The Jones 102B was an F1RWRS racing car designed and manufactured by the Jones Racing Group and used by the Castrol Jones Racing team for the 2013 F1RWRS season. The car competed in only fourteen races due to Sammy Jones' initial withdrawal following Daniel Prieto's rise to president of the F1RWRS. Despite this, the car still managed two victories. Kay Lon, their second driver, would finish fourth in the Drivers Championship and won on the debut of the car at the 2013 F1RWRS Mexican Grand Prix but did not stay with the team. He was sacked following a sexual harassment charge after the 2013 F1RWRS Chinese Grand Prix. Drama aside, Jones failed to pass Holden for fourth in the Constructors Championship. The "B" specification of the car refers to the updated car that was brought to the team's first race after Jones rapidly designed a new car for the season.

Controversy

Following another podium for Jones Racing at the 2013 F1RWRS Monaco Grand Prix, Barii Mori, owner of Kamaha, accused Jones of copying Kamaha's 2013 car, the Kamaha KM-4L. Mori claimed that Lon, recently sacked by Kamaha, had brought technical secrets to Jones in exchange for a race seat. These claims were never proven and the stewards of the Monaco Grand Prix and the WMSC both cleared Jones of any wrongdoing. However, the negative press caused Nabisco to terminate their contract with Jones Racing one year early. Sammy Jones vociferously denied all charges.
