Champion of the Road, Rodrigo Terpins

One of the most popular names when it comes to sports in Brazil is Rodrigo Terpins. He is a rally driver and has loved the sport ever since he was young, since he has a passion for speed and loves the adrenalin rush of competition. Rodrigo Terpins has raced all over Brazil and he is more known for participating in the Sertoes Rally, which for five years he has completed successfully at the age of forty-four. It appears that his love for rally driving is because he comes from a sports family. His father used to be a former basketball player, and his brother is also a rally driver. Both Terpins brothers participate in the Sertoes Rally and other event rallies.


In the recent Sertoes Rally held in Brazil, Terpins and his partner, Fabricio Manchiana, joined the race which was 2,600 kilometers long and went through two states. Terpins and Manchiana teamed up and ended up finishing in third place, and they both were overall placed in the eighth position out of thirty-eight teams. This rally was known as the biggest event in Brazil because it attracted many people from various sponsors to other rally drivers and to fans.


When interviewed after the event, Rodrigo Terpins admitted that he was surprised that he and his partner finished in third place. During the race, they had to adapt their vehicle to the terrain while making sure that they were safe and not endangering anyone.


Terpins attended the University of Sail Hilaire and learned about business management. With the skills that he acquired at the university, Terpins put them into play and was able to move up to being the president at Lojas Marisa. He was with the company for sixteen years, and in 2007 he decided to leave his position as president. For more details visit Crunchbase.
