Links: Round 6 result | Gallery

It would come down to the deciding round of quali at the 2018 IFMAR Worlds to determine overall TQ and it proved a bit of a fairytale round for Davide Ongaro who pretty much didn’t put a foot or tyre wrong, the Italian Associated driver bagging TQ by an impressive 7.5 sec margin from Ty Tessmann, Ongaro seemed a man on a mission as he floated his way round the track like a butterfly with laptimes that stung like a bee…

With the track packed out the question on everyone’s lips was, could Ronnefalk unseat Ongaro’s impressive performance ? The answer was a definitive no, as the Swede started out brightly but would struggle to make it cleanly over the step down jump, he had multiple moments across his run, ultimately costing him vital time that may have secured him overall TQ over Ty Tessmann, that said however going into the final round, Ronnefalk already had two throwouts and needed a good run, not a TQ one. He would finish behind a strong Spencer Rivkin in his heat taking 3rd overall infront of Ryan Maifield in 4th amidst paddock gossip regarding his engine. Standout performances from CJ Jelin and Tanner Stees to ensure they make it into the top 16 for Saturday.
