Cologne. The incredible run continues: Gut Lärchenhof has now hosted the BMW International Open four times, and on each occasion a player has won the BMW Hole-in-One Award. In this year’s second round, it was the turn of England’s Aaron Rai to achieve this spectacular feat on the 16th hole. This stroke of genius with a 6-iron earned the 23-year-old a dream prize: The new BMW i8 Roadster*. Peter van Binsbergen, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing BMW Germany, handed the key over to the delighted 23-year-old.

The captivating appeal of the world’s most successful plug-in hybrid sports car can now be experienced with the roof down. The BMW i8 Roadster features a turbocharged three-cylinder engine, dihedral doors, a windscreen frame made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and an electrically operated soft-top, not to mention the plug-in hybrid drivetrain that has received multiple awards and, with a power output of 275 kW (374 hp), allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.

When the BMW International Open made its debut in Cologne in 2012, Englishman Andrew Marshall was the recipient of a BMW 640i Gran Coupé. Two years later, his compatriot James Heath hit a dream shot to win a BMW i8. Scotland’s Richie Ramsay was the third player to leave Gut Lärchenhof in another spectacular car: the BMW M760Li xDrive.
