Bertrand Piccard

Initiator, chairman and pilot of Solar Impulse, Bertrand Piccard, is an ambassador of 80 Day Race. A shared vision on sustainability and the passion for adventure convinced Piccard to express his support to the global sustainable race.

“I’m excited to see what innovations the 80 Day Race competitors will develop to overcome the many challenges they will face,” Piccard said. “Like for Solar Impulse, they will have to achieve what many people believe is impossible. The way ahead will be difficult, but with a willingness to challenge common assumptions, the race will bring to the fore pioneering individuals and technologies that will have an impact for the world far beyond the adventure itself.”
