The 2009 Turkish GP2 Race was the third race of the 2009 GP2 Series season. It was held on June 6 and 7, 2009 at Istanbul Racing Circuit at Istanbul, Turkey. The race was used as a support race to the 2009 Turkish Grand Prix.
The Feature race was won by Vitaly Petrov after an eventful Race which saw many safety car periods. Championship leader Romain Grosjean did not finish, like almost half the field. Lucas di Grassi of Racing Engineering won his first race of the season in Sprint Race after being given pole due to penalties issued after the feature race.
Karun Chandhok set the fastest lap in the Sprint Race, but he was not awarded a point for it. This is because he finished outside the top ten. The point for the fastest lap of the race goes to the driver inside the top ten, who was fastest around the circuit, in this case Vitaly Petrov. This allowed the Russian to increase his lead with an extra point.
