GP Impanis-Van Petegem is a single-day road bicycle race held annually since 1982 in the region of Flemish Brabant, Belgium. The race was originally organized as a tribute to Raymond Impanis in and around Kampenhout and known as the GP Impanis. Between 1995 and 2004, the race was no longer organized, only to be reinstated in 2005 as a race only for juniors (under 21). In 2011, the race was again organized for professional cyclists and upgraded to a 1.2 event on the UCI Europe Tour. It was also renamed to GP Impanis-Van Petegem in name of Peter Van Petegem. Since then the race starts in the birthplace of Van Petegem, namely Brakel and finishes close to Kampenhout, namely in Haacht. The race became a 1.1 event in 2012 and was upgraded to 1.HC in 2015.
