Latest Drivers's champion Germany Rudolf Caracciola(1938)

The European Drivers' Championship was an annual competition in auto racing that existed prior to the establishment of the Formula One world championship in 1950. The championship was run by the Association Internationale des Automobile Clubs Reconnus (AIACR), the forerunner to the FIA.

HistoryEdit

The European Championship was established in 1931 and ran until the end of 1939 with a hiatus from 1933–34, and awarded points to drivers based on the results of selected Grand Prix races. The championship was discontinued because of the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, and no champion was officially declared for the last season as the AIACR could not meet to publish an official set of championship results.
