Fabien Giroix and Antoine Leclerc are replaced by Mathias Beche and local driver Vanina Ickx. Ickx had previously planned to drive in Abu Dhabi, but seating issues forced her to withdraw prior to the event. Following their Championship Race victory in Abu Dhabi, Clivio Piccione and Stef Dusseldorp enter Zolder at the leaders in the Drivers' Championship by three points over Peter Dumbreck and Richard Westbrook, while their Hexis AMR team leads the Teams' Championship over JR Motorsports by eleven points.
