10-4 special case : the spinout
– When a driver crosses out his last tire point (PdV), his car spins out. The car stays where it is, but it is turned around to face the opposite direction. The shifter also stays in the current gear. At the end of the round of play, the driver will turn the car in the right direction again, and the shifter will be placed in 1st gear for his next move.
– No one can slipstream a spun out car.
– A spun out car must roll for engine tests if its current gear is 5 or 6
