In episode 3 of Fifth Stage, near the end of Takumi's race with Satoshi, the left support of the wing on Satoshi's car breaks off the Miata causing the car to spin. Would this be the outcome of an event like this in real life?

If the car produces enough front downforce, then it will spin when the rear wing breaks because of the imbalance of front to rear grip.
On a road car, even like the Miata with a fairly simple bodykit and at touge speeds, I doubt the same scenario would cause such a dramatic spin. You can see this in real life, people remove the rear wings from Evos and WRXs and they drive just fine on motorway speeds.
Initial D tries to ground a lot of things in reality but like with any movie/anime, they tend to exaggerate a bit.
