1938 1939 European Championship season none

The 1939 Grand Prix season was the seventh and final AIACR European Championship season. The championship winner was never officially announced by the AIACR due to the outbreak of World War II less than two weeks after the final event in Switzerland. With the war in full swing, Grand Prix racing was suspended in Europe until 1946.
