From McDreamy to McSpeedy!

Patrick Dempsey is revving up for Wednesday’s episode of Car Matchmaker with an exclusive sneak peek in which the Grey’s Anatomy alum and racing aficionado zooms around a track at high speed – all while remaining cool and calm as Dr. Derek Shepherd in the OR.

It’s no secret that the 49-year-old actor has a passion for racing cars. Last month, Dempsey earned second place at the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours in France.

Dempsey’s just the latest gearhead to appear on Car Matchmaker, which sees former Seinfeld writer and talk show host Spike Feresten using his automotive expertise to pair up one lucky guy with three different cars.

But Feresten, standing at the end of the course, probably wanted to hit the brakes on this particular segment when Dempsey comes barreling at him full-throttle. Watch above to see McSpeedy’s thrilling (and chilling) display of control.

Car Matchmaker airs on Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Esquire Network.
