Renee Gracie has made the staggering claim that she made over $500,000 in the month of June after switching from motorsport to adult entertainment.

Gracie stunned the motorsport world in June when she revealed she’d turned her back on driving Supercars 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 claiming she made nothing from seven years as a race car driver, Gracie says she can now pull in around $25,000 a week.

However due to the increased exposure that going public with her story created, the 25-year-old says she made over half a million dollars in the month of June alone.

“I was averaging about $70,000USD a month up until recently when I got a lot of media attention and I had a few stories go viral,” she said in an interview with fellow OnlyFans star Gina Stewart.

“I know the figures but let’s just say I made half a million in the month of June.”

If her subscribers stay loyal she’s well on the way to being a millionaire - if she isn’t already.

Gracie is raking in so much cash that she’s been able to splash out on a $15,000 body transformation.

She revealed how she went under the knife in July for a Brazilian Butt Lift.

“It is the same surgery which Kim Kardashian and a bunch of celebrities have had done,” she told the Daily Telegraph.

“They sucked the fat out of my stomach and put it in my butt.”

Gracie said she hated her body while racing and thought she looked like a boy.

“I have wanted to get it (the surgery) done for a long time,” Gracie said.

“I have had my moments where I have been super fit and trained hard but I still hated my body. Even being lean and having less than 10 per cent body fat I didn’t like the way I looked.

“I looked at myself and thought they I looked like a boy basically. I was never happy with the way I looked and I always knew the body I wanted would not be able to be achieved in the gym.

“I am not one against plastic surgery and I am willing to do whatever it is to make myself happy.”

Renee Gracie considering racing comeback

While Gracie doesn’t plan on making a return to Supercars, she recently said the unexpected windfall from her newfound fandom 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.”

Asked if she would give up her newfound career if forced to choose between adult entertainment and motorsport, Gracie was unequivocal.

“No I won’t stop,” Gracie said. “That’s what is giving me the money to pay for it.”

The 25-year-old told the Daily Telegraph she was eyeing a return in either karting on the Porsche Carrera Cup series.

In June she admitted she understood that going public with her career switch would close 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 US and that is when I realised I could really do something with this.”

Gracie shot to prominence when she partnered Swiss driver Simona de Silvestro at Bathurst in 2015 but struggled to get a real foothold in the sport.

The 25-year-old’s best result in her debut Supercars season was a 12th placed finish where she ended up 18th in the championship standings.
