In a recent interview, one of Brazil’s best-known rally drivers gave his fans an opportunity to learn more about him. It was a candid interview, to say the least, and as Rodrigo Terpins opened his life to the world, he hoped to inspire others to become even better. As a professional driver and businessman Rodrigo has been able to achieve some feats that put him in a position of natural leadership.
After completing his degree in Business management, he took a job at Lojas Marisa where he would work and eventually become president of the company. At the time he would discover his love of Motorsport and delve into the same. As the years went on, he realized that he had a chance to become a professional driver. This would see him persuade his brother Michel to leave the cross country and join rally. Rodrigo eventually managed to convince him to do so in 2002 and together they formed the Bull Sertoes Rally Team. The team has grown to become a fan favorite, and its popularity continues to grow by the day. In recent years they have expanded by bringing in two vehicles, i.e., the T-Rex with each brother engaging a navigator which enables them to be more competitive eventually. The team has been one of Rodrigo Terpins greatest achievement despite him running his own company by the name Floresvale. This is one of the few companies that supply certified wood in Brazil. The company was established as a way of ensuring environmental protection and sustainability. Rodrigo Terpins was on record talking about the increase in awareness of the impact companies are having on the environment. For example, he spoke about an impact on his company brought about by the increased concern on the source of wood for furniture. As Brazil continues to be one of the leading suppliers of wood, there is a need to balance the cutting down of trees and replanting. For more details visit Ideamensch.
Rodrigo noted that the use of technology has had an impact on this as they are now able to use tools such as Google earth and maps to monitor activities in their forests.
