Patrick Dempsey Discusses the Prospect of Taking Up Car Racing Full Time

Patrick Dempsey takes a sip of smoothie after making a stop at a grocery store on Wednesday (July 30) in Los Angeles.

The 48-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actor recently discussed the prospect of taking on car racing full time.

“I think the level that I’m racing at, it needs a full commitment, and on the physical level you need to train properly. You need to be in the car….You need to be training all the time at this level,” Patrick told the New York Times. “It’s becoming a job now, but a job that I love. It’s a passion. It’s a different thing to do. I think it depends — like in acting — what the material is and who the director is, if it’s someone who’s going to bring something out of me. It’s like an engineer: With some engineers you have a chemistry that allows you to find something in yourself that gets that little bit more speed out of the car — and the same goes for a director. And with a car, if you’re in a Porsche you’re driving differently. If you’re in a movie with a Quentin Tarantino or someone like that, there’s material there that equates itself to an automobile: One car runs faster, one movie does better.”

FYI: Patrick is wearing Levi’s jeans.
