Mr. Terpins together with his navigator Maykel Justo won two of the three stages in Prototypes T1. They were also in the top five fastest and forth in overall. The slowing down was due to a mechanical issue the car had and Michel being the best at what he does, decided to slow down to avoid more trouble with the car. His call was the right one because despite that they still managed to be among the best performing. The race was to be a three thousand three hundred kilometers scheduled to complete on the 26th.
