Cameras followed the actor/driver Patrick Dempsey throughout his journey that concluded with a fourth place in LM GTE Am at the finish of the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2013. The star of Grey's Anatomy, had already come to La Sarthe in 2009 in support of the French organisation Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque – Enfants du monde, who fund surgery for children with heart problems all over the world, but he has always had the desire to return to Le Mans.

The first episode shows how Patrick Dempsey at the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Dempsey Del Piero-Proton (in association with Proton, showing that that the actor did not come to France to make up the numbers). The documentary shows Dempsey balancing his schedule to continue both his acting and driving careers. Finally, in the last episode he explores why humans have a competitive instinct. The last three episodes will be aired every Wednesday at 22:00 on Velocity channel only.
