Since starting out at the Sertoes Rally in 2002, Rodrigo Terpins has been driving race cars with his older brother, Rodrigo. For his first few years, he actually drove the races as a partner with Rodrigo. In the past several, however, both brothers, have driven with different partners. Their first race they both raced with other partners was 2014’s 22nd edition of the Sertoes Rally. During that one, Rodrigo raced with Fabricio Bianchini. The race saw them facing off against 38 competitors. The race that year was shorter than it had ever been, only crossing two Brazilian states: Minas Gerais and Goias.
Besides the car competitors, that particular rally had 11 motorcycle competitors. Not only was it unusually short, but Rodrigo Terpins says he thought it was easier and more enjoyable. The two did so well during the race that on the final day they decided they could afford to go at a slower pace which would also save the engine. They ended up in the excellent position of 8th place in that particular stage and eventually took 13th place overall. Both brothers have also been driving the MEM Motorsport developed T-Rex in the past few races as well.
In addition to the Sertoes Rally, the brothers also frequently race in the Brazilian Cross-Country Rally and in the Mitsubishi Cup. The brothers both almost always do well in any race they enter. It’s their extreme passion for sports competition which they inherited from their father, Jack Terpins. Jack is famous for playing basketball for Hebraica during the 60s and 70s. After his basketball years, he became a great proponent of youth interests. He also became a great community leader becoming president of Maccabi World Union and the Latin American Jewish Council.
According to crunchbase.com, the Terpins founded the Bull Sertoes Rally Team which is sponsored by 100% Eventos, Xarla, Bull Sertões , Terpins & Cintra Advogados, Motul and Ohlins. For further details about the brothers visit www.rodrigoterpins.com.br or www.michelterpins.com.br.
