Renee Gracie’s motorsport career was at a crossroads in 2017.
After only 25 years of first shot at Supercars notoriety as a member of the first female duo to take on Mt Panorama in 2015, Gracie’s career has not been successful since then.

She and Simona de Silvestro finished 18th in this historic Bathurst 1000, followed by an impressive 14th place a year later.
But the first full-time Supercars contestant had a hard time getting sponsors together.
A 2017 campaign in the Super2 series brought little – more or less Gracie out of the sport.
This series would be her last as a professional driver – and while her dream may not have turned out as he hoped it would, Gracie says that thanks to her new career in adult entertainment, she’s no longer missing out on racing.
“It was the best thing I’ve done in my entire life,” Gracie told News Corp Australia.
“It has put me in a financial position that I could never have dreamed of, and I’m really enjoying it.
“I’m fine with what they want to call me. I make good money and feel good where I am.”

Despite a promising early career, Gracie said it was a relief to stop chasing sponsorship money to get onto the starting line-up and instead focus on her own goals.
“I didn’t get the results and couldn’t get funding,” Gracie said.
“I tried to do my best but it got to a point where my dream went away.”
After spending time in a truck stop, Gracie decided to start her new career – and it’s unlikely she will look back anytime soon.
