In Belgium, the "GP Automobile de l'Exposition Internationale de l'Eau de LiÃ¨ge" was cancelled between the practice and the race because of the mobilisation which was proclaimed on Sunday 27th in August 1939. This was the last motorsport event in Belgium until May 1946 (the "Rallye-Surprise" of the Motor Union) and more seriously the GP des FrontiÃ¨res (June 9th) and the Belgium GP events (June 16).
The race at LiÃ¨ge was a sportscar race. The 1946 Belgium GP were in fact three sportscars races.
I have scanned the map of the track used for those practice. The circuit length was claimed 6 km.
Farina on Alfa Romeo 412 (w/o S.C.)
Villeneuve on Delahaye
Levegh on Talbot
Trintignant on Bugatti
Lord Selsdon on Lagonda
Herculens on M.G.
Actually the decision of cancelling the race was taken on Satursday. The two Alfas didn't practice that day. The reason was that, due to imminent risk of war, and the German border was the only 40km away from LiÃ¨ge, the authorities feared that panic could had heavy consequence if a large crowd was gathered to watch the race.
