The Bull Sertões Rally Team ensured that in the early years the Terpin brothers were always partnered and this brought out the best as both a driver and a navigator. The team would later expand so as to give the brothers an opportunity to be what they excelled in most, driving.
The navigational skills of both were also well developed but driving better suited them this is when MEM came in and developed the T-Rex a T1 category prototype which would be fully developed to be there car of choice in future competitions.
The T-rex has been so reliable for the Bull Sertões Rally Team that they have now fully endorsed it and even during the 25th edition of the Sertoes rally where Michel Terpins took on Maykel Justo as his new navigator for the new route it was the car of choice.

This was one of the challenging editions the Bull Sertões Rally Team had to encounter but they were still able to perform well.
Michel terpins still ensures he balances his rally career with other commitments that he has.
