The 2010 Shannons V8 Touring Car National Series is the third running of the V8 Touring Car National Series. The series takes place on the program of Shannons Nationals Motor Racing Championships events. The Series began at Symmons Plains Raceway on 10 April and finished at Sandown Raceway on 24 October. Entries were hit hard in 2010 with just seven cars appearing across the opening two rounds and only three appearing at both of the first two events. Entries picked up after that, peaking at 14 cars at Winton.

Experienced V8 Supercar racer Tony Evangelou clinched the championship a round early at Eastern Creek Raceway. Evengelou won eight of the 15 races, including all five rounds. Evangelou dominated the point score, over 200 points ahead of Terry Wyhoon, who moved into second place passing Chris Smerdon at the final round. Wyhoon collected four of the race wins Evangelou did not with the other three won by Dean Neville, Scott Loadsman and Sam Walter.
