Female Australian Supercar Driver Renee Gracie Launches Adult Film Star Career
| Last updated
Renee Gracie made waves throughout the racing industry when she became Australia's first full-time female Supercar competitor in 14 years, according to Fox Sports.
In 2015, she partnered with Simona de Silvestro in a Ford FG X Falcon for the Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar race, which was the first all female pairing since Melinda Price and Kerryn Brewer in 1998.
After a string of poor results in 2017 and a difficulty in finding funding, Gracie was replaced with another driver.
Looking for a new career, the 25-year-old was making some coin at a local car yard when she discovered OnlyFans.
The subscriber based website, which allows content creators to make X-rated content for people for a fee, seemed pretty attractive to Gracie and she decided to become an adult film star.
In her first week, she made $3,000. Let that sink in for a second.
After amassing more than 2,800 loyal followers, the 25-year-old is now making around $25,000 a week selling videos and images of X-rated material.
She says that her dad is surprisingly proud of her because she's become financially stable through the website and so can look after herself for years to come. Her dad sees it more as what she has achieved, rather than what she does.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Renee said: "I pretty much do everything. I do whatever it is people request. I sell those photos and people tip me. I have been able to pay for a house. I have a 30-year loan that I am about to pay off in 12 months."
She explained that ditching her racing career was tough, but it had to happen because she wasn't getting results.
"I got over it and realised I wasn't good enough and moved on. I was then selling cars at a car yard, busting my arse, and a couple of fans suggested I do OnlyFans and it started from there," she added.
"I have no interest in going back. Racing cars in my eyes is not the pinnacle of what I have done. What I am doing right now, I would rather do than race around Bathurst."
Renee claims she earned virtually nothing while she was in the Supercars scene and now she's making boatloads of cash every day.
Credit where credit is due. Making that amount of money every day is pretty impressive.
