Many loyal rally racing enthusiasts do not usually have what it takes to negotiate the hard stage of the Sertões Rally championships in Brazil, or the courage to take and complete the most advanced rally car driving courses in order to master rally car driving techniques and other “secrets of the craft.”
In fact, Rodrigo Terpins was one of those sports enthusiasts who, despite the fact rally racing is more physically grueling and mentally challenging than its circuit-racing rivals, later entered a unique world of adrenaline-fueled racing along with his younger brother Michel Terpins. After successfully completing five Sertões Rally at the age of 44, the elder brother realized, his career as a professional rallycross driver has been based on three factors: discipline, experience, and patience.

Rodrigo Terpins, a sports enthusiasts turned rally racing driver, was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He comes from a family of sports enthusiasts, including his father Jack Terpins who is a former basketball player.
