Try "petrol-head". They drive fast cars, illegally, and generally make fools of themselves. They (the hoons) tend to "hoon around" in their cars, leading to general loutish (hoonish) behaviour.

Hope this helps.

From Mark Brandon Read's Chopper:

"None of the people I've killed were innocent, normal or average nine-to-five working types: they were all drug dealers, hoons, pimps, crime figures and killers."

What's a hoon?
