Scott Jones Shoots Motegi - Part 1

Motegi is all about braking. Valentino Rossi has been taking tips from Leon Haslam

Akropovic titanium beauty

Motegi has been cruel to Dani Pedrosa. Another year, another snapped collarbone

Man on a mission, with four races to go

Winglets may be banned from next year, but Ducati's winglet designs grow ever more sophisticated each race

The tunnel is one of Motegi's defining features, especially for photographers

It allows for a subtle interplay between light and dark

And creates stunning images such as this. Not so good for sponsors, though

A glimpse of the future

Freight train. Slipstreaming helps figure out fuel consumption

Kats Nakasuga, Yamaha's official test rider. One of the big reasons behind their success

Nakasuga puts in the hard miles to get the M1 ready, and is fast enough to find the limit

Hector Barbera gets to stand in for Andrea Iannone. So far, he's been impressive

Backing it in. One place Honda's improved mastery of the electronics have helped Marquez go faster

Big Japanese Sky

You could forget that this track is mostly inside an oval

Japanese fans are hardcore
