GR8 picks up this fantastic prize pack for his round win!

The opening event of the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship has been run and won, and while most people will consider Craig Lowndes the leader of the title, there’s another competitor who has taken an early lead.

Top honours in the opening round of the Castrol EDGE V8 Predictor has gone to ‘GR8’ with a whopping 62 points and 54 percent prediction accuracy.

‘GR8’ wins an awesome merchandise pack including Castrol Racing and Speedcafe t-shirts, hoodies, retro caps, bar runners, The Annual season review book and plenty more goodies.

Its never too late to sign-up for the V8 Predictor with great round-by-round prizes on offer as well as the major prize. CLICK HERE to see how you fared in the Clipsal 500, or register and play for awesome event prizes.

Castrol EDGE’s four experts for the inaugural Castrol EDGE V8 Predictor – Russell Ingall (V8 Supercars champion), Oliver Gavin (2012 American Le Mans Series GT Champion), James O’Connor (Wallabies rugby superstar) and the Speedcafe.com team – saw a dead heat between the Speedcafe.com team and O’Connor, both on 35 points with a 30 percent prediction accuracy.

Ingall, who picked up five points for predicting himself one place off his actual result, was the next best placed expert with 27 points. Gavin had a less impressive round with the Englishman scoring 19 points for the Clipsal 500 round.

Using the same software as the popular ‘Grand Prix Predictor’ that international website Autosport.com uses for its Formula 1 tipping competition, V8 Supercars can now put their knowledge to the test with the Castrol EDGE V8 Predictor in 2013.

The major prize for the ultimate winner is a trip for two to the 2014 Clipsal 500 – including a hot lap of the track.
