Since it's a universe package, I can take care of it. I can test the 
compilation of the latest of Debian Unstable but I don't have upload 
rights. So I won't be of much help I'm afraid.

Anyway, it fails to build from source (FTBFS):

checking for XF86VidModeSetViewPort in -lXxf86vm... no
configure: error: Can't find libXxf86vm. Please check config.log and if 
you can't solve the problem send the file to 
torcs-users at with the subject "torcs compilation 
make: *** [debian/stamp-makefile-build] Error 1
pbuilder: Failed autobuilding of package

Moreover, the only architecture in common with Hoary is i386. I don't 
konw if architecture-specific packages must be available on all 
supported architecture or if it doesn't care for Universe packages.
Though Debian has a waiting patch to make torcs compile on AMD64...
