This was a pleasant surprise as the car was easy to maneuver , but I wonder what could be the reason because this has never happened before. Btw the rear tire has little tread left. Is this should be a concern?

PS: I never track the car, and dont do anything crazy on street.
thanks in advance

The answer is in your question

giving a V8 powered car some gas, going around a turn, with little tread left on rear tires. Perhaps couple that with road condition.
