Rodrigo Terpins is a member of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team a team they founded with his brother Michel Terpins. This team was founded when his brother moved from Cross country to rallying. The two come from a family that highly values sports given their father, Jack Terpins played professional basketball in the late seventies and early eighties. Rallying would become an important aspect of both their lives and as such they have dedicated a good portion of their time to training and competing in a number of events most notable being the annual Sertoes Rally. This is the toughest rally in the Brazilian rally circuit, and it entails an all-terrain route that in almost all editions covers more than 2600 kilometers. Terpins has participated in about five of these events in which he was a member of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. During the 22nd edition, he and his partner Fabricio Manchiani were on board the T-Rex competing in the T1 prototype category where they managed to finish third in their respective category and scoop position eight overall. Rodrigo Terpins even was instrumental in convincing his brother to move from Cross country to rally at a time when his career was at its peak. He would then help him settle into the new competition by working with him as a navigator before finally taking on the driver’s seat. Check out broadcast.com
