International V8 Supercars Championship

The 2013 Dunlop V8 Supercar Series was the fourteenth running of the V8 Supercar Development Series, a support series to the International V8 Supercars Championship.

The introduction of the "New Generation V8 Supercar" regulations to the V8 Supercar championship resulted in a series of rule changes which affected the Dunlop Series. Teams were only allowed to compete with one model of the cars raced in V8 Supercars; all teams competing with the Ford BF Falcon upgraded to the FG model, whilst the Holden teams continued to use the VE Commodore.

With all V8 Supercar teams building brand-new chassis for the 2013 season to comply with the New Generation V8 Supercar regulations, many of the cars they used in 2012 were sold to Dunlop Series teams.
