    I have the same issue...

    Sometimes the game will start after about 3 minutes; other times, i can hear the game music, but not see anything.

    To fix, i have to ctl+alt+del, kill the process and relaunch the program. I may have to do this 2 or 3 times before the game actually launches.

    Try Right/click on the EXE (PCARS or PCARS64) and go properties, set compatibility mode to Windows 7 and enable run it as an Admin and give it a go.

    Also, as said before in other threads. Be sure not to have ANY background programs running such as MSI AfterBurner, Logitech profiler, GeForce Experience. ETC
