    The real-life vehicle also had automatic transmission.
    That is why it is on by default.

    You can turn it off in the car setup screens

    Pretty sure it was auto upshifts but manual downshifts in the real car.

    They also ran TC then too, so I wouldn't recommend not running it, that is also in car setup and on by default, not the ingame "assists".

    I've found the auto upshift is pretty nice and after they added manual upshift override I tend to use it most of the time with the V10. It only has a downside where you get the car upshifting a second before a braking zone, a situation where you might likely instead let the revs ride beyond the optimal shift point.

    I know that if Reiza wanted to go for a year later than the one they chose they might have been faced with the pre-selected auto-downshift thing which woulda been very interested to play with.
