Barbosa is undertaking his first season of conventional rallying, but has plenty of motorsport experience. Starting in karting and Formula Ford, he has spent most of his career since in cross-country rallying, claiming multiple Portuguese titles and starting the Dakar Rally three times, finishing 12th in 2010. He then paired fellow rally driver José Pedro Fontes in circuit racing, taking second in Portuguese GT in 2012 and the 2014 Sports Prototype title. In 2016 he’s driving a ŠKODA Fabia R5 in the Portuguese Rally Championship alongside Miguel Ramalho, who took Fontes to the 2015 title and Armindo Araújo to two production world titles.
