Patrick Dempsey: Off to the Races

at . Comments

Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey showed off his handsomeness, er, atuo racing stills at the Rolex Grand-Am Series Brumos Porsche 250 at Daytona International Speedway at Daytona Beach, Florida on Thursday afternoon.

Patrick Dempsey, 42, has been racing in his No. 40 Hyper Sport Mazda RX-8 and loving it, saying, “It allows the athletic side of my nature to come out. It’s such a nice departure from Los Angeles and Hollywood."

Off to the Races

The racing enthusiast actually likens his hobby to Grey's Anatomy.

“The situational awareness is basically the same,” Patrick Dempsey said.

“In acting, you have to be aware of the camera. You have to have a sense of situational awareness, of what’s going on in front of you, what’s going on in behind you. There’s aggression and you have to be in control.”

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
