OnlyFans star Renee Gracie's attempts at returning to the racing circuit have been branded by V8 Supercars officials as a 'publicity stunt'.
Renee, who retired from racing in 2017 to become a full-time porn star, made headlines last month when she announced her plans to buy her own racing team and enter the upcoming Bathurst 1000.
However, on Wednesday, PerthNow reported that Renee's big announcement has been derided by event organisers, with one official reportedly telling the paper: 'It's just a publicity stunt'.

'She is just using the sport to sell more videos. It is not even worth commenting on because it is not going to happen,' they added.
