Australian Racer Cashes in on New career
Former V8 Supercars racer Renee Gracie has received a significant financial windfall since going public with her new career in pornography. During an interview Gracie revealed she walked away from the sport without earning a cent, and after working in an auto shop she decided to cash in on her good looks by joining adult subscription website.
Now 25, Gracie is making bank as an adult entertainer, selling photographs and videos for $9 a month.The Daily Telegraph reported over 5,000 people have subscribed to Gracie’s site since the story broke on Friday, meaning she has made an extra $45,000 in three days.In total, Gracie reportedly boasts 7,000 subscribers, meaning the former racer now makes $63,000 every month, or $756,000 per year, assuming the subscribers all stick around.
“It has been the best thing I have done in my whole life,” Gracie told News Corp Australia. “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 started making waves on the karting circuit as a teenager and had enough talent to be handed a start at Bathurst in 2015, where she partnered Simona de Silvestro in a historic moment for women’s sports.
She became the first Aussie woman to compete full-time in the sport and was popular around the track. But it didn’t last, and after finishing 14th up Mt Panorama in 2016, she was replaced as de Silvestro’s partner.
Gracie said.“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,”
