Another Honda. Gone, but so fondly remembered... (Simoncelli went on to get 4th at Motegi 2011, after having got a ride-through penalty for jumping the start).
Here he leads Andrea Dovizioso.

Don't really have many good pics of the actual race, as we were only on a grandstand.
Besides, Moto GP has much better images, etc on their site for members

Those Brembo calipers are made of forged lithium-aluminum alloy with titanium pistons.
Not only are they 60% lighter than aluminum monoblocks, they are also 60% stiffer.
They cost around $7000 per caliper. They are wider the a usual caliper due to the reinforced-carbon-carbon (RCC) pads that go with the RCC rotors.
