The Brazilian businessman, Rodrigo Terpins, is a leader in the Brazilian textile and environmental reforestation industries. His greatest passion, however, is racing. Rodrigo and his brother Michel have been racing at the annual Sertoes Rally for most of the past two decades. As the older brother and more veteran racer, Rodrigo mentored his brother in the sport after Michel joined the scene in 2002. This hugely popular multi-state race is the largest off-road event in the country. The two also founded the Bull Sertoes Rally Team.


For many years he partnered with his brothers during these races. For the past few years, however, the two have raced with separate racing partners. In 2014’s 22nd edition of the Sertoes Rally Rodrigo partnered with Fabricio Bianchini. The two ended up in 3rd position in the overall standings. Rodrigo Terpins maintains social media accounts on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.
