Post directions of slots on rotors?

OK...this is just something I am almost possitive I know, but never REALLY thought about, and want to verify with you guys. When you have slotted rotors, what direction should the angled slots face. I believe that, for example, if you're looking at the top of the left front rotor the slots should slant back. Like /

Correct? I know I saw a pic of Prodrive/Alcon brakes recently, with the slotted rotors, but I can't find it.

slots should slant away from the direction of travel. i.e. driver's side front rotates counter clockwise, slots face toward rear of car.

Thats the best way to say it. Slots point back.

Yup. That's exactly what I thought.

For dummies like me, Brembo thoughtfully put L on one and R on the other. Now, is that driver's right or mechanic's right...
