MW Motorsport (formerly known as Matthew White Racing) is a V8 Supercar team that is competing in the second-tier Australian V8 Supercar series, the Dunlop V8 Supercar Series.

The team was formed by Matthew White in 2000 to further his own racing ambitions. Originally Matthew White Racing was a privateer V8 Supercar, specifically supporting White's career, but he took on a customer driver for the first time in 2002 and the team gradually changed over the next five years into a professional pay driver operation in the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series. The team made infrequent appearances at V8 Supercar endurance races.

The team was granted a wildcard entry for the 2009 L&H 500 and 2009 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.[1] Brad Lowe and Damian Assaillit drove the car to only modest results.

The teams greatest success was in the 2009 Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series when Jonathon Webb won the series winning all but one race in the second half of the season.

The team's current drivers are Andre Heimgartner, Morgan Haber and Ryan Simpson.
