We could also send these updates (spectators killed in the 1928 Italian Grand Prix, Monza, Materassi's accident):

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=86&p=337268#p337268

Especially for that "Ormanoglou" guy, whose surname was written in every possible way (mm.org has "Omenognu", "Orsingher", "Obergout" and "Hobergant", while "La Stampa" wrote "Omerroghu").
I'm not sure "Ormanoglou" was his real surname, but at least it seems to exist, and the Corriere Della Sera also wrote his name, the father's name and the street where he lived.
Just for the record:

First "Omerroghu":

Then "Obergout" (in the same article):

And one case for further research: during first round of 1965 East Germany Formula 3 Championship held on 23 May 1965 at Halle-Saale racer Gerhard Schröter was scheduled to race Melkus 64 - Wartburg entered by MC Post Dresden but he didn't started.

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/formula2/F365_E4.htm

Accoring to this list of Formula 3 racers:

https://www.formel3guide.com/images/logos/azfahrer.pdf

Schröter died on 22 May 1965 in Halle-Saale, just one day prior to race. Did he die in race car crash (practice or qualifying) or died from another causes (maybe traffic accident)?

The following vehicle contacts the stopped vehicle and the wheels and tires are scattered. At this time, there was no contact of the scattered tire wheels with the following vehicle, but there was a similar accident with the FJ-1600 in the 1990s in almost the same place, and at that time, it contacted the head of the following vehicle driver, resulting in a fatal accident.

1990s accident maybe actually Hitoshi Ogawa's crash (http://motorsportmemorial.org/focus.php?db=ct&n=182), but I will search for more information.

Update: no, it seems that it's different accident; Ogawa crashed at start/finish straight and FJ-1600 crash happened at 130R corner.

Two almost unnoticed fatalities happened during 1970 London Mexico World Cup:

According to some British newspapers (Coventry Evening Telegraph, Aberdeen Evening Express, Reading Evening Post, issues of 25 May 1970), passenger or co-driver called Daphne Strange was killed on 24 May when rally car fell into ravine in Peru.
A British girl, identified only as Daphne Strange, who had been living in Chaclacayo, near Lima, when a rally car in which she was passenger plunged 200 ft. into a canyon.
According to text "Spring marathon" by Denis Orlov and Aleksandr Pikulenko published by Autoreview magazine №12 2010, during last stage of rally, member of Brazilian team known by surname Zeitnemer or Ceitnemer died when his car fell into water and he drowned.
Last stage of marathon was marred by bizarre death of one of members of Brazilian team, Zeitnemer. In his car, he fell from berth and drowned in harbour. Who is he, who he was in team? If not report in German Spiegel, nobody will remember him today.
According to E-WRC results, there were no Peruvian or Brazilian crews during rally: https://www.ewrc-results.com/entries/15 ... ally-1970/

However, I doubt nationalities of these crews:
#19 - J.M. (or J.H.) Perez Vega/G. Hinojosa/ J.A. Bercena
#33 - Carlos Zicavo/Alcido Specas (or Specos)/ Antonio Verna

So I need to do more research. I'll post this information in case if someone can also find something about Strange and Zeitnemer.

Fyi: The German word "Zeitnehmer" translates to "timekeeper". Probably where the name has its origins.

Shurely shome mishtake?

"Zeitnehmer" is the German word for an official taking times during a sporting event. If the original source was a German magazine, somebody not very familiar with the language must have made a mistake in translation!!

I will not comment on the Strange name. :wink:

Thank you both. So, it means that Brazilian official drowned when he drove his car into harbour.

As with Mrs. Strange, I think that her name is alias. IIRC, there was fatal accident with rally car after ending of rally in South America in 1970s with British female co-driver; however I don't remember that co-driver had "strange" surname.

Also, according to The Guardian of 1 May 1970, radio techinician who worked for World Cup rally organizer was killed in Buenos Aires when his car overturned as he was going to install a radio unit in Andes mountains.
