Patrick Dempsey Revs Some Engines

Patrick Dempsey was in Le Mans, France yesterday to practice for the city's annual 24 Hour race this Saturday. He and two teammates plan to compete in the marathon competition tomorrow, with the goal of raising money for children born with heart defects. Patrick usually fits his need for speed into his work schedule when he's filming Grey's Anatomy, but now that his show's on hiatus until next season he's even more able to dedicate himself to the track.
