Michel Terpins is not only a rally driver, but he also has engineering skills that he was able to obtain as he was growing up. Understanding the cars that he drives is an advantage since he can identify the best requirements that enable him to steer his vehicle for long distances on rough terrains. Rally cars are a little bit different from the regular cars. As much as they all operate on similar types of roads, rally cars are typically modified so that they move at a much higher speed within a short time.
Michel Terpins is a little bit unique from other well renowned and successful rally drivers since he was able to rise to the top within a limited period. Others in the same field of specialization have had to undergo in-depth training to become competent in driving fast cars.
For the successful career and life, Michel Terpins has his father to thank. It is because his dad introduced him to the race track when Michel was just a young boy. As much as his father does not engage in rally driving, he ensured that he had capitalized on the passion and talent of his child. Michel’s father specializes in playing basketball, and he always makes a point to appear in the field even in the midst of his busy schedule.
Rally driving encompasses different categories, and Michel Terpins specializes entirely in the T1 Prototype category. He started participating in rally driving in 2002, and at first, he was riding a motorcycle. The engagement was very risky, but Michel Terpins continued to engage in the sport as he has always admired speed. As much as he did not become very fortunate in the motorcycle category, he was able to use the motorcycle platform and proceed forward and start to driving cars.
His brother, Rodrigo Terpins, is the one who motivated him to engage himself in driving rally cars. Michel Terpins saw the change of career as an excellent chance to involve himself in different categories that were associated with driving rally cars. At first, the two brothers worked together, but they later started driving different vehicles in the same category of the T1 Prototype.
