Lewis Hamilton was charged under an anti-hoon law for doing a burnout in his road car when he left the track after the Australian Grand Prix qualifying session. Hoon?

Trust those Aussies to come up with words the rest of us have never heard before. I thought it might be a contraction of Hooligan since Australians have a penchant for shortened words, but Wikipedia doesn't mention this possibility. Google wasn't any help either.

If you are going to invent new words, at least have the foresight to record their etymology. Especially if you are going to charge well known race car drivers under a law named after your invented words. I mean, really. ^_^
