Rodrigo Turpins is the former director of e-commerce of operations of Marisa’s, a retail chain of clothing stores owned by his family in Brazil, but his passion and greatest achievements might just be his rise to fame in rally racing. Brazilian rally racing is an off-road cross country racing event where participants attempt to maneuver and navigate their choice of off-road vehicle over a pre-designated route which can be very treacherous and may include many different terrains, such as sand, mud, rocks, hills and gullies. According to odiario.com, the terrain can be very difficult to navigate and the event can last many days. Participants may race in their choice of off-road vehicle such as car, dirt bike, sports utility vehicle or 4-wheeler.

 

Rodrigo Terpins is a member of the Bull Sertões Rally Team, a team created by he and his brother Michel. Although Michel Terpins is most known for racing on motor bikes, he too is well known for his love of rally sport racing. The brothers are becoming legends in the sport and moving both their team and names up the ranks. So much so, MEM Motorsports Organization partnered with the team allowing them to pilot their prized rally car known as “T-Rex.” T-Rex was debuted in 2011 by MEM with its 240 HP, 12-valve MWM turbo diesel engine with 4×4 traction.
