American actor Patrick Dempsey first joined forces with German team Proton Competition in 2015. They soon proved to be a powerful combination, finishing second in class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans that year. In 2018, Campbell, Ried and Andlauer gave the team its first LMGTE Am class win.
Team goals for the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans
The team are back for the 87th running of the race and the #77 Porsche 911 RSR is the favourite to retain the title. The sister cars #88 and #99 will be first and foremost aiming to finish the race and score a satisfying result. Worth noting – the presence of the oldest driver at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year, 64-year-old Tracy Krohn, at the wheel of the #99 car.
