So, perhaps because of some difficulties with the details of the English language, my understanding now is, that the 1935 European Championship was based on the results of all seven European Grande Epreuves, in particular including the French GP?

uechtel, that certainly seems to be the obvious conclusion from all the wonderful material presented by Hans.

The 1950 World Championship was composed of seven races (from 300 to 500 km), but included the Indy 500, deserted by european drivers.

So, in essence, the championship was composed of six races.

Therefore, we can say that the 1935 European Championship, with seven G.P. (all of 500 km), was even more "probative" or "convincing" than the 1950 "World" Championship...

Sorry for my poor English..

I believe that the 1935 CSI regulations for the European Automobile Championship should have remained valid over the years until 1939, when a change was considered but not implemented. If someone has knowledge that regulation changes took place for the 1936 European Championship, it would be worthwhile to let us know here. I do not have the time now to read my way through 1936-38 reports, so we need to rely on others to tell us. :wave:
