So I've been using XBMC for a while now for my movies and TV Shows.
As of late I've really been getting into Formula 1 racing.
Unfortunately I've found that theTVDB.org does not allow sports content.
Disheartening as that may be I decided to simply create my own content.
I will admit I did have a hell of a time getting the NFO's and videos to show up correctly in XBMC but after a while I got the hang of it.
I also made some thumbnails and banner icons; this too took considerable effort since I was very unfamiliar with GIMP.
So, in an effort to save some of you a little trouble and to make my small contribution to the XBMC effort I've decided to start this collaborative thread for Formula 1 racing.
Hopefully with your assistance this thread can have some really great content!

Thumbnails: (I used to use these, now I use Juanflaco's thumbs.)

Example - Abu Dhabi Thumbnail:

Abu Dhabi
Australia
Bahrain
Belgium
Brazil
Britain
China
Europe
Germany
Hungary
India
Italy
Japan
Korea
Malaysia
Monaco
Singapore
Spain
Turkey


We have since gained two sets of much nicer thumbs courtesy of Juanflaco:

And here's an example of the other set he's creating:

Yeah, that's next on my list.
New season is only two weeks out!

Also, I've been trying to find pre-race blurbs to put into the race nfo's.
Something like:

"So-and-so leads in the points but this guy and that guy are hot on his heels.
This race could make or break several teams, and so on and so forth......"

I checked f1.com but couldn't find anything.
Anyone have any ideas?

I recall a co-worker of mine having an iPhone app that showed real time track positions and F1 info. Maybe you can port or duplicate some of the code used with it.

Well, I'm guessing these will only be going into your library once the race is finished, right?
You could always do the notes yourself (helped along by an EPG or something, they're usually not bad for that sort of thing) as the season progresses, maybe even post them here after.

Or were you looking for something you could scrape?

I don't get exactly what these are for. Are you ripping the races and using them in XBMC as a TV show?

Correct!
thetvdb does not allow sports so the scraper doesn't work.
So, I had to do it manually and I thought I'd share my work.
