What is Kayo’s RaceView feature and how does it work?
Digital streaming service Kayo Sports is out to deliver for revheads at this weekend's Bathurst 1000. Kayo has announced a stack of special features for the weekend. This is highlighted by the special enhanced RaceView, which will offer viewers their own unique customisable coverage of the race weekend.
Kayo Sports will broadcast the Bathurst 1000 over all 4 days. This will include live coverage of every practice session, all qualifying, Top 10 Shootout and the entire race ad-free. The RaceView function is sure to have motorsport fans buzzing.

To start off with our breakdown there'll be four camera angles available to watch at once, plus another six live bonus feeds on race day. Then there's the Race Centre Channel, which sounds similar to Kayo's existing Interactive Stats. Viewers will be able to see all the essential stats, special data and leaderboards live during the race.
The crème de la crème though is both the Heli-Cam Channel and the Ford or Holden Co-Pilot Cams. Yes that's right, Kayo is giving you the power to watch the iconic race from a helicopter. With this you'll be sure to see Mount Panorama in a way you never have before.
The special Ford and Holden Co-Pilot Cams are also going to be crazy. Kayo is calling on Supercars fans to go tribal this weekend and given the fact it's Holden's last offical race in the Championship there's no better time for it.
A new edition for 2020 is the Super SloMo Channel, which is fairly self-explanatory. There will be cameras set up around the track so you can see just how hard the cars work across the top of Skyline or how tight it is through The Cutting.
These cameras will allow you to rotate through the two manufacturers' drivers and cars across qualifying, Top 10 Shootout and the entire race. You can get a glimpse of RaceView in our video below.

How to watch with Kayo Sports
Not only does Kayo Sports broadcast every single race of the V8 supercars live, it also has the entire F1 and MotoGP seasons. Plus we haven't even made mention to the other 50 sports available or that there's a 14-day free trial.
Kayo Sports is a subscription service with two offerings. The first is the Basic subscription, which you can watch on 2 different devices at once and it costs $25 a month. Then there's the Premium package which sets you back $35 a month, though this gives you 3 simultaneous streams.
Other than the special RaceView features, Kayo also has a few more. A favourite of sports lovers is SplitView where you have the ability to stream four sports or shows at once. This is perfect for the race this Sunday as it overlaps with the Bledisloe Cup and UFC.
There's also a Key Moments timeline, Kayo Minis, Interactive Stats and No Spoilers function. You can see the full list of features here. The platform is compatible with Android, iOS, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Android TV and Samsung TV (2017 or later), Sony Bravia TVs, Mac and PC as well as Chromecast or AirPlay.
Kayo even has a dedicated Bathurst channel this weekend. You'll be able to watch a bunch of classic races, featured pieces and interviews on demand. In fact Kayo has condensed every Bathurst 1000 race from 2019 to 1997 into an under 2-hour highlights package.
