The 2001 Proximus 24 Spa World Championship GT was the 55th running of the Spa 24 Hours. It was also the seventh round the 2001 FIA GT Championship season, marking the first time that the FIA GT Championship had the Spa 24 Hours on their schedule. The addition of the FIA GT Championship turned the Spa 24 Hours from a touring car event into a sports car race.

This event combined the FIA GT's two classes (GT and N-GT) with cars from smaller national sports car series (designated Category 2) as well as cars from single-make series (designated Category 3). It took place at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, over August 4–5, 2001.
