Superstars series 2010 at Portimao race track


The Autodromo Internacional do Algrave will host the official start of N.Technology's Superstars International Series challenge with the Porsche Panamera S racecar on the 22-23 May.

Portuguese driver Joao Barbosa will take the wheel, fresh from his Daytona 24 Hours win with a Porsche-powered car. The 34-year-old racer from Porto will also drive the Panamera S racecar throughout its development tests.

"As a professional driver, I know how important it is to be involved in major projects with a long-term future and I believe that the combination of Porsche and N.Technology is one of them. It will be a great pleasure to contribute to the development of the Porsche Panamera S, working closely with N.Technology staff. We will do everything to be competitive from Portimao, my home race, onwards."
