Rodrigo Terpins is one of the most respected rally drivers from Brazil. His passion for sports comes from his family who are very active in sports. His father who is known as Jack Terpins was active in sports during the 60s and 70s. He held high positions in the Jewish sports institutions which might have triggered the passion for sports to his sons. Moreover, Rodrigo is the brother of Michel Terpins who is also very talented in the rally racing in Brazil. The brothers are co-founders of a team known as the Bull Sertoes in which they take part. The team also participates as one of the main competitors in the Brazilian off-road races.
Rodrigo Terpins’ Success in his Racing Career
The 22nd edition of the Bull Sertoes was one of the most unforgettable races Rodrigo and his partner Fabricio Bianchini took part. The race was a long distance of 2600km and included two states and seven stages. The pair was aboard the #326 car which did not disappoint as they managed to seize the 7th position in the final score out of a total of 38 competitors. This was a great performance for Rodrigo as only a few of the competitors managed to finish and qualify as the top 5. Again, Rodrigo Terpins stated the performance was exceeded their expectation even though there were some adversities on the way they still achieved promising results.
Further, Rodrigo and his brother Michel Terpins piloted the T-Rex car that was developed for the off- road rough terrain by the MEM Motorsport Organization. Again, while Michel Terpins began his interests in motorsport in 2002 when he joined the motorcycles racing, Rodrigo had his interest’s right from his childhood days when he would spend time fixing cars. The brothers who have the same passion for cars, have raced for the Brazilian cross country rally championship and the Sertoes rally for the past four seasons on-board the T-Rex. Rodrigo believes that his success in racing is because of his perseverance, hard work, and dedication that has seen him grace podiums and achieve victories in most of the competitions.
