See if you can get the neighbours to undertake their own mad Friday down the street with burnouts and the usual water balloons and bottles filled with suspicious contents.

Then during the night get people to rev their cars next to your tent, launch fireworks and start huge fires. Make sure you flood the garden with water to make it really authentic.

You could get some "travellers" to pop round and have a good scavenge around your garden when the race has finished!

You could try eating lots of bread, chicken and chips until you're really constipated. Then try pushing it out over a hole in the floor of your shed (make it smell of wee first).

Also whenever your missus trys speaking to you tell her its very noisy and that you need to preserve battery.

You will also need a toilet roll that has been slightly soaked so that all the roll sticks together, don't forget to get some old shower curtains with a few of the hooks missing and of course make sure you have nowhere to hang your clothes when taking said shower. And make sure the water is lukewarm or cold.

Do not put any beer in the fridge, it should be warm all weekend especially if drinking stella or 1664.

Do not forget to also eat plenty of red spicy sausages. Breaking your mobile phone or giving it to some Travelers over the weekend will also improve the experience for you
If you do make a brew make sure you use UHT longlife milk or creamer.
Finally, nip out and drive past a few speed cameras so you end up with a 750 euro fine.

If you give us your address we could arrange for a police helicopter to keep circling over your garden to add to the constant circuit noise as it follows the lead cars biggrin

Stand outside your bathroom door holding a towel for 40 minutes before showering.

If you intend to camp outside make sure you also get the special blow up mattress ( the one with the hole in it that ends up flat every morning).

Invite a friend that doesn't know much about motorsport. Talk about how good its going to be for the entirety of the week beforehand, then on the big day take yourself off into the woods for 4 hours so you don't see him.

live close to a sea and rescue naval base in the west of scotland ... so that should be easy to arrange - at least something similar

After eating said red spicy sausages make sure you go to a loo with no toilet roll. Then crack on with the socks. I won’t go there...

Get a few wheelie bins full of empty Stella or Bier 33 bottles and a tube of clear silicone sealant and have fun building a bottle sculpture or pyramid biggrin Then fall into it in the early hours of the morning shouting as loud as possible to wake any neighbours up.

Oh and don't forget to fire up a few Chinese Lanterns and set fire to your neighbors shed or car roof biggrin

Don't drink any bottled water so that you wake up in the morning totally dehydrated.
