Michel Terpins and Rodrigo Terpins are two racing drivers that have become synonymous with captivating crowds at race rallies. The 22nd edition of the Sertoes Rally brings on board several accomplished drivers to showcase their racing finesse. Beginning in July, the race kicks off at Goiania on a 155km track characterized by sharps bends that require refined skills and caution. The Terpins brothers recently completed a trial test in just over 2 hours which subsequently placed them in the 7th position in the Prototypes T1.
However, the duo failed to complete the special trial courtesy of various challenges ranging from an incredibly grueling track to excess dirt on the road. While addressing an audience of pundits and racing executives, Rodrigo Terpins lamented on taking extreme caution despite having the car in top condition. Additionally, he hardly experienced any scars and opted not to force the suspension too much.
Such reasons are widely considered to be plausible justification especially in a situation whereby both the navigator and pilot topped the KM 62 timer and didn’t experience any injuries whatsoever. The highly anticipated race is expected to cover three major states including Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Goias.
Unlike most racing tracks, the Sertoes Rally different off-road trajectories should pose a tricky challenge for the T1 prototype created by MEM Motorsport. However, the car was recently subjected to additional modifications to strengthen its power and competitive nature. According to Michel Terpins, Sertoes is widely considered to be one of the most awaited events of the year. Not only does it attract crowds of loyal fans and personalities from far and wide but it also poses unique challenges that each driver must overcome to establish dominance in the industry.
As a seasoned veteran, Michel Terpins is expected to mark his ten year anniversary in the magnificent track this July. His initial debut garnered immense recognition after showing up in the motorcycle category. With the aid of his brother Rodrigo, Michel made the ultimate switch to competitive car racing when he debuted with the T-rex.
Michel Terpins extraordinary accomplishments wouldn’t have been possible without the immense contribution of his navigator, Maykel, a skilled Taubate driver who helped Terpins win four titles.
