English term or phrase: Who will hit the whole shot?
Event: South African F1 Powerboat Series, Rynvield Dam, Benoni, Gauteng, 12 November 2006, Round 3

Comment: Flags are up, starters orders ready. Poised. And who will hit the whole shot? Good start coming from No. 9 which is Robert Shepard and he had a brilliant heat in Heat No. 1. But look at the lighting stripe from Paul Shepard on the outside.

Problem: I was thinking of the "Startschuss", but isn't it clear who gives the starting shot? Might "hit the shot" be an idiom?

Nicht ganz sicher, aber das würde mir zu der geschilderten Situation einfallen.
