The European Drivers Championship is an annual competition in auto racing. It is established in 1930, and awards points based on where they finished on selected Grand Prix races, the so called Grandes Épreuves.

History

It was established in 1930 using Formula Libre rules. The calendar consisted of the Belgian and French Grand Prix. Louis Chiron took home the first title after winning Belgium and finishing in France. The success of the first season led to the expansion of the series to a five round calendar with Italy, Monaco and Germany being included in the series. In 1932, Baconin Borzacchini then took home the title after finishing on top in Germany.

In 1934, the AIACR introduced a maximum weight limit of 750 kg for Grand Prix cars. This lasted until 1937 where the Germans had over 600 horsepower which had more use than expect to be used with that weight limit. When in 1938, the new formula also include limiting the engine size. Cars with a supercharger were permitted to have an engine size between 666 cc and 3000 cc, whereas normally aspirated cars were allowed between 1000 cc and 4500 cc.

In 1939, war broke out and AICAR couldn't post the official results and with that the European Drivers Championships was finished as it was history.
