Former Supercars driver Renee Gracie has criticized the sport for its attitude towards women drivers and fears that no one will follow in her footsteps for years to come.
On the eve of the season finale on iconic Mount Panorama, Gracie says the treatment she received throughout her driving career and post exemplifies the hypocrisy of a sport designed to support women.
“I drove in development series for years and Supercars wanted to advertise that I was a woman who drives,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
“I was that“ sex sold ”figure. They wanted to benefit from it.
“Now I’m in the industry that I am and I’ve made the change. They don’t want anything to do with it.

“It’s funny, it’s so contradicting because they sold me as ‘sex sold good looking driver’ and now I’m in an industry where I make money off of my good looks they don’t want anything to do with me.
“They claim to promote women. You push it. They want a woman so badly but at the same time they don’t really do it.
“There are people in supercars with old school mentalities. It’s 2020, some things need to change.

“It’s a tough industry for women and I don’t think we’ll see a female driver for long.”
Gracie started her supercars career in 2015 at Paul Morris Motorsport. Their arrival on the grid ended a 14-year driver break.
Later that year, she teamed up with Simona de Silvestro to become the first female pairing since Melinda Price and Kerryn Brewer in 1998. They finished 21st in Bathurst.
Twelve months later, the duo moved from 26th place on the grid to 14th place.
