First beta release package

after playing with nant and creating various build targets, I've finally got a mechanism for building a package with documentation etc (although the doc's are still rubbish). You can find the first beta release, #1, here at:


I will try and get round to writing a getting started guide/wiki for the next release, so sorry about the lack of help. However if you refer to the sample code in the help file this should be enough for most to get started. Any other questions, bugs or feedback please message me on the groups.

Implemented the Simulator

Tonight (yes I know it's a Friday) I added functionality for creating a live timing application using recorded data called the LiveTimingSimulator. I've added config for the race at Barcelona and it seems to work quite nicely.

I'm hoping to be able to use this to better aid application development around the library. It's not quite the polished product, but it has everything needed to get going with a new app.



p.s. Last ever British GP .... Come on Lewis!

The source code is up

I've finally got round to migrating the source code over from my private Subversion, and it is now hosted on Google code. Just in time (if you're quick) for the last ever (sic) British Grandprix.


Hopefully this code base (r2) will form the first beta release (Creating a build process is my next job). Also you may notice that there is no imported version history, I decided there was little point in migrating it as there were no significant changes in direction when I developed the current code.

First post

Welcome all...just to introduce myself, I'm a Software consultant working in London and I got bored waiting for somebody else to write a library for me to get the data from the Formula 1 live timing internet service (www.formula1.com/livetiming). So I wrote one :)

I've been developing it now for a couple of weeks privately and have a working (Alpha) version written entirely in C#. I will shortly be uploading the source code for you to download and play with at http://code.google.com/p/f1livetiming/ and hopefully for some of you to contribute towards.

In the mean time, keep an eye out on this blog and also on:
