Maybe it is because Laguna Seca is our home round, but we were really digging the Red Bull US GP posters that the track had up in various moto haunts in San Francisco. Minimalist, with just enough color to pop on the white backgrounds, the promo posters were obviously something right up our own taste for aesthetics.

That being said, the 2012 AirAsia Japanese Grand Prix posters might be the best we have ever seen. Let us know who your favorite anime MotoGP character is in the comments. Our notes after the jump.

Casey Stoner: We can honestly say we never thought of Casey as a Ken from Streetfighter type of guy.

Jorge Lorenzo: KANEDA!!!!

Nicky Hayden: Don’t worry, this guy is legit.

Dani Pedrosa: Too much, or not enough, teenager angst. We can’t decide.

Andrea Dovizioso: We are seriously concerned that he is about to kidnap Casey.

Cal Crutchlow: Spot on.

Valentino Rossi: We are just glad he made it onto the poster. *Cough* Ben Spies *Cough*
