* Sam Littlewood ([https://www.reddit.com/user/samlittlewood u/samelittlewood]) (sam in the BRender strings). [https://www.reddit.com/r/gamedev/comments/2o2bh2/17_year_old_carmageddon_debugging_symbols_file/cmjni9n Contacted on reddit], he followed up a bit later to say he no longer had any documentation or SDKs.
 
* Dan Piponi ([https://twitter.com/sigfpe @sigfpe]). [https://twitter.com/Foone/status/662067352247242752 Only has the manual, which we already have].
 
* Jez San: Not yet contacted. I have a possible email address to follow up on.
