THE MAN BEHIND THE WHEEL

THE MAN

A fan of motorsports, Paulo Pinheiro, Mechanical Engineer, envisioned the creation of a racetrack in its home city, Portimão.
At 2008 he saw his project come to life, with the opening of Autódromo Internacional do Algarve at November, 2nd – the first part of the Algarve Motor Park global project, that began in 2001.

During 2004 he created and became the Director of the Parkalgar Racing Team, that race in the World Motorbike Championship, with the twofold goal of competing and promoting the racetrack worldwide – the team was a partnership with Honda and terminated during 2011, after having won 12 races and 2 vice world championship titles.
