2009 Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series season
Previous: 2008 Next: 2010

The 2009 Fujitsu V8 Supercars season was the tenth running of the V8 Supercar Development series. It supported the 2009 V8 Supercar Championship Series, beginning on 19 March at the Clipsal 500 and ending on 6 December at the Sydney 500 after seven rounds.

With one race to spare, Jonathon Webb secured the championship, in doing so becoming the first driver from MW Motorsport to win the title after having competed in the very first championship for second-tier V8 Supercars. James Moffat took second place from David Russell at the final race of the season. Ford drivers filled the top seven places with Grant Denyer, Daniel Gaunt, Brad Lowe and Damian Assaillit filling those positions. The first Holden driver was Sam Walter, over 900 points behind Webb.

Webb did not win a race until the fifth round of the series at Queensland Raceway, but from there won every race bar one, where he was second, an irresistible charge for the championship that neither Moffat nor Russell had any answer to after the three drivers had been close for the first half of the season.
