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 – shuffled in the standings.

The Speedcafe.com Team slipped back one spot to second on the Expert leaderboard after a tremendous round by Oliver Gavin who scored a whopping 49 points for the round. He now leads the Expert field by 12 over Speedcafe.

James O’Connor sits in third on 147 points while Russell Ingall gained some ground on the international rugby star but still remains fourth on 109 points.

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.
