Hi, if Wreckfest was running in mid 2017, odds are it not your video card. Unless it was borderline already trying run Wreckfest.

Give this thread a read for some possible fixes:  http://steamcommunity.com/app/228380/discussions/0/1483232961038372764/?tscn=1516878360

I think its a directx issue that's arouse with the december patch. Op is using intel HD 3000 as GPU,which doesn't support Dx11,yet ran the game pre december patch.

A few have contacted me about this issue and i assume need some workaround to disable some Dx11 features, that were added in the december patch.

Couple of other old threads relating to other games with same problem:

Ah interesting. Obviously I was expecting HD 3000 working when HD 2500 works. But seems like HD 3000 is only up to DX 10.1 and HD 2500 works on DX11.

One example again that higher number doesn't always mean better or newer :D
