No, I did not have his address to request a meeting or phone conversation with him.

Hans...Did you manage to get info from Manfred von Brauchitsch during your recent Euro visit?...
Instead I pursued other avenues, which led to the information that after the Swiss GP on 20 August 1939, the new European Champion was definitely still unknown. This unprecedented, impossible situation was to be settled "at the green table" during the next A.I.A.C.R meeting in October 39. It never took place because the countries involved were at war with each other. (Main Source: AUTOMOBIL-REVUE 1939, No.68, pg.10)
The next A.I.A.C.R meeting, which took place on 12 May 1940 at the Bellevue Palace in Bern (capital of neutral Switzerland), failed to settle the 1939 European Championship. Altogether, only 18 delegates attended and from the ones making up the Sporting Commission, only the Italian engineer Furmanik was present. Under these conditions a meeting was not to be considered.
