Motegi race thread ***will contain spoilers***

Soon it is time for the annual Japan race. Separate sections for each company filled with troopers holding the designated signs to the cameras at exactly the right time. Early mornings, for us euros at least, and in my mind a quite boring track.
At least we will get to see the 250s this time..

Rossi can and most probabaly will win his eight tile, he needs to be on the podium in order to win teh title if Stoner win sthe race.

So who will win it an dwho will bin it? Rossi has only one win at Motegi, way back in 2001, and his record at that track is not too impressive. Breidgestone seems to be th etyre of choice since even Tamada has managed to win there, and Kawasaki get on the podium so Bridgestone clearly has been doing something right at Motegi.

I would like to see more lollipops during post race celebrations so I opt for a Por Fuera win with Rossi, Stoner and Pedrosa in hot persuit. :yeah

By the way, Lorenzo will run a special 'Lupin III' livery, which is a long running Japanese manga cartoon based on the exploits of the original 'gentleman thief' Arsene Lupin, created at the beginning of the 20th century by French novelist Maurice Leblanc.

Now you're trying to throw an orange in the comparison, perhaps it's just the moon isn't aligned at the right position for NH?
