Dempsey Racing is returning with top German Porsche team Proton Competition.

Factory Porsche driver Patrick Long is no stranger to the pages of GRM. He has helped us with articles and is just a nice guy. Joe Foster is also one of us. Patrick Dempsey? Well, he’s the dreamiest. Once again, the three of them will tackle Le Mans after a fourth-place finish last year.

Dempsey Racing is returning with top German Porsche team Proton Competition for next month’s race after a seamless and highly-successful initial effort together last year at Circuit de la Sarthe. The all-American trio of Dempsey, Foster and Long will again carry No. 77 on their new Type 991-based Dempsey Racing-Proton Porsche 911 RSR built to GTE-AM regulations.

If I had the chance, it would be interesting to ask how long they think it would take them to:

Joe to equal Patrick Long's lap times Patrick to equal Joe's lap times.

IIRC, last year, both were about 4 seconds off. What does it take to be skilled and improve that much?
