The 2014 Belgian Feature Race was the eleventh race of the 2014 GP3 Season held on August 23, 2014 at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. It was the first race of the 2014 Belgian round, followed by the sprint race.

ReportEdit

Luca Ghiotto claimed a shock debut pole in the wake of his team Trident's all-new line up. Another of their new drivers, Konstantin Tereshchenko, rolled his car at the Bus Stop chicane, effectively ending his weekend there. Marvin Kirchhöfer crashed on the warm-up lap in Saturday's feature race so also didn't start.

Emil Bernstorff led the first stage but pitted for tyres, handing Ghiotto back the lead. Despite his stunning qualifying form, the Italian fell beind by the end of the race which was riddled with crashes including that of Jimmy Eriksson and Patric Niederhauser, and finished 18th, while taking the spoils was Dean Stoneman, who won his second race of the season in another all-British podium rounded up by Dino Zamparelli and Nick Yelloly.

Finishing 8th and therefore taking reverse pole in the sprint race was championship leader Alex Lynn.
