Rodrigo Terpins was destined for a career in professional athletics. Being raised by a father who had hit the highest level of basketball in Brazil helped to instill an ironclad work ethic into Terpins early years. He would follow his older brother into the professional rally car driving circuit and there he would ascend toward the top of his industry. Rodrigo would peak in 2014 with a 3rd place finish in the T1 Prototypes Class at the Sertoes Rally, one of the most difficult circuits in all of Brazil’s rally racing scene. Despite the 3rd place finish and the thrill that came with it, Terpins has seemed infinitely more excited about his work as an entrepreneur. Let’s learn about Rodrigo and see what plans he has for the future.
