Vitor Meira (born March 27, 1977 in Brasília, Brazil) is an auto racing driver currently competing in the IndyCar Series. He has twice finished second in the Indianapolis 500.

After participating in an open test for Panther Racing at Texas Motor Speedway in 2002, he made his IndyCar debut with Team Menard on August 11, 2002 at Kentucky Speedway. A little over a month later, Vitor won his first career pole at Texas Motor Speedway after just four starts, and finished in third place.

In 2003, Meira ran his first start of the year for Team Menard at the Indianapolis 500, where he finished 12th as a rookie. Meira then ran the next seven races in the #2 Johns Manville powered Dallara Chevrolet, until a practice crash at Kentucky Speedway sidelined him for the next three races. After recovering from his wrist injury he suffered at Kentucky, Vitor ran the final two races of the season.
