2014’s 22nd edition of the Sertoes Rally race saw Rodrigo Terpins and his racing partner that year finish in 7th place in the Prototypes T1 category. His brother, Michel Terpins, were not so lucky, being unable to finish the Special due to unexpected car difficulties. Rodrigo’s team also had a little car trouble, having a wreck that forced them to go slower to save the unstable suspension. 2017’s 25th edition of the Sertoes Rally saw Michel (pilot) team up with Maykel Justo (navigator). That year, since the rally was celebrating its 25th anniversary, the racetrack was especially long, the longest in the rally’s history.
It would span more than 3,300 km across three Brazilian states: Goias, Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso do Sul. That year Michel and Justo also modified their T-Rex to make it both faster and more powerful. During the 2017 rally, the two raced the four-day RN 1500 together. The two also paired up for both the Brazilian Championship and the Mitsubishi Cup that year. Every year the rally finalizes with the Prologue which features a competition with motorcycles, quadricycles, UTVs, and cars. Rodrigo, Michel, and other of their partners every year represent the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. For more details visit terra.com

And not long after that, the two formed the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. The team remains sponsored by 100% Eventos, Xarla, Bull Sertoes, and the support team Mem, For his part, Justo began his career with Sertoes in the truck category.
