Patrick Dempsey has realized just about every dream: successful actor, father of three, surgeon by proxy (Dr. McDreamy in the TV series Grey’s Anatomy) and ace race-car driver. The current owner of Dempsey Racing participates regularly in the 24 Hours of Le Mans behind the wheel of his Porsche 911 RSR. Here are our two minutes stolen from his new career at full tilt.
