Whoa Derrick posted. Haven't seen you around in a long while. You just been lurking?

That is a huge weight drop. I wonder what they did besides removing all the interior and sound deadening material.

thats awesome!

I actually saw a racing special on TV not too long ago, and he was in it talking about how sick mazdas are and that there is nothing else that sounds like a mazda... and you know when the mazda is coming.. I think it was an RX8 he was driving at the time.

Patrick Dempsey has his own Mazda racing team: Dempsey Racing, which competes in the Rolex series.

He drove one of the RX8s on his team in the Rolex 24 at Daytona earlier this year. Truly a driving and team enthusiast, though his teammates are consistently quicker behind the wheel.

It's kinda funny, cause "McDreamy" has sparked interest in auto racing with a lot of females who normally wouldn't be due to his role on Grey's Anatomy.

I saw Dempsey and his team race at Mid-Ohio last year. If I remember right they finished 6th in the GT class.

I respect him for his commitment and support of racing.....he's not just some actor with enough money to play around in a race car.....he's been paying his dues for several years now....some of you older guys may remember another very, very good race car driver who did a little acting on the side.....his name was Paul Newman.....
