2007 V8 Supercar season
Previous: 2006 Next: 2008

The 2007 V8 Supercar season was the 48th year of touring car racing in Australia since the first runnings of the Australian Touring Car Championship and the fore-runner of the present day Bathurst 1000, the Armstrong 500.

There were 15 touring car race meetings held during 2007; a fourteen round series for V8 Supercars, the 2007 V8 Supercar Championship Series (VCS), two of them endurance races and a seven round second tier V8 Supercar series 2007 Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series (FVS), all bar one of those was a double-header with a V8 Supercar Championship Series round.

This season saw a change of television broadcaster; the Seven Network having picked up the broadcasting rights to V8 Supercars from Network Ten which had broadcast the past nine seasons in succession. However, the Seven Network does not broadcast the Albert Park race meeting, which is a non-championship event; rather, it is broadcast on Network Ten as a lead-in to the Australian Grand Prix.
