ABU DHABI // A first-time visitor to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship has walked away with a brand new Mercedes-Benz GLC 250.

Elena Karnaukhova, 27, was the lucky winner of the Emirates Motor Company raffle, which was announced on Monday after the event was held in January.

The 27-year-old said: “The cars displayed around the course were really attractive, so my friends and I decided to check out their beautiful interiors up close.

“Then, when I got the call from EMC that I had actually won the GLC, I was shocked. It was a surreal moment. Out of thousands, they chose the golf ball that I had dropped off, coincidentally, at Marina Mall Abu Dhabi to complete the draw process.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank EMC for this wonderful, unforgettable and extremely valuable gift. It’s an incredible car. Everything is perfect about it – the exterior, interior, size, capabilities - I love Mercedes-Benz. Now, I’m eager to learn more about golf for next year’s tournament.”

Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship 2016 is sponsored by Emirates Motor Company, the authorised Mercedes-Benz distributor in Abu Dhabi and the flagship company of Al Fahim Group.
