Former Supercars racer Renee Gracie has shocked the entire sporting fraternity by deciding to quit motorsports and join the adult film industry instead. Renee Gracie was the first woman to compete full-time in V8 Supercars.
Brisbane-born Renee Gracie revealed in a recent interview that she decided to turn to pornography to earn money and said that it is the “best decision” she has made till date.
“I wasn’t getting the results and couldn’t get the funding. I tried to do my best but it got to a point where my dream vanished.
“It has been the best thing I have done in my whole life. It has put me in a financial position I could never have dreamt of and I really enjoy it.
“I am fine with whatever they want to call me. I am earning good money and I am comfortable with where I am at,” Gracie told the Daily Telegraph.
Gracie’s fan site has seen an increase of over 5000 people since she gave the interview and it went public last week. She is raking in over $90,000 every month now by selling her videos and pictures on the adult subscription website onlyfans.com.
“I didn’t go into this blind. I mean I had no idea it would be where it is today, but I did a lot of research before I did it. I understood what was involved.
“I knew things would be leaked, I knew it would be controversial, I knew all of that. I did all the research and made the decision to do it.
“In my first six days I made 24,000 US and that is when I realised I could really do something with this,” Renee Gracie said.
Supercars meanwhile, have released a statement saying that they are aware of Gracie’s move and the subsequent interview, making it clear that the sport now has nothing to do with the former racer.
“Supercars is aware of the article regarding former Super2 driver Renee Gracie. As Ms Gracie is no longer competing in Super2, Supercars will not be commenting further,” a spokesman said.
