There are lots of former racers out there who ended up switching their racing career paths to something different. If you're not a top-performing driver, sometimes it can be hard to bring in a good chunk of change or secure sponsorship for your team. Former Australian V8 Supercar driver Renee Gracie is among those drivers who moved on from racing. However, she walked away from her racing career for something that I don't think any of us could have predicted.
The 25-year old supercar racer moved to Super2 in 2015, and she was the first female driver to compete full-time in the series since 2001. She wasn't satisfied with her income, stating that she didn't earn a dime while she was driving. It was then that she decided to trade in her motorsports career for a life in the adult film industry. She's been a trending topic since she announced her switch in 2019, but it does seem to have drastically changed her financial position.
The former supercars driver can now be found on OnlyFans, a content subscription site, where she provides pictures and videos to her faithful subscribers. The Daily Telegraph states that Gracie has over 7,000 subscribers. At a monthly subscription rate of $12.95 per month, it's safe to say she's making some good money now compared to her previous career.
Do that math, and you'll find that she makes over $90,000 each month, and over $1 million each year, assuming that her subscribers stay consistent.
While moving into the adult industry isn't the easiest thing to explain to your fans or the racing community, it sure does seem to be paying off quite well for this Aussie. She even told News Corp Australia that it was "the best thing I have done my whole life."
She claims that she doesn't care what people have to say about it, because it's working out well for her. Additionally, she adds onto her comments, saying, "I'm here to make money. I'm going to milk it as long as I can."
Hey, she's a gorgeous woman, so why not capitalize on it?
Believe it or not, OnlyFans has grabbed the attention of lots of women in the world today. It allows them to have a career in the adult industry, without having to do things the same way they've been done for many years. Having an account on this site allows women to have and run their own business, in any way that they would like to, and without anyone else as a middle man.
While it was unsuspecting for some, I can't say I blame Gracie for doing what she did. Judging by the amount of money she's bringing in, it's clear that she is completely satisfied with her career move.
