(Portuguese - Born : 16 January 1966)
Made his debut in the 1989 UMM Trophy of Portalegre. From 1990 to 1992 he continued to compete in the same series and, starting in 1990 with a third place, he went one better every year until he won the championship in 1992. He was contracted by Nissan in 1993, and then signed for Mitsubishi in 1994. Since then, he has been a member of the Portuguese Dealer Team. His records in the domestic and international events he has competed in are exceptional. 1995 and 1996 saw him competing in the domestic Portuguese championship and posting many victories in a T1 Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero. He then came third in T1 (Production Car) in the 1996 Paris-Dakar. The following year, he won the category and finished 10th overall in the Dakar, a result that made him the most successful Portuguese driver in the history of the Paris-Dakar. In 1998 he drove a different machine, a T3 (Prototype) Mitsubishi L200/Strakar that he brought to 2nd place in T3 in the Portuguese national championship. In 1999, not only did he score many wins in the domestic Portuguese series, but he also defeated Jean-Louis Schlesser in the Baja Portugal and thus recorded his first World Cup victory in his home event! Like fellow Mitsubishi drivers Shinozuka and Prieto, Sousa is making a come-back on the Dakar after the huge accident all three suffered at the same place last year in Egypt. But like the others, he has fully recovered and wishes to overcome past misfortune in 2001.
