Patrick Dempsey is set to showcase his passion for cars in a new TV documentary series about the famous Le Mans 24-hour competition.

The 'Grey's Anatomy' star has his own professional car racing team, Dempsey Racing, and will be among the drivers taking part in the gruelling 24 Heures du Mans car contest in Le Mans, France next year, the Daily Express reported.

Dempsey, 46, has now revealed that he will be making a TV series about the challenges his team faces as he prepares for the endurance-testing event.

The actor, who came ninth in the same competition in 2009, will document his efforts in a four-part series called 'Road to Le Mans', which will air on America's Velocity channel in 2013. (ANI)
