Joerg Henrichs (aka hiker): Project Leader

I am the current project leader of SuperTuxKart. I discovered TuxKart around 2006 after installing Suse Linux a while ago. After some search, a 'Game of the Month' team was working on improving the game, however the project was grounded due to performances issues. I picked the project and started to work on it.

Marianne Gagnon (aka Auria): Main Developer

I joined the SuperTuxKart team a few years ago, originally to help with the graphics. I quickly started doing programming on the game's core, especially the GUI and the various blender plugins. My little experience in blender allows me to sometime help with artwork and track making.

Jean-Manuel Clemençon (aka samuncle): Lead Artist

I'm the lead artist of SuperTuxKart. When I installed for the first time Linux in 2009, while searching for games available on Linux, one of the most popular game was SuperTuxKart. I started to mod maps for fun and eventually I made my first map, Hacienda. After more than 5 years working for SuperTuxKart, I created some of the most complex and challenging tracks like Cocoa Temple or Antediluvian Abyss. My last project was to create a stadium to showcase your new battle mode and designing our new website.
