The Brazilian Rallying industry has produced many superstars in the past few years, and Michel Terpins is one of the most famous names in the game. Michel was born close to four decades ago and has made himself a name as a member of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. He has been a regular participant in the Sertoes Rally, having participated in the competition more times that his elder brother, Rodrigo Terpins.

Records indicate that Michel Terpins has competed in the last nine editions of the Sertoes Rally, four times more than his elder brother. Having grown up in a sporting family, it was quite natural that Michel would perform well in the sporting world. Michel formed the Bull Sertoes Rally Team together with Rodrigo as they are very passionate about speed and off-road driving. Also, the two brothers have made major appearances in the last four editions of the Brazilian Cross Country Rally Championship.

Michel is expected to participate in this year’s Sertoes Rally to mark his 10th participation in this particular competition. As usual, Michel will race in the T-Rex, which has been his car of choice when it comes to racing. Michel’s journey in rallying has been kind of interesting because he began in the motorcycle category when he made his debut in 2002.

He then joined the cars category as a sailor for his brother Rodrigo Terpins. Michel has been working hard in the four years to improve his piloting skills with T-Rex. It is always important for a rally driver to have a skilled and experienced navigator to succeed. Maykel Justo has been his reliable navigator in the last four years and is the reason why Michel has experienced significant evolution in his piloting.

By providing him with the much-needed safety, Justo has made it possible for him to make significant improvements when it comes to turning. Apart from participating the Sertoes Rally for over ten times, Michel’s navigator has four titles. The Brazilian Cross Country Rally Championship is one of the most competitive rallies in the country, and Michel is the current leader in prototype T1.
