Former “Grey’s Anatomy” Star Finishes Second at Les Mans

Former Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey finished second at Le Mans on Sunday.

Dempsey’s character, Dr. Derrick Shepard (fondly known as “McDreamy” to fans), might have been killed off in an auto accident on the popular drama this Spring, but the actor made headlines for his own professional driving skills this past weekend.

According to Crystal Hunt, The Dempsey-Proton team finished second in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in the GTE Amateur category. The team consists of Dempsey and his co-drivers, Patrick Long and Marco Seefried.

“I think it’s hard to put into words how much it means to be on the podium in Le Mans.
Phenomenal effort and support from Porsche,” said an emotional Dempsey, according to The Washington Post. “It’s an amazing accomplishment, you always dream about moments like this. I’ve worked really hard over the last three years to make this happen and I’m here. Vive la France!”
