- Renee Gracie is getting ready to make a dramatic comeback to racing
- She was a Supercars racer
- She ditched racing for acting in adult movies and launched her company OnlyFans
Six years after leaving Supercars to work in the adult film industry, Renee Gracie is getting ready to make a dramatic comeback to the scene.
Gracie gave up her dreams of racing in which was the time dogged by financial constraints and ventured into making adult content as an actress.
She distributed the content to exclusive members on OnlyFans but she has now reconsidered her decision.
However, the 28-year-old will compete in Perth’s GT World Challenge Australia championship, which will accompany the Perth SuperSprint at Wanneroo.
She will be driving an Audi with the OnlyFans logo on it. Her car displays QR codes that are likely connected to her online profile and is painted in OnlyFans’ signature white and blue hues from fender to roof.
News Corp, however, has stated that the QR codes won’t be present on the vehicle during the Perth event.
Gracie in an interview with Speedcafe said that her comeback is courtesy of a well-meaning sponsor.
“I’ve got a serious sponsor. Obviously OnlyFans have come onboard and sponsor me for the full season and they obviously see the potential and the opportunity,” she said.
“They want to help me get back into something that I loved doing and for them to be part of the process… they’re just over the moon to be involved in something like this.”
She terms having these sponsors as exciting and she is optimistic that they will together in exploring other opportunities that may crop up.
Eager fans waited for her to sit behind the wheel but she said that she will only be driving when she gets to Perth. She was swamped organizing the whole event and she barely had time for a test.
Gracie, in 2020, asserted that she earned more than $500,000 in a single month from OnlyFans, and she even considered starting her own Bathurst 1000 team.
She moved from go-karts to the Porsche Carrera Cup in 2013 and also participated in the Bathurst 1000 twice after that. Before joining the Supercars Dunlop Series, she competed there for two seasons.
Returning to Perth gives her a nostalgic feeling since she last raced in 2016. She did a lot of races in different circuits which gives her an upper hand in winning the competition.
She is an Australian, born in Brisbane but raised in Kuraby, located in Brisbane’s southern periphery. She spent her entire childhood attending John Paul College before moving with her family to the Gold Coast’s northern suburbs when she was a teenager.
Following a successful career in kart racing, Gracie competed in the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship in 2014 and 2015.
She was the first female driver to participate in that championship in 2013. She finished every race with a perfect record, placing five times in the top 10 in 2014
Gracie became the first full-time female racer in 14 years for Supercars Dunlop Series in 2015 and raced for Paul Morris Motorsport.
She made headlines in 2021 when she spent money from her OnlyFans job to buy a 1.5-acre Gold Coast mansion for $1.3 million AUD.
