Nanni asks for info on this, apparently a recent discovery, judging from the entry no.:

Please add new material, if you have any.

I'm always wondering...
Motorsportmemorial often indicates the sources at the end of its entries.
If Nanni or someone else actually has these sources, why doesn't he make them available for us?
It would really help.
The Autosprints, some newspaper articles, etc.

I don't think Nanni owns the sources, the contributors do.
Racing is living and everything that happens in between is just waiting.

I get everything from him in terms of visual media, and upload it here, immediately. Possibly, most of the sources are articles, mentions.

Well, I've often looked for sources that were mentioned in the Motorsportmemorial entries, and, sometimes, I found some new stuff.

Etienne Monseur

Source:
http://www.grenzecho.net/epaper/grenzecho/1998/03/30/25

Age at death: 33

Variant: 1998, fourth special stage (What’s strange about that: The text says the Rally was running for no longer than one hour and that the 4th ss was already underway.)

Notes:
The 4th ss started in the small town of Hulsionnaux (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hulsonniaux)
Driver Olivier Collard suffered several (unspecified number of, at least two) broken ribs and a punctured lung. His injuries were severe but non-life-threatening. He was able to free himself from the car. Monseur, though, was trapped in the car and was only removed from the wreckage some time later with the help of the rescue team.
Monseur was reported to be from Marche. He most likely was a resident of the town.
The rally was continued after the accident. “Musikanimation”, literally translated into music(al) animation and the victory celebration were cancelled as a sign of respect.




André Clement
http://motorsportmemorial.org/focus.php?db=ct&n=1864

Source:
http://www.grenzecho.net/epaper/grenzecho/1988/05/24/18

Series: Belgian Rally Championship (“national rally championship”)

Variant: 1988, second special stage, Les Basses

Vehicle brand/model: Ford Sierra Cosworth

Notes: Their car left the road, went down a 20 meter embankment and landed on the railroad line between Liège and Jemelle (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jemelle). Dethier escaped from the wreckage on his own and tried to help his unconscious co-driver when a train that was transporting Italian guest works approached the scene. Although the conducter initiated an emergency stop immediately, the collision with the car was unavoidable. The car exploded into flames and the train came to a rest only about 500 meters later. Clement, a 38 year old police inspector who worked in Namur, was killed instantly.
Jean-Marc Gaban, driving a Porsche, won the event. It was his first victory in the Belgian national rally championship.

Notes:
On May 22, 2016, the Campeonato Nacional de Motocross de Honduras visited the “La Lomita” track, Tegucigalpa, for the fourth round of the season. For unknown reasons, Moncada tried to run across the track in the middle of the race. He was waiting for an opportunity to cross the track but, probably blinded by dust, did not see oncoming riders. He ran straight into the path of Guatemalan rider Vicko Castillo. Castillo who was still in mid-air after taking a jump had absolutely no chance of avoiding the spectator and hit him at full speed before he was thrown from his bike. Moncada’s body came down lying in the middle of the track. The following riders were unaware of what happened in front of them just a few seconds before. José Mario Reyes, Rodrigo Santamaria, Erick Trejo and Diego Castro ran over Moncada’s body. Moncada died on the spot.
