When the Terpins name is mentioned in Brazil it is associated with success this is because it is one of the most prolific and successful sporting families in Brazil with two brothers and a father representing the country in various sporting events and being very good at it.It began with Jack Terpins he was a very well known basketball who played between the 60’s and 70’s as a professional basketball er at the highest club and national levels. He would then be elected by the president to head sports in Brazil after retiring from active sports.
His sons would from a very tender age be so fascinated with their father’s success in sports that they decided to join it when they came of age and to this end, Michel Terpins and his brother Rodrigo Terpins went into rallying. They both are very talented and have been able to achieve a lot in the sport.Michel Terpins was the winner of the second stage of the 24th edition of the Sertões Rally he was with his teammate Maykel Justo who he was collaborating with for the first time despite him being a member of the Bull Sertões Rally Team a team that is best known for its prowess in the T1 prototypes category.The team was founded by Michel Terpins and his brother who at the time did not participate in that edition of the rally but promised to be back in the following edition.
In this edition they drove the T-Rex, a special rallying vehicle designed for the team by a group of experts referred to as the MEM team, this was Michel Terpin’s seventh participation in the competition.
They were very confident and through a sheer display of skill they were guaranteed a victory in the first two super-challenging stages despite it being Michel Terpins and Justo first run together the had a lot of chemistry and emerged victorious in the second stage. This enabled them to form a lasting bond as they realized that they could complement one another and would in future be able to improve from the fifth position they had achieved overall.For Michel Terpins the sky is the limit as he has promised to keep doing what he enjoys till he retires.
