The form book was turned upside down in round 12 of Spedeworth’s Winter Banger League at Wimbledon stadium.

With more than 30 cars in each race, the action on track was extremely lively, which is exactly how Mitcham’s Colin Jones likes it.

Just after Christmas, Jones, who has been driving in the 2l stock car formula for some time, switched his attentions to the domestic bangers.

A former national banger driver, Jones has taken to the domestic scene like a duck to water.

Using his vast experience, in the two meetings he has now raced, he has often shown the younger drivers how it should be done.

Making his debut at the New Year’s Day meeting, Jones who, is known for the brightly coloured livery of his cars, won the first heat and then the night’s final.

Back out in round 12 for his second outing, against much bigger fields, Jones again won a heat, and crossed the line for an incredible second place in the final.

Returning to Wimbledon after a few weeks away, Rob Haines showed his class by taking the other heat win and the final win just ahead of Jones.

It appears after our recent feature on Steve Penfold, that he has decided that he currently prefers racing to wrecking as he ended the evening with two top three finishes.

Meanwhile, the race for the title has become a two-horse race, between Leatherhead racer Reece Priestly and Brighton’s Rob Barnes.

Barnes will be desperate to get a good haul of points this week, as he has gone from points league leader, to now lagging behind Priestly.

The 2l hot rods are back at Plough Lane for their first taste of action since New Year’s Day, as they battle for their London Championship.

On that occasion, Mark Paffey won the Winternationals title as well as an earlier heat. Can anyone stop the Hampshire driver taking the title?

Completing the night’s entertainment are the historic stock cars. As a formula they are definitely one of the most improving classes here at Wimbledon, with a whole host of new blood coming into these nostalgic cars.

One of the debutants is Keith Painter, who won the banger world final in 2004. His appearance in the formula is sure to shake things up a little.

Racing starts at 5.30pm with turnstiles open at 4.30pm.
