The 2019 Supercup season is the 12th GPVWC Supercup season. From 2019 onwards, Supercup is no longer the second tier in the GPVWC Career Ladder, as the newly-created Superleague Lights championship was introduced between Supercup and Superleague at the end of 2018. While Supercup itself remained largely unchanged, the quest to fill the brand-new, more technically-orientated championship saw a great migration of teams from Supercup, and even Formula Challenge, directly into the Superleague Lights for the start of 2019.

One noticeable change for 2019 was the shift of race days; Supercup rounds now take place on Tuesdays, instead of the traditional Wednesdays.
