The “58th Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett”, the famous international FAI aeronautical race, was launched Saturday 30 August 2014 very early from Vichy, France. 17 gas-balloon teams from 10 nations participated in this race. Wilhelm Eimers and Matthias Zenge from Germany won the race by landing in Sicily, Italy, on Monday 1 September 2014 after having flown 1410.64 km. The Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett is the most prestigious aviation event in the world. The objective of this gas balloon race is simple: to fly the furthest distance from the start (this year from Vichy, France) using the open airspace available.
