The Australian Formula 3 Championship is a great talent scout for Australian Motorsport and Ricky Capo is the new hot shoe taking his debut race win at Sandown at round 1.

In fact he took all three race wins in his new-for-2015 Dallara F311, having upgraded his Modena Engineering Dallara from last year.

He debuted in the Championship last year with a F307 Dallara and immediately showed pace that belied the car and his step up to a newer machine showed immediate results.  He had experienced success in karting prior to taking the wheel of the F3 machine.  We talk about the jump from karts to F3 and the jump from an older car to a newer car.

Despite his three race wins at round one, he won’t have it all his own way over the course of the year with Jon Collins with the Gilmour Engineering squad having more than his fair share of bad luck at Sandown.  The duo will undertake a fierce rivalry during the year as the grid expands.

With his success in round 1, he is looking forward to what he says is his favourite track, Phillip Island for round 2.

In this interview we talk about round 1, looking forward to round two and how he has come to grips with his car.
