After graduating from Saint Hilaire College with a degree in Business Management, Rodrigo Terpins began a career in the business industry when he was put into the position of Chief Executive Officer and President of one of the biggest women’s clothing stores in Brazil. He was employed at the store, which is called Lojas Marisa, from 1991 to 2006, and while he was there the business gained more popularity, and is now in nearly every shopping center in that country.
By 2008, he became the Senior Director of another company called T5 Participacoes. But in between all of his business responsibilities and accomplishments was a passion for the sport of race car driving. His interest in speed racing pushed him to train for Brazil’s largest off-road racing competition known as the Sertoes Rally, which is an annual multi-state event that consists of 7 stages. In 2015, Rodrigo Terpins and his brother Michel, along with two other drivers, formed a driving team called Bull Sertoes, and together they won the top prize in several of these greatly watched rallies.
Having successfully completed 5 Sertoes Rallies, Rodrigo Terpins is considered to be one of the most skilled race car drivers in his country. His team’s very capable V8 engine-equipped vehicle, nicknamed T-Rex, powered through the 2nd stage of the event’s 24th edition and helped the drivers secure a 1st place win. The machine was built by the team’s sponsor, MEM Motorsports, with a focus on making it strong enough to get over the rough and rocky terrain of the rally. After finishing this part of the race as champions, Rodrigo’s brother Michel described it as being very difficult and exhausting. Check out 1000variedade.com to know more.
