Kayo has also announced that its coverage will include new feature RaceView, which includes three different camera modes. ‘Co-Pilot View’ will put you in the car, while ‘Heli View’ gives you a bird’s eye view of the race, with a ‘Race Centre’ keeping you up to date with the leaderboard and driver stats. You’ll even be able to keep an eye on all three cameras at once thanks to the SplitView feature, meaning you won’t miss any of the big moments.
If the Supercars and RaceView aren’t enough to keep you glued to the couch, Kayo also has coverage of F1, Formula E Championship and the MotoGP, with the Red Bull Air Race also available for those looking for an adrenaline rush.
