As the Gaming on Linux resident Sim Racer........ The only game from the Sim Racing Bundle that I dont own is Drift21....... I will admit I have only played one of them on Linux....... The others I played on Windows some of them even for thousands of hours according to Steam back before my switch top Linux...... I was also using a Logitech G27 wheel.......

Automobilista 2 ....... It seems to be getting better...... But damn was I disappointed by this on release........ Lots of content and stuff not seen in any other sim....... Great value on sale.......

Assetto Corsa Competizione....... If you love boring GT3 cars..... This is the game for you........ If you dont like GT3 cars then avoid....... The force feedback is very poor in this sim...... And only have GT3/GT4 cars.......

Automobilista....... Built on the original rFactor engine...... A really good game and pushes that engine to the limits...... Just like the sequel has a ton of content not seen in any other sim at the time......

Assetto Corsa....... Base content is lacking to say the least....... Mods are where this game excels....... Drives really well and has great force feedback though the wheel..... But you will want to mod the crap out of the game to best out of it.......

rFactor 2...... Probably the best force feedback on this list....... Feels amazing to drive....... But is very much lacking base content and just like Assetto Corsa requires a ton of mods to get the best out of the game...... Also rFactor 2 is now owned by MotorSport Games..........

NASCAR Heat 5....... I have played this one on Linux and it runs great........ Motorsport Games screwed this game though with the release of the Next-Gen Cars DLC..... Which broke all the other DLC....... They "Fixed" it....... BUT BUYER BEWARE......... According to the Steam discussions........ Two of the DLC in the "Ultimate Version" STILL DONT WORK....... As they report that the "Jimmie Johnson Pack" and the "Playoff Pack" STILL are not working....... I cannot confirm this as I rolled back to an old version of the game to get all the the DLC working before the "Fix" happened....... And I have no plans to update to the newest version...... But I fell like this should be mentioned.......


NOT IN THE SALE
While not in the sale..... I will say that WRC 10 runs great on Linux....... As long as you change from DX12 to DX11 in the WRC 10 options menu....... Well worth grabbing during a sale if you are interested in WRC......
