Sao Paulo born Michel Terpins is known as one of Brazil’s best and most decorated rally drivers. He’s won most of the driving competitions he’s entered throughout his history in the race car driving industry. Along with his brother, Rodrigo, he won the 24th edition of what is called the Sertoes Rally, which is a racing competition he started participating in back in 2002 when he entered the contest in the motorcycle category.
He and his brother are part of a rally team that they, along with a man named Maykel Justo, formed in 2015 called Bull Sertoes. This team is considered to be one of the finest in the Sertoes Rally due to their keen skill, and the fact that they’ve won so many driving competitions. After winning the 2nd stage of the Sertoes Rally, Michel said that it was a difficult and exhausting stage to get through because of the mountainous terrain that was involved. But the powerful V8 engine that the team added to their racer handled the rough terrain adequately.
Michel Terpins took an interest in auto mechanics at a very early age, when he started repairing cars. Coming from a family of sportsmen, he developed an interest in racing and from there went on to enter many driving contests, including the Cross Country Rally, which he won in 2015 as a runner-up. His father, Jack, was a famous basketball player in the 1960s, and part of the 1970s. And his brother, Rodrigo, who is a part of his driving team, is also a skilled and talented driver.
The Sertoes Rally, which attracts many well established race car drivers, as well as enthusiastic fans every year, is one of the Terpins brothers biggest and most challenging driving competitions. Another race they competed in was the 2011 Mitsubishi Cup Championship, which was sponsored by the MEM Motorsport brand, a company that was responsible for developing the brothers’ racing vehicle known as T-Rex.
Michel Terpins’ exceptional driving skills and endurance in the racing world is one of the things that has made him so popular and admired by his fellow Brazilians.
