Castrol EDGE V8 Predictor team Real Racing #1 has taken round honours for the Wilson Security Sandown 500 event scoring themselves a $100 BP fuel card.

The Real Racing #1 team’s 122 points haul came with a prediction accuracy of 54% after they took full advantage of the new-to-2014 bonus points system which included an additional 60 points for correctly predicting a driver with a pole, a fastest lap and a race win.

In the overall league standings team Arne’s Mob has maintained the lead with team Murph also holding their spot second on the ladder. Team SCATTERS has moved back into third overall in the standings.

The most drivers’ points scored for the weekend went to Re Bull Racing Australia’s Jamie Whincup for his win of the first endurance event in 2014 with co-driver Paul Dumbrell.

Whincup and Dumbrell dominated proceedings at the Sandown 500 securing the race win, Armor All pole position and the fastest race lap.

The win sees Whincup extend his lead of the V8 Supercars Championship to 273 points over teammate Craig Lowndes.

In the Experts’ league Andy Priaulx took out his second consecutive round honours with 42 points for the Melbourne-based event.

Speedcafe.com  was second on 22 points with Greg Rust managing a minor score for the round with 12 points. Speedcafe.com continues to lead the race amongst the Expert predictors.
