Patrick Dempsey as Guest Entrant in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

Patrick Dempsey takes on a new challenge. The Porsche race driver and actor (“Grey’s Anatomy”) will contest the Hockenheim round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup held as support to the Formula 1 race as a guest driver on 21 July. He will pilot the Porsche AG VIP vehicle, a 460 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup which is based on the street-legal 911 GT3. On Tuesday and Wednesday he carried out initial tests on the Hockenheimring.

Patrick Dempsey joined the Porsche motorsport family in 2013. He competes in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship with a Porsche 911 campaigned by his own team, Dempsey Racing. And he plans to return with a Porsche to contest the Le Mans 24 Hours – this time at the wheel of the new 911 RSR.

“It’s a huge honour for me to race in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. This is where you take on the world’s best brand trophy drivers,” says Patrick Dempsey. “I normally tackle endurance events with my teammates. And that’s why I’m particularly excited to compete in an out-and-out sprint race. I’m hoping to pick up a trick or two from the experts here.”

The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is the flagship series of Porsche’s 19 one-make race series that are contested at a national or international level in individual countries and regions. The championship consists of nine rounds run as support to the European Formula 1 Grands Prix, with this year’s finale held at Sochi in Russia.

“Inviting prominent guest drivers is always a tremendous enhancement for our championship,” says Jonas Krauss, Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. “We’ve had many notable drivers in the cockpit over the years including ex-Formula 1 driver Nick Heidfeld, rally legend Sébastien Loeb, and endurance ace Emanuele Pirro. Now we’re looking forward to welcoming Hollywood star Patrick Dempsey.”
