    If you have renamed or deleted your Userdata folder you should verify the game files before starting the game.
    You have to right click rFactor 2 in your Steam Library, the select Properties / Local Files.
    Then select Verify Integrity of Game Files and let it do it's check and it will download files if needed.
    Then you can start rF2.

    It was my previous update experience:
    I was using new UI, and there were contents / Core update about 2 weeks ago. rF2 exited consistently after the white screen. I renamed player.json, config.ini, checking steam files integrity. All did not work.

    Finally I switched back to old UI and launched rF2, it updated the contents. I then switched to new UI and it launched successfully. Please try if it applies to your case.

    This is a good idea for anyone having trouble starting the game, opt out of all betas. ;)
