Rodrigo Terpins, son of retired Brazilian basketball player and sports director, Jack Terpins, and brother to Michel Terpins, is a well-known rally driver from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Rodrigo Terpins grew up in a very sporty family, so the love of sports was never to far from hand. It is no wonder that he became such a success in rally racing. He began his career in rally driving as a member of the Bull Sertoes Rally Team.
Rodrigo and Michel are actually both rally drivers, in fact they work for the same team. Michel started his career as the pilot for his brother after first racing in the Motorcycle class several years ago. Both of the Terpins brothers are now driving the “T-Rex”, as part of the MEM Motorsport organization, which is a ethanol modified V8. They have been an official team of the organization for several years now. Recently the brothers finished third in 2600 kilometer race designed to push their mental and physical fitness to the limit. The Terpins are sponsored by Bull Sertoes, Xarla, Motul, MEM support team, and several others.
According to agenciaoglobo.com, Rodrigo himself excels at the T1 prototype rally racing category, a factor that enabled him to build a massive fan base in his native country of Brazil. In order to more closely connect with his fans Rodrigo has built a large social networking platform on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and more. He has a personal website for his fans to keep track of future events that he will be part of, as well as links to recent interviews and a biography. Rodrigo has become a rather large proponent to charity in Brazil. He and his brother Michel also support Green Initiative in their program to plant trees in the Atlantic Forest.
