Got the need for speed? Humble Bundle are doing another of their fancy bundles and this time the focus is on racing games with the Humble Just Drive Bundle.

On the Linux side, in terms of numbers it's not a great turnout. Sadly, we just don't have many of the bigger racers supported. I'll note how each game seems to run on Steam Play Proton too, if you want a simple guide for Steam Play Proton—look here.

If you pay £1 or more you get (none support Linux here):

  • WRC 7 FIA World Rally Championship - Mixed results on Steam Play - See ProtonDB.
  • MXGP - The Official Motocross Videogame - Works on Steam Play.
  • MotoGP15 - Mixed results on Steam Play - See ProtonDB.

However, things get better in the second tier where you need to beat the average payment as it includes:

  • Road Redemption - Linux supported!
  • DiRT 4 - Linux supported!
  • Project CARS (+Limited Edition Upgrade) - Works with Steam Play Proton.

The biggest tier at £10 or more also has no games that support Linux:

  • NASCAR Heat 4 - Works with Steam Play.
  • Project CARS 2 (+Japanese Cars Bonus Pack) - Works with Steam Play.
  • Assetto Corsa (+ some DLC) - Works with Steam Play but needs tinkering - see ProtonDB.

If you're a serious racing game enthusiast, this is a bundle for you. If you don't currently own the two games in it that actually support Linux with Road Redemption and DiRT 4, that's still an awesome deal just for those two. Otherwise, it's a mixed bag with Steam Play Proton as noted.

You can pick up the Humble Just Drive Bundle here if any of that does interest you.

Humble also just launched the Festival of Speed sale, with a ton of other racing games discounted.

From the whole bundle i would only want Road Redemption sooo im gonna pass. Still not a bad bundle.

Grabbed it (middle tier), mainly for DiRT 4, but I might try some of the other titles with Proton.

I bought Wreckfest a few days ago, as some friends are racing every week together.
It runs great via Proton, and i wonder how it compares with Dirt, if it does.

Road Redemption, i bought it several times over the years, refunded each time.
I expected it to grow some depth, but it’s way too arcadish-simplistic to be fun more than a couple of races.
Also full of glitch and weird physics behavior.
Last time i tried it was for testing the DLC with the not-Captain-America shield guy, and again it was fun but too shallow to think about playing more than a few hours.

Some weeks ago, I looked for the "Steam Calculator" from SteamDB (https://steamdb.info/calculator/) and like the site says, I'm disappointed, because there's >100 games that I never opened it.

But I couldn't resist to this bundle, I want to play Road redemption, MotoGP and Dirt4, and I'm curious about WRC.

So I get the second tier.

Oooh, very tempted by Assetto Corsa. But I'm not sure I want to jump through all those hoops to get it running well. I know it's only £10, but I really don't have money to throw away on stuff that just doesn't work. Decisions, decisions... :S:

MXGP has a bug works fine but after you finish a race the audio goes nuts it's all garbage sound. Anyone has a workaround??

Ok with Proton 4.11-13 it seems Ok no weird sounds.

WRC7 doesn't work with Proton 5.0.4 but works with Proton 5.1 GE-1

Just an update here: I don't know what I was worrying about with AC. It takes a bit of tinkering (Proton GE is a must), the stock launcher is a little unstable (and I can't get Content Manager to work at all), but the game itself runs beautifully. Project Cars, although it's rock-solid stable to the extent that it's easy to forget that it isn't native, tends to drop frames with a lot of AI opponents on-screen; I haven't seen that yet in AC.

They should really be calling this bundle the Instant Race Sim Collection. What a bargain.
