The 2005 Holden Performance Driving Centre V8 Supercar Series was an Australian touring car series held for V8 Supercars. It was the sixth series held for second tier V8 Supercar teams. The season began on 18 March 2005 at Wakefield Park and finished on 27 November at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. The season consisted of seven rounds held across four different states. The series was expanded for 2005, incorporating the previously stand-alone support race at Bathurst 1000 into a series round and adding a finale on the support program of the Bigpond Grand Finale.

Dean Canto, driving for Dick Johnson Racing's two car team, dominated the expanded series, winning ten races, and five of the seven rounds, which made Canto the first multiple-champion of the series and directly led to a full-time return to V8 Supercar Championship Series with Garry Rogers Motorsport. Series runner up Paul Cruickshank Racing driver Warren Luff failed to score a win, staying in touch with Canto through consistency. Adam Macrow was the other multiple race-winner, taking victory four times, but some unlucky results saw him finish fourth in the points race behind Gary MacDonald. Shane Beikoff, Lee Holdsworth and Dale Brede took the remaining wins with Race 2 at Bathurst declared a no result after a multi-car collision blocked the track after just six laps.

Results and standings[edit]

The season consisted of seven rounds across four different states. Rounds 2-5 consisted of three races. The second race of each weekend saw the finishing order of race 1 reversed to form the grid, a 'reverse grid' race. Rounds 1, 6 and 7 consisted of a pair of races. Points were awarded for all cars who finished each race in finishing order. Points may have been offered beyond the 24th position but at no point during the season did more than 24 cars finish a race. Round 2's pair of races carried 50% more points than a single race elsewhere in the season.
