Terpins is a name to reckon within the Brazilian rally sport; on one hand for the Terpins brothers and the other for Michel Terpins. Michel Terpins stands out as one of the Brazilian drivers to have participated and won most of the rallying competitions in his lifetime. He formed the duo in 2015, and since then he has been using his T-Rex, which has landed him a number of podiums as well as left him with awesome classifications.

Recognitions of Michel Terpins

Alongside his brother, Justo, Michel has participated in a couple of competitions. For example, the two brothers took part in the 22nd edition of Sertões Rally. In this rally, Michel participated in the Prototypes T1 category and finished the test in seventh place. The terrain was such a tough one and required much caution and skill.

Nevertheless, the duo’s car could not make it to the finish during the special.

Together with his brother, Michel won the 2nd stage of the 24th edition of the Sertões Rally, which placed him at position 5 overly. The 25-year edition of the Sertões Rally has given the duo another chance to prove their expertise and the power of their car. This edition is considered to be one of the longest off-road event in Brazil, as it involves about 3,300 km of road.

Michel Terpins’ debut

Michel Terpins’s debut on the Sertões Rally grid happened in 2002 where he participated in the motorcycle category before sailing for his brother in the cars. Over the past years, he has advanced in his piloting. Such evolution has helped him to win a number of stages and managed to give him a position in the Brazilian Championship of Cross Rally Country.

Michel enjoys every competition he takes part in, and is always prepared for the unknown considering that every stage of the day presents him with new challenges. This implies that the future and end of any competition is unknown. However, one thing that keeps him moving is his car. The T-Rex is a strong care that has been designed meticulously. Additionally, a V8 engine has been added to the car to make it more powerful and appropriate for the rough terrain.

Workplaces are not always created equal, and that is especially true on the topic of gender-equality. Women have often had to fight to have access to any high position. This has been fought for years, and is still fought today. But some women are proof that the ability is there and they are helping others to reach for the stars.

Susan McGalla, a woman who stepped into a male-driven company, proved that a woman can stand tall and even become president of American Eagle Outfitters. She was raised by parents who wanted to teach their daughter that no matter your gender that you can work for what you wanted and achieve it. Susan took that attitude and applied it to her career, getting a degree in Business Marketing and joining American Eagle, who allowed her to excel to the top. Following there, she moved on to founding Executive Consulting and becoming the Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development for the Pittsburg Steelers.

Susan McGalla has spoken to many audiences about how a woman can get ahead in the business place. She is glad to see the change in people as more women are able to focus on being seen as professionals and not targeted as women. She understands that having confidence working with both genders is instrumental to her success and she shares that.

Women’s initiatives and networks seek to help people network together and support each other. It is not enough to cause the change, but they can help women to stand out. Executive sponsorship can help bring about that change by helping women create opportunities, and being an advocate for them in the workplace. And statistics show that companies that are more gender diverse are 15% more often to excel past other companies. So the company would likely benefit from helping more women to excel in the workplace.
