Michel Terpins is all set to take part in the coming 25 edition of the Sertoes Rally Championship. Terpins has come a long way to be a proud race of the T-Rex prototype cars. Having participated in over 8 Sertoes championships, this one becomes his 9th in which he hopes he wins.
The road to become a successful Brazilian off-road rally driver has not been without curves and turns. Michel remembers vividly how his T-Rex failed to hold in the third edition of the 22nd Sertoes Rally. He cleared all stages perfectly before his car overturned on the last stretch to the finish line. He and his co-driver never got hurt but his car was totaled.
Michel Terpins restored his glory when he participated in the 24 edition of Sertoes Rally Championships. The first two stages went smoothly but the third stage was where more skill had to be put. Terpin’s T-Rex ha to face plenty of eroded spots, a couple of winding roads, and unnerving depressions all in the wilderness. Not forgetting that each stage, usually a 155km stretch, is timed and every driver wants to set a new record. Michel Terpins finished strong and managed to clutch the 5th position in the championships.
Now the 25th Sertoes rally is drawing close and Michel Terpins is more than determined to be in it. Sertoes Rally organizers promise that this championship will be the hardest ever. The drivers will be crossing several towns in four different cities in a 3,300km stretch. Michel Terpins and his co-driver will have to maneuver through the cities of Goianesia, Aruana, Santa Therezinha de Goias, and Goiania in Goias. In Mato Grosso do Sul, the duo will drive through Coxim, Bonito, and Aquiduauana. The last town to pass through will be Barra do Garcas which is in Mato Gross.
Michel Terpins will be racing for his home team, Bull Sertoes Rally, in which his brother, Rodrigo Terpins, is also a part of. He will be in his usual T-Rex prototype designed by MEM. Michel’s T-Rex always gets honorable mentioned as it is listed as a carbon free racing car.
