Try to Start pCars in Windowed Mode. (you can change this in the Game Options)

How have you got your screens setup?
One is Primary and the other extended?
Have you tried Alt-Tab back to the game when it goes black?

I have similar issues but it also locks up other programs in use for monitoring temps like EVGA Precision X OC and NZXT CAM software that was on secondary screens.

Edit:
Did some reading and tried a couple of things that has seemed to work. I saved my theme for wallpapers and that stopped that from blacking out. I also tried the fix of going into "Documents>Project CARS and renamed graphicsconfigdx11.xml to graphicsconfig.xml I see it has created a new file in there with the original naming convention.

Yeah graphicsconfig.xml is for the 32bit version.
Also I forgot about the saving theme bug.
