The Barry Sheene Medal is an award dedicated to the memory of British motorcycle rider and Australian V8 Supercar commentator Barry Sheene. The medal is awarded to the driver who shows outstanding leadership, personality, fan appeal and sportsmanship throughout the V8 Supercar season. The winner is decided by votes taken from a panel of former drivers, commentators, and both on-track and metropolitan media. After a round, each panelist provides 3, 2 and 1 votes to the drivers which they thought displayed the characteristics that the medal is about.
