Full Steam Ahead Frankfurt to Long Island

How the Island of Subsea cables became the home of the Lamborghini Car Rally. InterGlobix in conversation with Hunter Newby about the second edition of an event that reflects the connection of this industry’s key shapers with the passion of sport and lifestyle.

Car Rally is all about networking and adventure amongst the C-level and beyond. Interestingly, car rally has been a recent phenomenon but it dates from the first Monte Carlo rally of January 1911, much before luxury cars became synonyms for lifestyle networking.

Hunter Newby talks with us about The Long Island Car Rally, introduced and started by KJ Orth from Frankfurt, Germany and one of the managing directors of Ancatel in Frankfurt.

The excitement is extreme, driving through cities with rolling pastures. KJ attended many CNX events as the Master of Ceremonies for Ancatel and DE-CIX customers in Frankfurt. At the end of two days of the conference, KJ, known for his passion for cars, hosted a small private car rally. The wheels in this rally steered from Kazakhstan, a big classic car restoration and hosting facility, to Frankfurt, now also home to Lamborghini. Dozens of cars set out from Kazakhstan. They would go through Hessen, through Bavaria – a new adventurous route every year with the return planned to Kazakhstan or back to KJ’s house, which is in Luckenbach, in the suburbs of Frankfurt.
