Michel Terpins is a celebrated speed racer who, along with his driving team, competes in the Brazilian off-road competition known as the Sertoes Rally. Growing up in the city of Sao Paulo as the son of a professional basketball player who was popular in the 1960s and 1970s, he developed a big interest in sports at a young age, and later became passionate about auto mechanics and racing. After he learned a great deal about how cars function, he became skilled at repairing them, then he began training for speed contests.
Along with his team, the Bull Sertoes, he has won several awards in the Sertoes Rally, and is known as being one of his country’s most decorated drivers. His team members include his brother Rodrigo and two other partners, and they are all considered to be the best in the annual competition. Michel Terpins started his participation in the rally in 2002 when he entered its motorcycle contest. Later, in 2015, he was in the Cross Country Rally, where he finished in 2nd place. It was also in 2015 when he and his brother formed the Bull Sertoes team.
Due to the exceptional driving skills of Michel Terpins and his other driving partners, the Bull Sertoes team became the champions of the 2nd stage of the Sertoes Rally’s 24th edition. Michel described this stage of the 7-stage multi-state competition as being very difficult and exhausting to finish, but thanks to their MEM Motorsport designed vehicle called T-Rex, the team was able to persevere and make it through all the rough terrain of the race. T-Rex was built with an added V8 engine, which was very helpful when it came to driving over the rocky and mountainous roads involved with the event.
