The reverse gear is something most of us tend to forget when we're driving our cars. After all, the only time we use the reverse gear is when we're trying to park.
However, the reverse gear came to the rescue of the driver of a BMW Z4 M on the Nurburgring after his car spun out on a turn at the green hell.
To ensure that his car didn't end up as a total wreck, the Z4 M slotted his car into reverse mid-way through the spin forcing the car back onto the track. However, when he noticed the car was still spinning its wheels, he slammed the Z4 M into first and drove away without a scratch on his car.
Talk about a 'reversal' of fate.
