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 Super2 Series. Shae Davies, Jack Le Brocq and Bryce Fullwood are the teams Current Drivers.

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.

For 2017, the team will switch to Nissan and run a pair of Nissan Altima[2] Supercars, although Bryce Fullwood will campaign an older generation Ford FG Falcon up until the Townsville round, where he is expected to upgrade to the COTF Nissan Altima. They will then become the first non Holden or Ford Team in the series.
