Held on the Francorchamps circuit in Belgium this sports car meeting saw a further clash between Lister, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Jaguar unlimited capacity sports ears. The Ecurie Ecosse entered their modified 3.8-litre Lister-Jaguar and driven by Masten Gregory it easily outpaced the two factory 3.9-litre Aston Martins driven by Paul Frere and Carroll Shelby. The meeting was marred by a fatal accident to Scott-Brown when he crashed the works Lister-Jaguar while engaged in a duel for the lead with Gregory on the sixth lap. The Scuderia Ferrari entered an experimental car of 3-litres capacity driven by Gendebien but it had to retire with gearbox trouble. This was a V12 cylinder with four overhead camshafts, in a new chassis frame with a new four-speed gearbox mounted on the left of the final drive unit and having the hydraulically-operated clutch, and starter motor mounted at the rear of the propeller-shaft. Front suspension was by normal Ferrari sports car double wishbones and coil springs while at the rear a de Dion layout was used with transverse leaf-spring and the cockpit had a right-hand-drive seating arrangement. The engine ran to 9,500 r.p.m. and there was little power below 6,000 r.p.m. which made starting from rest very difficult.
