Toril brothers will compete together in 2018!

05.04.2018: The two brothers will share a racing program for this season, competing on board an LMP3 in the European Le Mans Series.

The two brothers will share a racing program for this season, competing on board an LMP3 in the European Le Mans Series.

For the first time in the carers of Alex and Miguel Toril, the Spanish-German drivers will share a complete racing program aboard the same car.

It will be the European prototypes benchmark championship, the European Le Mans Series (ELMS); a contest made of 6 appointments, with races of 4 hours duration each.

After the success achieved last season, winning the Michelin Le Mans Cup, the youngest of the brothers, promotes a step up to the main championship of the category.

In addition, Miguel lands in a new category, bringing his experience in endurance competitions, although the new direction in his sporting career will represent a new challenge.

On board again of an LMP3 Norma with Nissan engine, managed by the Luxembourg team DKR Engineering and with Jean Glorieux as third driver, the 2018 program has many similarities to that of last 2017, guaranteeing an optimal starting point to relive great moments in the new season.

Alex Toril:
"I am very happy with this project. After winning the Michelin Le Mans Cup last year, racing at the ELMS is the natural step. I think we have a great team and a lineup of drivers that allow us to fight for the championship.

I am very happy to be able to count on Jean Glorieux again, he is a great driver and of course being able to race with my brother is something very special. I'm sure we'll share a lot of successes and enjoyable moments this season!"

Miguel Toril:
"a new sports year and a new challenge. No doubt competing with my brother will be a unique circumstance but I wish it to become very successful.

With Alex I have the advantage of being able to compare myself with one of the strongest drivers of the category and get up to speed as quickly as possible. This year, we're going to have fun."

ELMS 2018 calendar.

April 13th - 15th Paul Ricard (France)
May 11th - 13th Monza (Italy)
July 20th - 22nd Reb Bull Ring (Austria)
