Give this man four wheels and an Engine and he will be nowhere in sight. Michel Terpins has literally proven his track record as a rally driver. Not everyone is built for this kind of sport.

At 40 years old his achievements are numerous. He has made a good reputation for himself in the rally competitions. Back in 2002, Michel started out as a motorcyclist. He then moved to change on to become a rally driver, and a valued member of the Sertoes rally team. Michel is now set to celebrate his 10th anniversary as a participator in the team.

Michael along with his brother Rodrigos have been involved in a number of rally competitions among them the Mitsubishi cup, Sertoes rally, and the Brazilian cross- country.

Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Mr. Michel hails from a family of sports. His dad Jack Terpins made a good name for himself as a basket baller, his brother Rodrigo Terpins following suit as a rally driver. Michel has exuded incredible ethic, confidence, and hard work to see him emerge among the top in all his competitions.

He emerged top five in the 25th sertoes rally event alongside his navigator Maykel Justo winning in two of the three race categories. Mechanical problems came up in the third 306 Km phase and the two were forced to slow down. Otherwise Michel would have scooped all three victories. He however gave credit to his navigator praising him for his focus saying that he has perfected his driving over time, and that he feels safe with him.

Michel Terpins’ quest for the adrenalin rush has helped steer him to rank among the very best in off-road rally championships. With the help of the T-Rex, a superb car from MEM Motorsport, he has won the pride of many Brazilians.
