You can simply "Provides: supertuxkart = %{version}-%{release}".

This would definitely be best. Don't forget to obsolete the last known
version of tuxkart which seems to be 0.4.0-5.fc6 with :

Obsoletes: tuxkart < 0.4.0-6

(release is higher, that way you "catch" any dist tag)

Now the real question is : Do you need to go through the new package
submission process? I'm afraid the easiest would be to do so...

Don't forget to "retire" tuxkart properly (dead.package file etc.).
