The 1968 Belgian Grand Prix was Round 4 of the 1968 Formula 1 World Championship. The event was held at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium on Sunday, 9 June 1968. Chris Amon started on pole position for Ferrari and Bruce McLaren was the race winner in the McLaren Ford.

Following the first appearance of a winged F1 car at the previous race, the 1968 Monaco Grand Prix, Brabham and Ferrari added distinct rear wings to their cars at this event to give them extra downforce.
