It's not me, really, I was more voicing the opinion of the classic guys that are really against the Tribute because of "the large amount plastic" (their words) that participates. Well, it is a little bit me as well. I do believe that there should be more classics in the Tribute, and frankly I thought 19 GTO's was OTT. It should be limited to a couple of cars of each model, maybe a maximum of 5.
But you know how it goes - Ferrari wants to keep their new clients happy, whilst balancing the exclusiveness of the event. It is quite a tricky thing to do well, I admit that.
Personally, I would never do it in my 458 or 550 or even Boxer, to me the experience is too remote from the Mille Miglia in a modern Ferrari. A classic like my GTC in which you get wet in the rain (windows have to stay open otherwise the windscreen fogs up), you might get boiling clutch fluid, the lights are feeble at night, the steering wheel is big and thin, the tyres are thin and you're sliding at 50km/h, the sound of carburettors, old school gearshift, that all gives you an experience close to driving the Mille Miglia Storica (what some call the 'real' Mille Miglia, although of course it is a regulatory rally now, not a race).
But - that is not to say it is not fantastic in a modern Ferrari, if I only had my 458 I would try to get in.
