Car rallying requires speed and agility; these are two qualities that most rally drivers who have dominated the scene over the years seem to incline to when approached. According to Michel Terpin, this seems not the case, since he confides in his fans that dedication and discipline remain the ultimate factors that have been guiding his career. Ever since he started out as a rally driver, he has won almost all the races he has participated in and seemingly he has never let age catch up with his expertise.
Michel Terpin comes from a sporty family with his father a retired professional basketball player and his older brother, Rodrigo Terpin, a professional rally driver in Brazil. After a strong conviction from his elder brother, he safely transitioned from an amateur driver into a full-time professional driver. He worked alongside his brother assisting as a navigator from 2002 to 2008, during this period they formed part of the Bull Sertoes team where they competed in the T1 category. Their partnership was one of the most fruitful ones bearing in mind that Michel was still a learner and required more attention. Even as he was learning, he was proof that dedication would ultimately breed perfection.
Winning in Various Sertoes
When he took part in the Sertoes 24th edition for the second time, he was already sharpened, and after going through competition, they emerged the 5th best in the team. It was encouragement on their side since they had scooped the 8th position in the previous edition. Managing such a position in the cross country championships was indeed a daunting experience as they had to endure long winding landscapes through the Brazilian terrain. The roads were also in bad shape as they were untypically dusty during hot sunny days and were consequently muddy during the rains. In this case, Michel Terpin has come out as hardened with a taste of what greatness in this sporting activity looks like especially with participation in annual Sertoes rally events. As a promising rally driver, the T1 category of rally drivers will become one of the most competitive types with a host of experienced drivers.
