The source packages haven't, no, but the binaries are now produced by
the "torcs" source package.  As the package maintainer, I'd expect that
you'd know this.  :-)

$ dak ls -s testing torcs-data-{cars,tracks}
torcs-data-cars |    1.3.3-4 |       testing | all
torcs-data-tracks |    1.3.3-4 |       testing | all
