The 1970 Belgian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Spa-Francorchamps on June 7, 1970. It was the fourth round of the 1970 Formula One season.

March driver Chris Amon set the new lap record at this race, at a speed of 152 miles an hour. Race winner Pedro Rodríguez had set a 160 miles an hour lap in a sports car race the week before the Grand Prix. It was also Rodriguez's last victory in Formula One, and BRM's first victory since Jackie Stewart won the 1966 Monaco Grand Prix. This was the second Formula One win ever for a Mexican driver, and as of the conclusion of the 2015 Formula One season, the most recent.

This was the last Formula One race to be held on the original Spa circuit. It was also the last Formula One victory for Dunlop.
