Barbosa undertook his first full season of rallying in 2016, impressing by finishing third in the Portuguese championship, but has plenty of motorsport experience. Starting in karting and Formula Ford, Barbosa has spent most of his career since in cross-country rallying, claiming multiple national titles and starting the Dakar Rally three times, finishing P12 in 2010. He then paired with fellow rally driver José Pedro Fontes in circuit racing, taking second in Portuguese GT in 2012 and the 2014 Sports Prototype title. Co-driver Miguel Ramalho took Fontes to the national title in 2015 and 2016 and Armindo Araújo to two production world crowns.
