After a mixed round of results in Darwin last month, players of the Castrol EDGE V8 Predictor are divided as to who will reign supreme at this weekend’s Sucrogen Townsville 400.

Statistics show Jamie Whincup is still predicted to finish atop the Townsville round rostrum, however the recent show of speed by Ford Performance Racing has Mark Winterbottom also highly placed among predictors.

Vaulted back into popularity are both Tekno Autosport cars of Jono Webb and Shane van Gisbergen after the pair secured the top two spots respectively, during the previous V8 Supercars round in Darwin.
