What works

Basically everything important worked: Single-player, Time Trial, championship, custom tracks, cars etc.

What does not

GOG.com's hack to emulate a CD doesn't work over WINE. Instead, Re-Volt will play the *.mp3 files supplied with the game which works fine too.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Multi-player, though it should work if you just follow the guidelines.

Additional Comments

I personally recommend installing the latest 1.2 alpha patch on top since you have no benefits of the minor modification GOG made anyway - and the minor modification is, to my knowledge, only the added CD emulation (and you can easily emulate that using for example cdemu and a Re-Volt image).

HowTo / Notes

Re-Volt Multi-player with Wine

Playing Re-Volt in Multi-player online and/or over LAN with Wine only requires native Directplay libraries from Winetricks. This guide will cover enabling these libraries. For further information on installing Winetricks, see: 
http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
and/or
http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectPlayGames

This guide also covers installing RV House, the most popular meeting spot/lobby for Re-Volt online players. Users interested in LAN multi-player only may as well skip the "Installing RV House" section.

*** Enabling the Directplay Libraries in Winetricks ***
- Assuming that you already have winetricks installed, open the terminal.
- type 'winetricks directplay'.
- Winetricks should be downloading and installing the required directplay libaries now.
- When finished, type 'winecfg'. This will open the Wine configuration dialog.
- Go to the Libraries tab. The following overrides should now exist:
*dplayx (native)
*dpnet (native)
*dpnhpast (native)
*dpwsockx (native)

If installation was successful you should be able to start Re-Volt -> go to Start Race -> Multi-player -> Start Game and get to the next menu without any error. If you do, make sure that the Network settings are correctly to TCP/IP.

*** Installing RV House ***
RV House is a meeting spot where all Re-Volt online games are held. It works in a similar fashion to MSN Zone and Gamespy Arcade but is created for Re-Volt only. I highly encourage any Re-Volt fan to install this application if he/she wish to meet the online community.

- Download the latest version of RV House FOR WINDOWS (The Linux release is outdated and incompatible with Re-Volt over Wine).
- Run the installer (rv_house_setup.exe) and go through the wizard.
- With default settings RV House should now be installed in .wine\drive_c\Program Files\RV House\ under the name rv_house.exe.
- You need to register an account at Re-Volt Zone in order to use RV House. It is possible to register straight from RV House and the registration will only require an e-mail adress.

Once you have logged in you are ready to chat and play.

NOTE: Re-Volt requires the ports 47624 (TCP) and 2300-2400 (TCP & UDP) to be open in order to play over the internet. Make sure that your router and firewall are configured properly!

NOTE: Other players likely use the latest version of Re-Volt 1.2 as it fixes a lot of issues in Multi-player games. Some rooms will not be compatible with older versions of Re-Volt.

Tested with Wine 1.3.36 - 1.5.28 (only TCP/IP Multi-player & Multi-player through RV House 0.93.4).
