Michel Terpins: Born to Drive

Like most people on the globe, Brazilians are mad about sports. Revered for their football fanaticism, Brazilians have over the last few decades widened the scope of the sports they support. Among the more followed and watched of the newer sports is motorsport. With a combination of speed, power, and unpredictability, motorsport has developed quite the appeal among the Brazilian public. Among the rally drivers who keep Brazilians consistently entertained and interest in the sport is Michel Terpins. The 40-year-old driver is considered one of the best in the country and currently, commands an 18-point lead in the national cross country rally for the prototype T1 category.

Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Michel Terpins developed a passion for speed at quite an early age. He shared the liking for speed and racing with his elder brother, Rodrigo Terpens. Michel’s father, Jack Terpins, a former basketball player, encouraged his sons to excel in sports just as much as they did in their academics. The two brothers took advantage and tried out motorsport when the chance presented itself. After amassing a little skill and aged only 23, in 2002 Michel Terpins made his debut in a professional rally while competing in the motorcycle category. While he has since shifted to racing in cars, he has gone on to develop more than a decade-long career in the sport.

Despite his age, Michel Terpins seems like he is just entering the successful years of his racing career. He was the winner of the prototype T1 category in the recently concluded 25th edition of the Sertoes Rally. Being his tenth time taking part in the rally, this first win was a significant feat for Michel Terpins and his co-driver, Maykel Justo. The two used a T-Rex created by MEM Motorsport to complete the 3,300km rally. The top finish surprised many as Justo and Michel had barely been working together for two years. That said, Justo’s experience is undeniable having taken part in close to a dozen Sertoes Rally editions, with seven of those participations being as a co-driver in the trucks category.
