Renee Gracie’s career switch from Supercars to adult films has made worldwide news, but the former motorsport racer has hit out at Instagram after her photos started to be removed.

Gracie stunned the motorsport world last week when she revealed she’d turned her back on the sport for a career in adult films.

The first woman to compete full-time in the sport, Gracie now has her own website where she sells pictures and movies for a monthly subscription fee.

After admitting she has made a small fortune, Gracie says she can now pull in up to $25,000 a week, the former Supercars driver was getting plenty of attention on Instagram.

Some of her recent content includes uploaded photos of a chandelier tattoo near her boobs. The tattoo has become a trend for social media influencers.

But in a twist, she has hit out at Instagram after she claims the social media platform deleted her photos.

“My photos getting removed is really getting old now,” she wrote with an image of the photo that had been taken down.

Gracie gains global attention

Gracie’s unusual switch from pioneering Australian motorsport racer to X-rated content certainly caught the attention of many.

Understandably the story went bonkers in Australia - but it’s also going global.

News sites in America, the UK and India (just to name a few) have all featured Gracie’s story in recent days.

Total Pro Sports in America ran Gracie’s story on Friday, with Darrelle Lincoln writing: “She claims that her monthly income has shot up from $64,750 to an astonishing $90,650. It’s not hard to see why.”

India Times writer Aishwarya Dharni said: “It takes a lot of courage to go after what you want in life, and Gracie has proved if it’s something that makes you happy then it’s worth it.”

While William Pugh of The Sun in England wrote: “The Australian was the first ever full-time female Supercars racer but has no regrets about leaving her motorsport career to sell X-rated content online.”
