The eldest of the Toril brothers will perform again a full season program of the BES aboard the Mercedes AMG GT GT3 from team Black Falcon.

For the third consecutive year Miguel Toril will have a position on the BES starting grid and will again be part of the structure of the German team Black Falcon; the vehicle for this season will also be the Mercedes AMG GT GT3. The line up of the team will be very similar to that of the previous season as the Spanish driver will again have Oliver Morley (United Kingdom) as teammate and this time will be joined by the German Manuel Metzger, current winner of the 24 hours of Nürburgring, to fight for the PRO-AM category championship.

With a calendar also equivalent to previous seasons, the BES will have five races throughout the European territory: Monza, Silverstone and the final race of Barcelona will be raced with a duration of three hours; at the 1000 kilometers of Paul Ricard the race will last six hours and as jewel of the crown, the 24 hours of Spa will be the most important event of the season.

As in previous years, the BES will continue to offer unrivaled top-level competitions and media repercussions in the GT3 category.

Miguel Toril: "I am grateful for another year being part of the Team Black Falcon and being able to continue my sporting career at the highest level of GT3. I am eager to start this new season and that we can demonstrate everything learned in the previous year offering the best possible result to both the team, the sponsors and all the followers who support me and follow me day by day. I thank all those who have helped me to be here for another season. Let the show begin”.
