Endurance: Dempsey Racing expands Porsche program ahead of 2014 season

Actor Patrick Dempsey' race organization, Dempsey Racing, has revealed its plans ahead of the 2014 season. They include the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the inaugural United SportsCar championship and a customer program in the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge.

The Atlanta outfit also confirmed it would continue working with Porsche, in an "expanded and formalized" relationship, a press release stated.

In 2013, Dempsey himself placed fourth in class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, on top of his many appearances in a TV series called "Grey's Anatomy".

Co-driving his team's 911 GTC Cup car with Andy Lally in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), he also racked up a total of three podium finishes, at Laguna Seca, Austin and Petit Le Mans, the last ALMS race before the merger with Grand-Am.

"We are looking forward to the new season and to many more successful years partnering Porsche," commented Dempsey.
