Try my work, maybe you'll like it I have each race session as season and several practice, qualifications and race files inside them.

Looks real good and organized. I tried incorporating it in and I still can't get XBMC to pick it up under tv shows. I am going to try a few other things.

Currently I have Formula 1 as it's own tab on the home menu. Everything is importing except the info. I am making progress and have been reading across these forums non stop for a few days now. When doing home theater related things, never tell your wife what you are working on. She is telling me that this has been sucking me in since day 1 lol.

Is it possible to create a scraper for Formula 1?
- ralts - 2011-07-08 22:27
It is very much possible to create a scraper for Formula 1 and other sports. It very much would be like tvdb.com being copy-pasted with their style of api, but only hosting tvshows that are sports events.
That is theoretically possible. Pratically, who pays the price in time and money to create it?
Although it is partially powerful, custom nfo's do a really good job of storing info that a web-scraper can provide.

Anyone have the files for the next 10 or so races? The initial download that I got only had up to the German GP.
