Michel Terpins is inspiring his fellow Brazilians with his impressive rally driving career. His passion for speed was developed at an early age. He comes from an athletic family in Sao Paulo that loves sports. His father, Jack Terpins, had a successful basketball career which drove Michel towards being a professional athlete. In 2002 Michel was racing motorcycles when he decided to switch to automobiles. His driving skills have improved impressively since that time and he never went back to motorcycle racing. Over time he has won various stages in different races positioning him in the Brazilian Championship. He has carefully supervised the creation of his own car, T-Rex, to compete in the world of rally racing. It is powered by a V-8 engine and is built tough to withstand difficult conditions and challenging terrain. MEM motorsport created the car and Michel has raced it in the Mitsubishi Cup and the Brazilian Cross-Country Rally Championship.
His rally team is called the Bull Sertoes Rally Team and is one of the best rally teams in the country. He ambitiously started his own competition called the Sertoes Rally hosted by his team. Drivers from all over the world come to drive in the race and celebrate the sport. It is one of the longest rally races covering around 3,300 km of road.
