audience share).

It’s a crucial acknowledgement for Jvd International and for the whole team that has worked with dedication and
passion along these 10 years; this being a greater push to realize an outstanding edition.

Pharaons has nevertheless – beside France Television – a brilliant TV coverage, here below listed (list still to be finalized)

11° Pharaons International Cross Country Rally


We are in a delicate moment of the cross country rallies.
The Dakar cancellation puts the whole speciality into a crisis: teams that are in trouble, pilots that don’t
know what they can propose to the sponsors as alternative events, our world is looking itself in the mirror
and it’s asking which will be the future.

Someone talks about new rallies that are being studied by ASO, other rallies that are moving their dates,
obliging pilots and teams to do choices that, at the end, will damage everyone: a discouraging situation,

opinion with enthusiasm. Sand, sand, and sand again! Pure amusement in a succeed of beautiful

The track: as usual the Pharaons 2008 will have 7 stages, for a total of nearly 3000 kms, with minimum
transfers (only 120 kms during the 2007 edition) and with start and arrival of the selective sections near the
There will be many sections absolutely cross country and some stages will be as a “boucle”, let the main
rally group on the same bivouac for 2 stages, this will be very appreciated by the assistances. After all a
2008 innovation: there will be a “marathon” stage to put all at the same level, professional and private. The
track, third certitude, unique in the African panorama.....
