Andrew Danyliw in the No. 50 AF Corse Ferrari spun on his way up through Eau Rouge and came to a stop in the middle of the track.
An unsighted Andrew Howard in the No. 107 Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT3 clipped the Ferrari, before slamming into the tire wall on the other side of the track.
Danyliw’s Ferrari was then hit by Xavier Maassen in the No. 85 HTP Motorsport Mercedes, Tim Müller in the No. 458 GT Corse by Rinaldi Ferrari and the second Boutsen Ginion McLaren of Alex Demirdjan.
Within seconds the race was back under caution. Work on the track was still going on at the end of the third hour.
