Rodrigo Terpins is a name that will go down in history. He is a family man first but second he is a rally racer and it is clear by his statistics, the sport runs through his blood and veins. His most recent accomplishment included finishing third place in a race that ran through two states and seven courses. He finished eighth place among thirty eight competitors. It was a truly amazing feat! You may ask yourself how does a champion like this come to be? Where does he come from and what was the background that led him to this success? I have to believe it was Rodrigo’s upbringing. His family consists of equally famous rally driver Michael Terpins and father, Jack Terpins, whos own success was in Basketball and politics. Having people like this to look up to throughout childhood has to be a strong influence on who as person you are destined to become. I see in Rodrigo Terpins a love, passion, commitment, and dedication to racing understood by few. Together he and his brother have come together to create the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. Perhaps them racing together is what pushes Rodrigo to be the very best he can be because as I stated before his only passion before racing is his family. As anyone who is a follower of rally racing can tell you, it is a tough sport that requires the drive and heart only a true champion can carry. Rodrigo has proven himself time and time again to be this champion by never giving up and by overcoming obstacles that have come to him on and off on the course. He has the knowledge of cars and knows the ins and outs of the mechanics that will lead you to a gleaming victory or a disappointing loss. He makes it a point to ensure all cars are ready to go when they hit the finish line. This shows his heart that he will look out for others on the course and not just himself. Rodrigo Terpins is a class act deserving of the awards, recognition, and fame he has found himself and will without a doubt, find himself more of in the future. Follow Rodrigo Terpins on Facebook.
