I'm from the SuperTuxKart development team and some people will probably not care/twist what I'm about to say.
However I think it's important to clarify some stuff.

It seems a lot of people criticized without even playing the game.

The character Sara is one of the many playable characters in the game. She isn't the only woman playable. Several others are present.
  * Suzanne (Blender's mascot)
  * Xue (XFCE's mouse)
  * Amanda (A panda and the mascot of windows maker)

May I please ask to clarify how possibly a monkey, a mouse and a bear
can be classified as types of playable woman?

As far as I can see, the only woman there is still that sexualized
Hentai-porn alike character called Sara.

For the beach we will add men in swimming suit. It was planned but unfortunately the guy who worked on it had some delays, so the release was done before it could be finished.

Being a post from yesterday 20:54 you better link the discussion where
those plans have been discussed, and where that delay was reported.

The tone / text above insinuates bad intentions or even flat out
lying from the stk developers. I see no reason for you to insinuate
such things and I believe that you own the stk developers an apology
