DiRT Rally

DiRT Rally

DiRT Rally is a racing video game focused on rallying. Players compete in timed stage events on tarmac and off-road terrain in varying weather conditions. On release, the game featured 17 cars and 36 stages from three real world locations - Monte Carlo, Powys and Argolis - and asynchronous multiplayer. Stages range from 4 to 16 km. Subsequent updates added three more locations in the form of Baumholder, Jämsä and Värmland, as well as rallycross and player versus player multiplayer modes. Codemasters announced a partnership with the FIA World Rallycross Championship in July 2015, leading to the inclusion of the Lydden Hill Race Circuit (England), Lånkebanen (Norway), and Höljesbanan (Sweden) to the game.

Dirt Rally features a large number of vehicles in a wide variety of classes, and 16 manufacturers. It contains cars from the 1960s, 70's, 80's, Group B, Group A, Group R, 2000s and 2010s modern rally, Rallycross and Pikes Peak, with cars having up to 10 liveries.

Broken

It's available for a free trial this weekend on Steam.
Sadly though, it's broken.
This is probably because I'm using an AMD graphics card. The configuration information indicates that AMD cards require MESA 13.0.03, and be R9 270 or better.
I'm using an RX 460 with the standard open graphics shipped with Ubuntu 16.04.02.

I got a screen warning that my graphics card wasn't officially supported and that I could encounter problems when I went to run the game.
It never opened! Oh, well, just as well I found out without paying anything.

Additional info:
Intel Pentium 4560 (Kaby Lake, 3.5 GHz, 2 cores 4 threads)
