RENEE GRACIE, who returned to the track after six years out of motorsport, was second slowest in practice. The 28-year-old is driving her striking OnlyFans car in the GT World Challenge Australia series. Gracie has not competed since 2017.
After not making enough money to continue her passion, she decided to quit sports and pursue a career in the adult industry. In an exclusive conversation with SunSport earlier this year, Gracie revealed that she worked in a male environment and struggled financially, prompting her to quit racing in the first place.
As of June 2020, Gracie was making six figures a month due to a career change. But the OnlyFans star has been planning a return to supercar racing from 2021 and confirmed earlier this month that she will return to the Perth Super Sprint.
However, her first day of driving didn’t go exactly as planned. Her Audi R8 LMS Ultra was the second slowest in practice – a car she didn’t drive until Friday’s practice, according to the Herald Sun.
In Friday’s second practice session, Gracie was more than three seconds behind the fastest team. But Gracie wasn’t discouraged by her return to the game. She uploaded a snap of herself sitting on the hood of her car to her Instagram Story with the caption: “Great first day back on track after 6 years!”
Gracie has previously competed in the Bathurst 1000, one of Australia’s biggest races, twice. She’s now racing again and with OnlyFans on her car. Gracie told Australia’s Daily Telegraph ahead of his return to Australia: “OnlyFans are delighted to be racing through the 2023 season and to be part of the Championship and motorsport in general.
“They are increasingly committed to supporting the content creators on their platform with their passion and I look forward to working with them on this journey and am delighted to have reached this level. “I think the car looks amazing , and as we get closer to Perth, it all gets more real. “
