Patrick Dempsey’s Le Mans podium dream realized (VIDEO)


After four attempts, including one near-miss two years ago, Patrick Dempsey finally made it to the podium at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year.

Dempsey, who is now competing in the full FIA World Endurance Championship season with Dempsey-Proton Racing and co-drivers Patrick Long and Marco Seefried in the No. 77 Porsche 911 RSR, ended second in the GTE-Am class last weekend.

Porsche has put together the above video chronicling Dempsey’s dream, as the actor-turned-racer hit the high point at a race he’s wanted to do well in for so long.
