Renee Gracie has revealed her plans to buy her own Supercars team using the money she's made from OnlyFans after walking away from motorsport.

Gracie shocked the motorsport world last year when she revealed she'd turned her back on racing to pursue a career in X-rated content.

The 26-year-old said a lack of funding in Supercars was behind her decision, with OnlyFans providing a much more lucrative career.

Gracie said she made over $500,000 in her first month on the subscription website, which charges fans a monthly fee for X-rated content.

Her earnings have since skyrocketed into the millions, with Gracie revealing she wants to spend $1 million to get back into Supercars.

“I am looking to buy my own team,” Gracie told the Daily Telegraph. “I get offers every second day to go and race in somebody else’s car.

“There are lots of opportunities and options keeping the hope and the dream alive, but I would like to do it myself.”

Gracie is eyeing a return to Mount Panorama for the Bathurst 1000, where she became the first female driver in the showpiece event in 2015 alongside Simona de Silvestro.

“I don’t think anyone in Australia would be able to generate the interest that I would attract,” she said.

Renee Gracie's staggering earnings after career switch

Last year Gracie said the unexpected windfall from her newfound fame had enabled her to race without the constant financial pressure that initially forced her from the sport.

“I now have the financial security to get back into it,” she said.

“I can now afford to go racing without worrying about crashing the car. I won’t be reliant on sponsorships.”

She previously admitted that going public with her X-rated career switch might have closed the door to any future return to Supercars.

“I didn’t go into this blind,” Gracie said.

“I mean I had no idea it would be where it is today but I did a lot of research before I did it. 

"I understood what was involved. I knew things would be leaked, I knew it would be controversial, I knew all of that.

“I did all the research and made the decision to do it. In my first six days I made $24,000 and that is when I realised I could really do something with this.”

Gracie shot to prominence when she partnered Swiss driver De Silvestro at Bathurst in 2015 and 2016, the all-female pair finishing 21st in their first attempt and 14th the year after.

However Gracie struggled to get a stranglehold in the sport and ended up quitting after the 2017 season.

Her best result in her debut Supercars season was a 12th-placed finish, ending up 18th in the championship standings.
