Looks like a patch was released today for R3E/DTM.

Here is a link to the change log. I also quoted them below.


Updated localization with various corrections and fixes.
Added a new track and a special livery for a competition launching soon. Check insider.simbin.com for more information on upcoming events.

Fixed an issue where the cars could lose their position when driving on the track section marked as pit entrance.
Optimized the short term black screen that was appearing after loading into a session.
Fixed various issues with network file paths for user data.
Improved memory usage in game for 32-bit Windows systems.
Added an option to toggle ON/OFF the overlays. (E.g. DTM Experience in game hud overlays).
Fixed an issue where Automatic gearbox could sometimes not go into reverse from first gear at very low speeds.
DTM Data Display: Tweaked the threshold for when gearbox damage indicator lights up.
DTM Data Display: Fixed an issue where Aerodynamics damage indicator was lighting up when Mechanical Damage was set to OFF.
Repositioned some of the DTM overlays.

Fixed the color on Lap by Lap split times.
Fixed an issue where the overlay for the track name and upcoming session wasn't cut out correctly.
Changed the order in Media hub. Media hub now sorts the list from newest to oldest.
Fixed an issue where on certain systems the game was not recognizing the correct resolution and aspect ratio on windowed modes. Because of this, the mouse cursor was not highlighting menu buttons when hovering over them.
Fixed an issue where special characters still weren't appearing correctly in in-game position bar.
Fixed an issue where key repeat was not working properly on some buttons on steering wheels, causing flickering when changing driving view.
Fixed an issue where the game was not reading the car setup values correctly after restarting in a Leaderboard Challenge.
Fixed an issue with AI driver name tags were appearing mispositioned on triple screen mode.
Fixed an issue where automatic shift sometimes wasn't downshifting.
Fixed an issue where the eliminated AI would start driving if player had started Instant Replay while in Qualifying.
Fixed an issue where position bar settings would not get remembered correctly after starting a new session.
Fixed an issue where certain underclocked/overclocked systems with faster/slower system timers, would get Invalid Lap despite not cutting the track.

Fixed a rare crash that could occur when switching focus out of the game by ALT+TAB, right after game was started.
Fixed a rare crash that could occur when exiting the game.
Fixed an issue with broken pause menu when disqualified.
Optimized data calls and on DTM overlays. This will reduce stuttering some users get when overlays appear.

Fixed and issue with LOD priorities for shadows.
Tweaked shadow maps for medium and high settings to remove flickering.
The particle quality setting now affects the particle resolution. This will reduce halos and flickering from particles on high settings.

Disabled shadows in rearview mirrors.
Added Rearview Mirror Quality setting to Graphics options.
Added Shader Quality setting to Graphics options.

Adaptive AI: Added default AI difficulty values for each difficulty. If there is no previous AI data on a track, the default values will be used which differs based on difficulty now.
Fixed an issue with Adaptive AI where an interpolation issue could occur if the average performance difference between two AI were too small.
Fixed an issue where AI would return to pits on the lap before the last lap, if the player wins the race with overlap.
