    The race was run on the Automobil Verkehrs und Übungs Straße, (also known as AVUS), a public road that also served as a racing circuit, in south-west Berlin.

    The race's official was the "Avusrennen".

    The race was run on 2 August 1931.

    Rudolf Caracciola won the race, driving a Mercedes-Benz.
