Less than 6 months before the start under the shadow of the Pyramids of Giza, the organizers of the Pharaons Rally are glad to announce the participation – already confirmed – of the last edition winner; the Spanish Joan Barreda with his team companion, the Portuguese Paulo Goncalves. Stage after stage, dune after dune, he will try again to take to the top the colors of the Team Speedbrain.
In the cars category, many repeaters from 2012 are confirmed for 2013. At the start will be the crew Zapletal/Marton (Offroadsport), Matzker/Lee and Krech/Reitbauer (Team Matzker) and also the ever presence of De Lorenzo twins at their eleventh participation at Pharaons, stating “we always come back with pleasure to the Pharaons”.
This is a rewarding result for the organizers that always dedicate great attention to the needs of all competitors, from the brave amateurs wishing to challenge the champions, to the official teams testing pilots and vehicles in view of the great rallies closing the year. Of course, the Pharaons is a rally for all!
We offer some 3.000 km of Selective Sections with reduced transfers and a demanding, hard route, with long and challenging stages. The reward to reach the Pyramids pays back all efforts of the week in the race.
As usual, the less experienced can leave any Selective Section and follow the asphalt up to the bivouac in order to dedicate more time to recover energy or repair the vehicle, while they can get back racing the next day, with penalties of course.
In order to help the assistants and logistics, we have only two bivouacs – supplied with all comforts, including the catering that will suit any demanding gourmet.
