    Without further context, the meaning is unclear.

    metaphorically.  peel means to accelerate so fast that the tires melt from the heat and some of the rubber peels off.  Do a burn-out; stomp on the gas so hard that the tires can't grab the road because they are spinning faster than they can make the car move.

    It means that you are moving off so fast that you are ''burning'' the tires.

    ''Peeling'' of the suface of the rubber .. but NOT literally though !

    To peel out is to start off so fast that the outer layer is burned off the tires. Not literally peeled, but with a strong smell of burnt rubber.

    I think it (loosely) means pull away from a competitor - race ahead, if you like.
