Gracie Bathurst comeback documentary in the works

STAN has announced the launch of a documentary following controversial former Supercars driver Renee Gracie and her hopes of making a comeback in the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Gracie, 28, has two Great Race starts to her name, having combined with Swiss ace Simona De Silvestro in both 2015 and 2016.

She also spent multiple seasons in Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and the Dunlop Super2 Series before stepping away from motorsport at the end of 2017.

Her time in the spotlight has since revolved around her work in the adult film industry, although Gracie has gone public with plans to return to Supercars’ biggest stage.

Official communications confirm the documentary, which will begin being produced this year, “is an unconventional success story that will follow Renee’s journey back into racing and her intention to re-enter as a wildcard for the iconic Bathurst 1000 race.”

Stan chief content officer Cailah Scobie said: “Our commitment to invest and produce local original documentaries that take a deep dive into Australian contemporary topics and issues can be seen in our upcoming addition to the slate, Revealed: Renee Gracie.

“We can’t wait to work closely with Rush Films to tell Renee’s story and continue our dedication to produce bold, unique and investigative content, not seen on any other platform.”

Added Screen Australia head of documentary Alex West: “We are proud to support the talented writer/directors Frances Elliott and Samantha Marlowe and producer Cody Greenwood, who have a proven track record of crafting engaging documentaries.

“Not only is Revealed: Renee Gracie set to shine a necessary light on gender inequality, stigma and prejudice in sport and beyond, but it shares honest insights into Renee’s empowering origin-turned-comeback story – making for a compelling watch on Stan.”
