Renee Gracie is making a return to Supercars after a drastic career U-turn.
Gracie's name made headlines at the start of the 2020 season when he walked out on the sport to pursue a career as an adult performer.
Now, though, it appears the 25-year-old is itching to get back in the driver's seat - and she's planning on using the money she's made from her OnlyFans success to fund her return.
It's understood Gracie was earning around $25,000 a week during her short stint as an adult performer.
She now plans on putting that money towards starting her own race team, which she hopes can can compete in the Supercars format some day.
"I now have the financial security to get back into it," Gracie told The Daily Telegraph.
"I can now afford to go racing without worrying about crashing the car. I can do it and afford to do it. I can go racing and not have to worry about a budget. I won't be reliant on sponsorships."
But while she certainly has the funding to get back on the track, Gracie thinks the Supercars community won't be so welcoming after her growing publicity as an adult film star.
Speaking to News Corp, she said: "I don't think they would want me back.
"The pressure I was under in the last couple of years was immense and I don't really want to put myself through that.
"I don't need that pressure because I have a career outside racing now. I will be doing it for enjoyment and fun.
"I have been watching the races and keeping up to date with it.
"I want to do it again because now I can do it on my own and I can afford to enjoy it."
