I hear ya, its a bit disappointing that they seem to have really reduced down the value you get - For me and my wife its mainly a chance to spend some time together with the Ferrari (My other woman)
I won't tell her
something tells me, it's ok
which is worth the fee alone - however, if things do not improve I have to say this may be the last one I attend... I've been to every event held up there and each year it seems to get smaller, less well attended and with a lot fewer cars - I'd really like to see more investment from Ferrari into US owners, I think I'll contact them about it
Last year was rainy, cold and a bit off too. If not for our wine and others there, it would have been over. This year seems to be in the 70's which makes it nicer.
Guess they are beefing up the stops more in budding countries. I read this morning that China is almost overtaking all countries in luxury car market. Rolls feels it will overtake British local sales this year. Guess we could have an Infineon[dubai-ous]World center....linked to Africa USA: Flipper jumps a 599...that' I would like to see.
Like you say, every year it goes down just a bit more:

Jury is still out, it'll depend on how enthusiastic we are...I understand your needs to satisfy both gals
but, we live here and, well, not sure...always looking for an excuse to drive far and away, which usually is Sacro-tomato
