Plenty have given their predictions to v8supercars.com.au, but we won't know until this afternoonw whichdrivers, team and V8 Supercar has the ability to win the year's biggest race.
Jamie Whincup and Paul Dumbrell were so close last year - will they keep up their Sandown winning form and cross the line first, even starting up the back?
Mark Winterbottom needs to bounce back and was in a similar position last year before breaking through at Bathurst and taking his and Ford Performance Racing's first win. He starts from the front row
The Holden Racing Team is hungry and continues to improve, swarming Whincup on the podium at Sandown. Can Murphy make amends and help deliver Courtney his first win at Mount Panorama, as the only HRT Commodore in the running?
And what about the speedy Kiwis - all three in the top 10 in Fabian Coulthard, Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen, who's Commodore will start from ARMOR ALL Pole Position.
The great thing about this race is there really are so many combinations capable of winning it - and banking the all-important 300 Championship points.
