1995 Australian Touring Car season
Previous: 1994 Next: 1996

The 1995 Australian Touring Car season was the 36th 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.

Two major touring car categories raced in Australia during 1995, V8 Supercar and Super Touring. Between them there were 24 touring car race meetings held during 1995; a ten-round series for V8 Supercars, the 1995 Australian Touring Car Championship (ATCC); an eight-round series for Super Touring, the 1995 Australian Super Touring Championship (ASTC); support programme events at the 1995 Australian Grand Prix and 1995 Indycar Australia, two stand alone long distance races, nicknamed 'enduros'; the fourth and final running of the Winfield Triple Challenge at Eastern Creek Raceway and the TAC Peter Brock Classic held at Calder Park Raceway.
