They made a good team and won several awards for finishing in the top five with other team mates. In 2014 they won the Leg of the Rallies Dos Sections.
This race was one of the longest runs they had to endure. It was over 2,000 km in a 10 day period. They raced through 10 towns through mud, wind, and cold conditions. Their cars the T-Rex had some mechanical problems that took time to fix. Still they came in fifth qualifying them to participate in the Brazilian Cross Country Championship.
