Know More about Rodrigo Terpins’ Colorful Racing Career

Rodrigo Terpins is a rider and a team member of Bull Sertões Rally Team. Just like his brother Michel Terpins, he has taken part in some competitions gaining a lot of victories in Brazil’s main rally championships. Rodrigo Terpins represents the T1 prototype category. In the Sertões Rally’s 22nd edition he emerged 7th. The only issue here is that the rally was relatively shorter compared the other years. In essence, it only traversed two states which were Minas Gerais and Goiás.

His father Jack Terpins, and commonly known as Jackão, is a very prominent figure in Brazil and an iconic name in Hebrew. As a youth, Jackão played basketball for Hebraica in the 60s and 70s. In 1991, he became the president of Sports. He has also served as the president of other institutions including the Maccabi Latin American Confederation and Latin American Jewish Council. Recently, he held the position of vice president of the Maccabi World Union. Jackão, just like his son Rodrigo, showed lots of commitment in his roles.

Together with Michel Terpins, they formed a formidable team. The pair is preparing to take part in the biggest rally of their career so far on Thursday, August 31, 2017. This rally is scheduled to cover a distance of 438.86 km, with the 5th stage having 666km between Barra do Garças (MT) and Coxim (MS). Along the way, they will run over stones, piçarra, trial and many other impediments. This race will occur in Midwest traversing various states from Goiás, to Mato Grosso and ending in Mato Grosso do Sul.

Just a few years back, the love for off-road and speed influenced the two São Paulo-based brothers to come up with the Bull Sertões Rally Team. Rodrigo Terpins (44 years old) and Michel Terpins (40 years) have raced together for four seasons. They use T-Rex, which is a product of MEM Motorsport. They take part in various rallies including Sertões Rally and Brazilian Cross Country Rally Championship. These brothers are some of the most feared participants in these rallies and always have very high stakes of winning. Follow him on Facebook to know more
