In 2014’s 22nd edition of the Sertoes Rally race, Rodrigo Terpins and his driving partner, Fabricio Bianchini, of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team took third place in the overall rankings. The multi-stage cross-country race was shorter than usual that year, only passing through two Brazilian states. But although it was shorter, it was still very challenging, something most racers thoroughly enjoy. The first of the several stages of the races departed from Goiania. In addition to the cars, there were also motorcycle competitors. Terpins has been racing for years, but that edition was the first time he had driven a T-Rex. You can odiario.com for more info.
He and his partner did so well in the race that they were able to go at a much slower speed for the last stage and thus save the engine. 2014 was also the first year for Rodrigo’s brother, Michel Terpins, drove a T-Rex. They both decided they preferred it. During 2016’s 24th edition of the rally, Michel and Rodrigo Terpins drove a T-Rex for the third year in a row. The T-Rex is a recent designed developed by the MEM team. The 2016 race was 3,143 kilometers long and passed through three states. Michel drove with Maykel Justo who served as his navigator. The two did very well that year, leading the pack as champions of the Brazilian Cross Country Rally.
The first two stages of the Sertoes Rally race are especially important to the competitors since the points gleaned from them count toward the individual team’s standing in that year’s national championship. Every year the rally takes places over the course of seven days. Rodrigo is a very successful businessman and is happily married to Flavia Terpins. He frequently holds business dinners at his home for business associates from all over the world. He and Michel are also the original founders of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team which continues to be sponsored by 100% Events and Xarla.
