PPRacer is a fork of TuxRacer due to licensing issues.

It used to be a GPLed program but the developers later on changed the licence. I think you have to pay for the current releases but most distros ship with PPRacer or the old version of supertux so this is not a problem.

Plus Tux Racer got unsupported and PPRacer has a few additions, based on the OpenSource version of Tux Racer.
