The Speedcafe.com Team slipped back one spot to third on the Expert leaderboard after a tremendous round by James O’Connor who finished sixth overall for the weekend’s predictions and now moves to second on the Expert leaderboard.

Oliver Gavin maintains his lead in the Expert field while Russell Ingall gained some ground as he sits in fourth on 118 points.

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