If you tuned into ABC this morning, August 25, you may have experienced a sudden blast of heat: The oh-so-dreamy Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherdhit up Good Morning America to hype Grey's Anatomy's 10th season and his miniseries Patrick Dempsey: Racing Le Mans.

On the topic of Grey's, Patrick enthused, "It's pretty remarkable. We just started our 200th episode last week. And we're all sort of mystified at the success of it and very grateful, too. It's been quite a ride."

And speaking of rides, the conversation shifted to his other profession:

"I love racing, absolutely," Patrick raved. "It's my passion. I love acting, as well, but it's a different experience. You can't really compare the two."

Patrick reminded all of us McDreamy worshippers that his four-part miniseries premieres this Wednesday, Aug. 28, at 10 p.m. ET on Velocity, Discovery's car-centric channel.

He also joined the GMA hosts in an impromptu race… albeit of the miniature, remote-controlled variety! The showdown was full of twists and turns, as you'll see in the clip below!

Will you be tuning in to watch Patrick tackle the 24-hour race in Le Mans? Sound off below!
