Pharaons Rally: JVD Info after cancellation of Transafricaine.

Statement of the organiser JVD: The sudden cancellation of Transafricaine race in Egypt has been for us a bolt out of the blue on June 29th, as the actual work for the progress and the high-quality outcome of the two events below the Sphynx was steadily improving without hindrances.

Today we find ourselves forced to answer to an amplified circulation of false and unfair news by Mister Patrick Zaniroli and its Transafricaine organization. JVD has kindly committed itself along these months and we never thought to be obliged to answer to such insults.

JVD wishes first of all to officially clarify to have submitted each act and document to its lawyer in order to proceed in safeguarding the name of its company and its Event Pharaons International Cross Country Rally, both in Italy and in France, against the unproven and distorted accusations received through press bodies and web releases by Mister Zaniroli.

The sponsor agreements related to our Events are and stay still private decisions and do not pertain in any way to Mister Zaniroli nor to anybody else. This is why we reckon ridiculous to answer through press releases on this issue, obviously used by Mister Zaniroli with the aim to justify its renunciation to keep up with the agreements taken with our Company and with all his pilots.

On the other hand the Jacky Ickx JVD shareholding and friendship is and stays a personal and private matter as well, and Mister Zaniroli should in any case refrain to spread news on our shareholders. Mister Zaniroli will have to respond formally also of these actions.

Finally, JVD International keeps on with its work for the 2009 edition of Pharaons International Cross Country Rally, while announcing its inclusion in the 2010 FIA World Cup as a contribution to its re-launch.

Moreover it launches again the "Pharaons Classic", a formula already proposed in the 2005/2007 editions of the event which is this year reserved to the TAC "exiled" pilots who don’t have yet discovered the "Pharaons" Egypt, and many have already answered to this call. All info from July 6th on [ ].
