Rodrigo Terpins: Racing Champion

Have you heard of the name Rodrigo Terpins? If not, let me tell you about him. He is an outstanding citizen of society and I believe the world benefits from hearing about his life and career thus far. Rodrigo Terpins is a Native of Brazil. He is known for his drive, his athletic abilities, and his love for Brazilian Rally Racing. He is part of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. He was born into a successful family who love sports as much as he does. His father, Jack Terpins, made a name for himself through basketball and was also the president of the Latin American Jewish Council and the Maccabi Latin America Confederation. Rodrigo looked up to his father and seeing how successful he was only fueled his dream and desire to become a rally racer. Rodrigo’s brother, Michel Terpins, is also a rally race car driver in Brazil. They have a strong bond and their love of the sport has only made that bond stronger. They also spent their childhood together fixing cars and that was part of why they both took an interest in the racing world. To see more visit their website



They created a team that they raced on together but also enjoyed competing against each other in several different races. The friendly rivalry was something that they both took pleasure in. Rodrigo gives great credit to his brother for his achievements and believes without him, he would not be where he is today. Rodrigo is a highly decorated rally driver. Today he races with his teammate, partner, and friend Fabricio Manchiana. Together they race in courses that push them to their furthest potential. Rally racing is mentally and physically grueling, but Rodrigo Terpins enjoys the adrenaline rush that comes along with it. There have been several courses he has had to push through with obstacles and encompassed by steep terrain. Each has made him a better driver and racer in the long run. He credits his patience, experience in the driver’s seat and passion for racing in the T1 Category Prototype for keeping him motivated and looking forward to the next race.
