The musician will participate in the XVII Rally Costa Brava Històric with Team Porsche Barcelona.
On last Thursday 16th, a new edition of the Porsche Classic Series and the XVII Rally Costa Brava Històric was presented at Porsche’s official car dealership, Centro Porsche Barcelona.
During the presentation, Centro Porsche Barcelona’s Managing Director, José Velasco, surprised the attendees announcing that Álvaro Soler, Catalan singer and composer of international recognition, will participate as an official driver for Team Porsche Barcelona in the seventeenth edition of the Rally Costa Brava Històric.
The singer, a huge fan of Porsche classic cars, will prepare his 911 SC 3.0 from 1983 at Centro Porsche Barcelona’s department for classic cars: Porsche Classic Partner. Soler claimed to feel “very excited with the opportunity to participate in such a historic rally and with a friend as a co-driver”. In terms of objectives he sets for the rally, Soler says that “the goal is to finish the race, since it’s a consistency rally, different from the rest. It is the first time that I participate in this kind of rally in Spain, so I am looking forward to see how my co-driver and I deal with it. It will be great!“.
Álvaro Tauchert Soler, known professionally as Álvaro Soler, rose to worldwide fame merely 5 years ago with his first single, El mismo sol. A version of the song, featuring Jennifer Lopez, reached the top positions of musical charts in more than 25 countries. A year later, he released Sofía, which became a massive hit with more than 600M views on YouTube. The following singles he has released since then, such as La cintura, have also been successful.
