The 2009 Belgian GP2 round was the seventh race of the 2009 GP2 Series season. It was held on 29 August and 30, 2009 at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps at Spa, Belgium. The race was used as a support race to the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix. PartyPokerRacing.com Scuderia Coloni, along with their drivers Andreas Zuber and Luiz Razia, were forced to miss the round due to unresolved financial disputes.[1] Álvaro Parente achieved the first pole position in his GP2 Series career, and also recorded the first pole for his team Ocean Racing Technology.[2] A day later, the Portuguese driver won the 100th race in GP2 history — again the first for his team — and the second of his career.[3] Diego Nunes, Dani Clos and Nelson Panciatici were given 25-second time penalties by the race stewards as a result of various incidents during the feature race.[4]
