Rodrigo Terpins has inherited two big passions from his father, Jack Terpins: A passion for entrepreneurship and an even bigger passion for competitive sports. Back in the 60s and 70s, Jack Terpins, famously known as Jackao, played basketball for Hebraica. After college, he began defending the interests of young people and became a very influential community leader. He has since served as president of the Latin American Jewish Council, president of the Macabi Latin American Confederation, and vice president of the Macabi World Union.
Rodrigo Terpins and his brother Michel have had a big presence in the hugely popular Sertoes Rally since the turn of the century. They are also the founders of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. 2014’s 22nd edition of the rally was especially unique because it was much shorter than usual, only running through two Brazilian states: Minas Gerais and Goias. That year the race went much better than Rodrigo had anticipated. It was also easier and more enjoyable a race than previous races. This edition was also unique for Rodrigo because although he had been in many races prior, it was his first time driving a T-Rex.
The past couple of editions have seen Michel Terpins partner with Maykel Justo. In the 25th edition of the rally, the two started with all of their competitors in Goiania. They completed the entire race in a T-Rex. The fifth stage of the race spanned from Barra do Garcas to Coxim. In its entirety, the race went through Goias, Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso do Sul. They finished in tenth play overall. Michel first joined Rodrigo in the rally races in 2002, starting out in the motorcycle category. The two brothers joined forces to found the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. His newest partner, Justo, also did not start out in cars but began in the truck category of competition.
