Yeah, hitting the rev limiter like that is either going to be from wheel spin or a botched down shift. I watched it again more closely. The fact that you don't really see the black car make any ground on the silver car before he loses control makes it look like a botched down shift. If he had been mashing it he would have gapped the silver car a little bit before losing control.
