The highly-anticipated, four-part series ‘ Patrick Dempsey Racing Le Mans ‘ premiered last night, Wednesday, August 28, at 10 p.m. (EDT/PDT) on the Discovery Channel and Velocity, Discovery’s high-octane network.
The documentary focuses on Patrick Dempsey taking his place alongside iconic Hollywood race car drivers Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and James Garner as well as the team’s tireless efforts on and off the track in preparing for this past June’s successful return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“Racing is my true passion, and taking on Le Mans is the biggest challenge of my life so far,” Patrick Dempsey said. “Le Mans pushes both driver and machine to the absolute brink, testing focus, skill and endurance unlike any other event in the world. Just getting to Le Mans is almost as challenging as the race itself. This project reflects a 360-degree view of the entire race process – including all the ups and downs along the way.”
