Here's the Start List for the Final 4:
1. Nicolas Ivanoff (FRA)
2. Yoshi Muroya (JPN)
3. Mike Goulian (USA)
4. Martin Sonka (CZE)
Ivanoff possibly having some mechanical issues, so eyes on the French pilot's raceplane
Heartbreak for Ivanoff as the team try to resolve a mechanical issue. Awaiting news of the French pilot's start status
Ivanoff experienced issues in Abu Dhabi last year with wing issues, and unfortunately it's a Did Not Start (DNS) for Ivanoff here in 2019
Muroya was the fastest of the three pilots in the Round of 8
And here we are... the Final 4 is on!!!
Goulian seemed to be holding something back in his R8 performance, so let's see what the American pilot has got left in the tank.
Muroya has gone around 3/4s faster than Goulian's R8 time so there's work to do ffor Goulian... and he's cleared into the track!
Sonka into the track at 199kts and he's through the first VTM but the time is so close, as Sonka pulls hard around to Gate 7. Muroya has the advantage and Sonka is having to work really hard as he heads into the second VTM. It's SO CLOSE as Sonka executes a quick and efficient second VTM, but it's just not enough as Muroya takes the win, just 0.003s ahead. INCREDIBLE
