56th Annual Gordon Bennett Gas Balloon Race


The 56th Annual Gordon Bennett Cup is under way from just East of Zurich, Switzerland.

17 teams are competing in this multi-day endurance event in the air.

It can be fun to track the teams via realtime GPS tracking over the many days they are in the air during the competition. So, here is a link to the tracking page:


Currently Team USA-2 is in the lead at just under 700km.

A company called WAY (Where Are You) is proving the GPS data for tracking and judging. Their link is here:



That's pretty cool. Unfortunately, I couldn't open either of the links that you gave. I'll have to check again when I get home.
