Is this what you want? You will have to adjust the indices appropriately:
> x<-c(2,0,0,2,2,2)
> i <- seq_along(x)
> x[i]
[1] 2 0 0 2 2 2
> # to "loop around", change how you index
> x[(i - 1) %% length(x) + 1]
[1] 2 0 0 2 2 2
> i <- i + 1
> x[(i - 1) %% length(x) + 1]
[1] 0 0 2 2 2 2
> i <- i + 1
> x[(i - 1) %% length(x) + 1]
[1] 0 2 2 2 2 0
> i <- i + 1
> x[(i - 1) %% length(x) + 1]
[1] 2 2 2 2 0 0
