The 2013 Catalunya GP2 Series round was a GP2 Series motor race held at the Circuit de Catalunya in Montmeló, Spain on 11 and 12 May 2012 as the fourth round of the 2013 GP2 Series season.[1] The weekend also saw the first round of the 2013 GP3 Series season,[2] and the debut of the GP3 Series' second-generation chassis, the Dallara GP3/13.[3]

Robin Frijns took his—and team Hilmer Motorsports'—maiden GP2 Series victory in the feature race, ahead of Felipe Nasr.[4] Stefano Coletti took his second race win of the season in the sprint race, beating Frijns by six-tenths of a second and further secured his championship lead with the result.[5]

Tio Ellinas inherited pole position in the GP3 Series feature race when pole-sitter Kevin Korjus was given a grid penalty,[6] and he went on to win the race.[7] Aaro Vainio won the sprint race, leading home team-mate Korjus to give team Koiranen GP the lead in the teams' championship in after their first GP3 Series round.[8]
