Patrick Dempsey Racing Ready for 2014 Le Mans
Le MANS, France – After nearly four full days of pre-race promotion and traditional Le Mans pageantry, Patrick Dempsey Racing is ready for Le mans. Driver Patrick Dempsey, Joe Foster and Patrick Long have finally taken to Circuit de la Sarthe today in the No. 77 Patrick Dempsey Racing – Proton Porsche 911 RSR in preparation for this weekend’s 82nd edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 14 – 15.
Patrick Dempsey Racing has once again partnered with top German Porsche team Proton Competition for this weekend’s race after a successful initial effort last year. This will be the third time that Dempsey, the popular Hollywood actor who has also been racing sports cars for nearly a decade, has raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“Everything just leading up to the Le Mans race is like an event in itself, the downtown scrutineering, the autograph session, the ongoing interaction with amazing fans here,” Dempsey said. “It is energizing and all-consuming at the same time, so it is always good to finally drive, finally get started in our Porsche in practice and tonight’s qualifying. It is all just an amazing and incredible experience and so happy to just have the chance to be back here again.”
