James Moffat (born 18 June 1984) is an Australian racing driver who currently competes for the Dick Johnson Racing team in the 2012 International V8 Supercars Championship. He is the son of touring car legend Allan Moffat.

James began racing at club level before moveing up to national level racing in a one-make series for Lotus Elise production cars, finishing runner-up in a tight championship fight, before graduating into V8 Utes in 2005.

After a lean 2006, Moffat returned in 2007 in a Sonic Motor Racing Services liveried Mygale in the Australian Formula Ford Championship and, despite little previous open wheel experience, finished third in the championship. Staying with the team Moffat progressed to their Carrera Cup program where he again ran at the front of the field, racing against his half-brother Andrew Moffat and others.

Co-inciding with the collapse of the Carrera Cup, Moffat moved into Team Sonic's newly established V8 Supercar program and finished second in the 2009 Fujitsu V8 Supercar series. At the season ending V8 Supercar prizegiving, Moffat received the Mike Kable Young Gun Award in recognition of his efforts as a first year V8 Supercar driver.

In late January 2011, Dick Johnson Racing announced that they had signed Moffat for 2011, to drive the number 18 car that Holden-bound James Courtney had driven the year before. It is the first time in 22 years that the Moffat name has competed in the top level of Australian touring car racing.
