Australian racing driver turned x-rated star Renee Gracie has hit out at her former championship for their ‘sex sells’ approach to her career.
The 25-year-old raced at the Bathurst 1000 in 2015 as the first all-female pairing but quit Supercars last year.
Nowadays she can be found making a killing on a channel, where she claims to rake in up to £250,000 a month.
While Gracie was a rare female racer in Supercars, her performances were hardly inspiring and she felt used as a promotional figure.
She told Australia’s Daily Telegraph, via RT: “It’s funny – it’s so contradicting because they sold me as a sex sells, good-looking driver.
“Now I’m in an industry where I make money from my good looks, they want nothing to do with me.
“For years I raced in development series and Supercars wanted to promote that I was a woman racing.
“I was this ‘sex sells’ figure.
They claim to promote women. They want a female so bad, but at the same time, they don’t really.
“They wanted to benefit from it. Now I’m in the industry I am, and I’ve made the change, they want nothing to do with it.
“They claim to promote women. They push it. They want a female so bad, but at the same time, they don’t really.”
