The Australian Touring Car Championship, presently known as the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, is a motor racing competition open to Australia's premier touring car category. A driver's title has been awarded since 1960 and titles for teams and manufacturers are also currently awarded. Australia's most famous motor race, the Bathurst 1000, has contributed to the result of the championship since 1999. The second-tier Dunlop Super2 Series has been contested since 2000 and the third-tier V8 Touring Car National Series, for cars no longer officially registered as V8 Supercars, began in 2008.

The category had changed its name to V8 Supercars in 1997, but the championship was still called the ATCC for 1997 and 1998.
