This is such a huge event in Japan, and the hardware they bring out is awesome. Honda generally owns this event, but every now and then one of the others will sneak in a win, and the bragging rights that go Lang with such a win are enormous.

And this year, Schwantz is making a come back!

Haga, Kagayama, and Schwantz on the podium.

Incredible!

Old age and treachery!

Nori and Kagayama each did two stints and Schwantz did one.

I remember now why I never liked that guy.

Schwantz is without a doubt a GP legend, but his mouth isn´t serving him very well these days (his stupid comments on Pedrosa, etc.)

Still great to see their team do so well at Suzuka.

Well done. Jap bloke rode a stint in dark conditions, while raining a bit, on slicks.
