Is there such a thing as a website that lists all the motorsport on British TV? My searches haven't yielded anything useful yet.

As I only have freeview, my only opportunities to watch anything that is shown live on Sky or Eurosport (eg WTCC) are the highlights programmes tucked away at odd times channels such as Five or ITV4.

Most of the time I only find motorsport programmes by accident as they are on at odd times - so it would be very useful to have a comprehensive list.

Thanks!

www.motorstv.co.uk if you can get motors tv

However I find that some of the programes are still on at strange times like the middle of the night.

I like to try and find out when the latest round of F3, Formula Ford & FPA will be on but I struggle. Luckily I have sky plus so just record it whenever I see it on but at the time of recording I never know if it is the latest round or another repeat of the last round or in the case of FPA is it race 1,2 or 3 as the description is never tells you.

I think you will find that the stuff on in the middle of the night will be repeats of something that has been on before.First showings tend to be mid-evening.
Best listing I have found is 'Autosport' Radio Times only lists Sky & Eurosport-Now also ESPN-but I would not bother with them

I saw that one - it only seems to list live sport as far as I can see?

As I only have freeview I'm having to make do with the repeated highlights programmes - for example there is a half hour WTCC highlights programme on ITV4 a week after the actual race.

I try to set my PVR to record all instances of a particular programme but it is hit and miss whether it records them all as the races are so irregular.

One option it to download the raw tv listings from the Radio Times and write your own programme/script to parse it for any motorsport related keywords. I've done something along those lines but it's a mess and not easy to share. The raw data is available from http://xmltv.radiotimes.com/xmltv/
