    For those experience the dxgmms2.sys blue screen on Windows 10 with NVidia graphics. This might be the solution.

    First of all make sure you install directx 9 from the Microsoft website (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=8109). Default it is not present in win10.
    Then uninstall all NVidia **** and reboot.

    Install an old win8.1 driver found here: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/83080/en-us

    Default Win10 will update drivers if it finds newer versions. Make sure you disable this annoying feature (Right Mouse on Start/Control Panel/System/Advanced System settings. Then click the hardware tab and open the Device Installation Settings. Set it to No and Save Changes.
    Reboot after you finish installing the NVidia driver and fire up rF2 again :)

    Happy racing.
