‘I also know it is a huge step up…..there are a lot of upgrades. There is certainly more aerodynamic downforce.
‘The breaking capacity is obviously huge compared to the car I’m in now.
‘The ABS and traction control is a lot more advanced and a lot more racer-like.’
Gracie is also well aware the circuit in Adelaide isn’t for the faint-hearted.
She can call on previous experience, having raced at the venue in the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia and the Super2 Series.
In July, a fired up Gracie slammed the male-dominated ‘gentleman’s world’ of motorsports, insisting she wouldn’t be welcomed back to compete at the Bathurst 1000 anytime soon.
Gracie, 28, stepped away from her Supercars dream in 2017 due to a lack of funds and turned her attention to pursuing a career as an adult actress.

Gracie claimed she once earned $500,000 in a month on the subscription platform
She now takes home a huge six-figure salary via the online platform and has recently relaunched her racing career with the GT World Challenge Australia championship.
‘When I left six years ago, it was a male dominated, negative environment towards women and it’s still that way, unfortunately,’ she said.
‘I think it is just a very gentleman’s world, it is run very old school, there are people in there, unfortunately, who won’t change their way and have certain views and things.’
Gracie once claimed she made more than $500,000 in one month through OnlyFans and last year stated she made ‘almost $10million’ online, allowing her to purchase three houses.
