Heat 2 (re-run): Lahti, Lampart, Wright, Bager, 66.77 (8-4)
Wright and Bager moved there. This is catching. Lampart went from fourth to second by the end of lap one but could not quite overhaul Lahti.

From the gate.
Heat 8 (re-run, awarded): Lahti, Doyle, Dryml (FX), Lampart (FX) (27-20)
Lampart went down wide out on the first bend and is excluded. On the re-run the Eagles were on a maximum and looked to have it nailed until Dryml had a spectacular crash on bend two of the last lap. His bike practically went half way down the back straight on its own.
Heat 9 : Lahti, Stead, Kildemand, Bager, 67. 67 (30-23)
Stead goes from fourth to second and passed Lahti on the back straight of the final lap, only for the Eagles man to hit back on the last two bends.

Simple stuff. A third 5-1 of the night for Andersen and Doyle.
Heat 11 : Batchelor, Kylmakorpi (tac), Dryml, Wright, 68.08 (38-29)
Batchelor is out first and there’s no catching him.
Heat 12 : Stead, Lahti, Lampart, Woodward (R), 68.58 (42-31)
Woodward overcooked it wide out on bend three lap two and his challenge for second is over. He later retires. Stead forced his way past the impressive Lahti mid-race.
Heat 13 : Andersen, Kylmakorpi, Batchelor, Bager, 67.53 (46-33)
Andersen bravely passed Kylmakorpi when there wasn’t much room wide out on bend two. Bager gave it a go against Batchelor but just didn’t have the speed.
Heat 14 : Lampart, Woodward, Kildemand, Lahti, 69.12 (50-35)
Kildemand storms round the outside on bend two as per. Woodward inches past at the start of lap three but then on bend two Lampart cheekily nips past both of them on the inside.
Heat 15 : Andersen, Woodward, Kylmakorpi, Doyle, 68.47 (53-38)
Andersen storms to his maximum. Wasn't he supposed to be injured?
