Rodrigo Terpins is the son of Jack Terpins. Jack Terpins is the current president of the Latin American Jewish Council, vice president of the Maccabi World Union and the president of the Maccabi Latin American Confederation. He was one of the most prominent Basketball players in the early seventies in the country during a time when he played for Hebraica. His career in basketball would encourage his son to become sports personalities in their own right. He realized that Rodrigo Terpins had a passion for fiddling with cars from a young age and it was thus no surprise when he became a car enthusiast and later joined the world of rallying. This for Jack Terpins was a proud moment, and he would support him dearly till he would come of age as a well-established driver.
He was in the organization for sixteen years, and it was after reaching the top that he would later reign to begin his own company and focus on rallying. He is a man who has no problem of getting out of his comfort zone, and his competitive nature would prove to be very helpful in this area. He has been a member of the Bull Sertoes rally team since its inception, and he continues to be a member. The bull Sertoes rally team was a team that was founded when he together with his brother Michel Terpins realized the need to professionalize their careers as rally drives and make it more than a hobby. The team initially was a two-man show that barely had a management team running it. Today the Bull Sertoes rally team has been nothing short of Phenomenal giving some of the best performances in the Sertoes rally circuit. The Sertoes Rally circuit is considered the hardest and to have the most challenging routes and terrains in the entire Brazilian rally calendar. This however for Rodrigo is a positive as it means only the best can win.
