The field looked somewhat reduced as, just before the race was to begin, a number of drivers could not compete due to load shedding.

Jadwat started from pole position to maintain his lead through La Source (turn 1). The opening laps saw a good fight develop between Johannes Coetsee (JVR GhostworX) and Markus Steyn (GhostworX 3.0) for 2nd position. Starting from 3rd Coetsee managed a good exit from Eau Rouge to run alongside Steyn up Kemmel Straight to eventually pass him around the outside line at Les Combes. Chris Browne (GhostworX 3.0) looked to join the battle for 2nd place until a spin at Stavelot put him out of contention.

After falling back from Coetsee, Lap 7 saw Steyn fighting back. A slight error by Coetsee at La Source allowed Steyn near enough to make an exciting pass at Eau Rouge.

2014 Drivers Champion Basheer Jadwat was left unchallenged to claim his 13th win of the season, Steyn went on to win his fight for 2nd with Coetsee.
