The country of Brazil has many fans of the race car driving competition known as the Sertoes Rally, which is a race that consists of several stages and is held each year in that area. Rodrigo Terpins is one of the rally’s most skilled drivers, having won a great number of awards in the event over the years. Along with his brother, Michel, he has participated in these rallies on a team they named the Bull Sertoes Team, which is considered to be one of the best in the challenge.

Rodrigo Terpins has had a passion for the speed racing sport since he was very young. He comes from a family that is very athletically inclined. Aside from his brother also being a rally driver, his father, Jack Terpins, gained popularity in the country in the 1960s and 1970s as a professional basketball player. Together he and his brother have been victorious at most of the driving contests they’ve ever entered.

In addition to being a successful rally driver, Rodrigo Terpins has also been trained in Business Management at Saint Hilaire College, and he was previously the President of a women’s clothing store called Lojas Marisa. Rodrigo later left his position at that retail business to pursue his passion for race car driving, and he is currently the Senior Director of a company by the name of T5 Partipacoes.

Rodrigo Terpins has so far completed a total of 5 Sertoes Rallies, and has finished with high rankings. There are 7 stages to the popular driving competition, which is known as the largest off-road driving event in Brazil. He and his brother, Michel, along with their other team members, won the 2nd stage of this event in its 24th edition. This stage has been described as being one of the most difficult and exhausting ones in the race, due to the fact that it involves driving over mountainous roads.

It is Rodrigo Terpin’s perseverance and hard work that helped him win so many of the rally driving competitions he’s been in, and his big fan base stays connected to him through the social media websites he maintains.
