Renee Gracie says that she is excited to make her official return to motorsport in Round 2 of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS at Wanneroo Raceway next weekend.
Gracie will compete in an Audi R8 LMS GT3 Ultra in a much-anticipated return to the race track.
The former racer turned adult content creator will compete in the privately-run Audi with support from fellow GT competitor Mark Griffith, who himself races a Mercedes AMG.
Gracie’s car will feature backing from OnlyFans, the adult subscription website that she has become popular on in the past few years.
Her entry will contest the GT Trophy category at Round 2 in Perth, as well as the remaining rounds of 2023.
Gracie is no stranger to top-level motorsport, having previously raced in Paynter Dixon Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, Super2 and two Bathurst 1000 starts alongside Simona De Silvestro.
Gracie will form part of an exciting field of exotic brands and models forming a strong field of contenders in GT racing’s first trip to Western Australia in a number of years. Two practice sessions will be held on Friday, qualifying and Race 1 on Saturday followed by Race 2 on Sunday. Both races will be contested over one hour.
The race event at Wanneroo will be held alongside the Supercars Championship on April 28-30.

“We’ve purchased the Audi to run for the season,” said Gracie.
“There’s a lot going through my mind, it’s been quite a big effort to get here to say the least. There have been a lot of moving parts in the background to make this happen.
“Obviously, I’ve got all the Stan documentary stuff on the side, and I pitched to OnlyFans a few months ago about being potentially involved in my return to racing and they were hugely interested. It was back and forth in discussions with them to come onboard as a major sponsor, but to have an OnlyFans car running around is really exciting.
“When people think of OnlyFans they think of me, so why not have it on the car?
“It was a big, big job to get it this far and I’m sure it’s going to be an even bigger year. There’s lots of excitement, lots of people involved to get it here, which I’m very grateful for.
“I’m so excited and I can’t believe we pulled it off and that we are going to Perth. I can’t believe we’ve finally done it and we’re going to be there.”
