Did You Know...... that Rounds 7 and 8 of the Top 4 are now available?
Pressure on Hayabusa Defence
France Aerodyne Cypres Maubeuge managed once again to avoid a 1 at the beginning of the score for a slow sequence. In fact, the Side Body Donut of Block 2 was only a split second away. Only Arizona Airspeed has managed to score 20 or higher in each round of a 10-round competition. Rounds 9 and 10 are faster, and chances are very good that France will copy Airspeed's unique record.
Sinapsi continued with the upswing round by round and shook off both Russian teams in Round 8. Black Cat and Skylight Barkli both had bad rounds at the same time. Sinapsi is now safely in bronze medal position and is putting pressure on Hayabusa Defence. Sinapsi has won the last four rounds by one point, and both teams had 19-pointers in Round 8. Four points separate Belgium and Italy at the moment.
All Open Class teams combined for a total of eleven penalties in Round 8 (Skylight Barkli -3, Black Cat -2, Aerokart Pamiers Maubeuge -1, Magic 4 -1, Bad Boys -1, Portugal -1, Turkey -1, Cypres -1).
