Patrick Dempsey Shifts Career Focus To Become A Globetrotting Race Car Pro

You probably know him from popular TV show Grey’s Anatomy, but what you probably didn’t know about is the fact that Dr. Derek Shepherd, as he is known in Grey’s Anatomy, is not only a fan of car racing but has also taken part in several races.

Patrick Dempsey, his real name, is a racing pro who has a podium finish at the annual IMSA Tudor series GT race which is usually held in Virginia International Raceway. In addition to that, Dempsey has been known to fly to various destinations such as Dubai and France so as to take part in a number of races.

Dempsey, who is considered one of the sexiest men on the planet, bid adieu to the show so as to focus on his racing career and he some few offers which are already on the table. However, it seems that Dempsey’s heart is on the race track.

Born in Maine, Dempsey was a champion ski racer who had his own Olympic dreams. But all that had to be put on a hold when acting came calling. It is good to note that Dempsey has without a doubt dominated the world of TV.   

Dempsey was hooked on racing ever since his ex-wife Jillian Fink surprised him with a three-day driving experience ticket. Ironically, racing got in the way of their marriage and the two, Fink and Dempsey, separated.

Dempsey, together with his team Dempsey Proton racing will be supported by Porsche as they prepare to take part in this year’s French Endurance Championship. Dempsey will be driving a Porsche 911 RSR.

While speaking Autosport Magazine, An AG Board member of Porsche said that, "Porsche is pleased to support Patrick Dempsey and his team."
