Michel Terpins’s passion for car racing began when he started racing using motorcycles in 2002. When Michel advanced to racing cars, he was given the chance to race using a car called T-Rex. It is a unique customized car for racing that has a V8 engine that makes uneven terrains and roads more manageable. Aside from that the T-Rex also delivers an extra surge of force to help the car travel in high speed during rallies.
Having won a lot of rally race, Michel Terpins is popular in Brazil. He and his brother formed a duo in 2015, and so far they have won in numerous rally racing categories. Michel and his brother’s flair and love for racing comes from the family gene who are also very enthusiastic about the sports ever since.
The T-Rex that the Terpins brothers use for racing releases carbon dioxide due to the fuel it utilizes. However, the Green Initiative installed a carbon free seal to control the carbon dioxide emitted by the car. Green Initiative is a project that undertakes tree planting programs to help in the maintenance of the forest environment along the Atlantic. The T-Rex car that the brothers used to achieve first place in the Duos Brazilian Championship and Mitsubishi Rally Challenge was designed and created by MEM Motorsport.
Michel and his brother participated in the 22nd Sertoes Rally where they won the seventh place in the competition in the Division for Prototypes IT. Both commented that they had a hard time during the race because they did not anticipate rough terrains on the road. After the cited event, the brothers joined again in the 24th Sertoes Rally where they finished in the fifth place – a better result compared to their previous game. The duo has participated in many more racing competitions where they won, and that made their names famous in Brazil’s car rally sector.
The duo plans to join the 25th Sertoes Rally where their driving skills will be put to the test once again. The rally is considered as the longest in Brazil’s off-road competitions that covers a distance of three thousand kilometers.
