Former MotoGP star Alex Barros returned to racing action, and the top step of the podium, during the Brazilian Superbike season finale in Sao Paulo.

Barros raced in grand prix from 1986 to 2007, claiming seven victories in the premier 500cc/MotoGP class.

Now 46-years-old, Barros runs his own BMW team in the BRSBK series - but decided to join his rider Diego Pierluigi on track for the Interlagos round.
