TWO drag-rac­ing hoons jailed over a Mel­bourne crash that killed a teenager have won a re­duc­tion in the time they have been dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing. Damian Rodi and Jar­rod Rooke spoke to each other at a set of lights be­fore rac­ing down a sub­ur­ban road. A pas­sen­ger in Rooke’s turbo-charged ve­hi­cle was killed. The ap­peal court found the change in the dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion pe­riod recog­nised the men’s good re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion prospects.
