stunt01 StuntRally is a great driving game available on Linux and Windows, the game is released under the GNU GPL license v3 .

The game features 54 tracks in 8 sceneries, 7 cars and a Track Editor.
It focuses on closed rally tracks with possible stunt elements (jumps, loops, pipes).
The game and editor both run on Windows and Linux. The Windows installer has all tracks included.



System requirements:

CPU: 2 cores or more
GPU: GeForce 9600 GT or Radeon HD 3870 (256 MB or more)
It is possible to run with older specifications.

Software

Car simulation is done by VDrift a great open source game by itself.

The game

As in most racing games the goal of the game is the “classic one” , we have to get in the first positions to go to the next level and unlock new cars. The graphic is great and there are several available point of views (external from a side, the driver’s point of view, from behind, from above, etc.).

If all the tracks that come with the game are not enough, in the game is also available  a track editor that allow to create your own tracks.

There is a two-part text-commented video tutorial for making new tracks on youtube [p1 | p2].
