How driver Rodrigo Terpins became a rally legend.

Rodrigo Terpins is part of the Bull Sertoes rally team. He is the brother to Michel Terpins and a long time partner in the Brazilian rally scene. He has been able to take place in numerous competitions and he now mostly focuses a lot of effort on the Sertoes rally. He has made his team proud, and by using the #326 developed by MEM, he hopes to continue doing so for many more years. During the 22nd edition of the Sertoes rally that he took part in as part of the Bull Sertoes rally team, he was able to achieve position three in their respective category the T1 prototype category and an overall position eight for the entire event.


Rodrigo Terpins partnered with Fabricio Manchiana which was expected as the two were reported to have been seen in practice together and seemed to have a good working partnership at all levels. For them, they knew competition would be tough and especially in there category given that the #322 piloted by Michel Terpins would also be among the Thirty-eight competitors who graced the event. The 22nd edition was especially grueling as it covered a total of two thousand six hundred kilometers that was split into seven stages. All the stages were divided to draw the best from drivers especially in the special/timed routes. This being an off the road meant that the skills required would go a skill higher.

The rally would go through two states, and this was the part that navigator’s Fabricio Manchiana skills would be tested to the core. The rally as usual attracted fans from all over Brazil ready to cheer for Rodrigo and the other teams that were taking part. The sponsors had also shown up in larger number than the last edition, and this meant that the rally would be better funded and thus better overall. Terpins on board the T-Rex knew that for him a lot was riding on this event having missed a previous edition due to other pressing commitments and he was eager to showcase that his skills were still in tiptop form.
