth round of racing from Russia... what a ride! The super-fast track produced some unexpected results for the World Championship pilots. Victory for Sonka as he moves up the standings and makes his bid for the World Champion title... frustration for Hall who drops into third place overall after failing to progress to the Final 4 for the second time this season.
America's Mike Goulian goes to the top of the rankings, 6 points ahead of Sonka in second. We'll be back racing in Austria on 15-16 September, for the sixth round at an all-new location in Wiener Neustadt.
Stick around to watch the press conference, coming up at 14:00UTC/17:00 local time. And see you in Austria!!!
Kazan represents the fourth race of the season for the Challenger pilots. There's still everything to play for and without Florian Bergér and Daniel Ryfa flying this weekend, it gives the other pilots a huge opportunity to climb the leaderboard.
Just over an hour to go until our final Free Practice ahead of Qualification here in Kazan, Russia! This is what it takes to fly the @Redbullairrace , a new dimension of Motorsport ✈️🙌 #airrace #blades #motorsport #russia https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dlb6W2TXgAEnEBa.jpg
