MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Jeffrey Carver scoops AFT Twins by Vance Hines Round 17 in Texas on a Harley XR750

American Flat Track 
Privateer Jeffrey Carver scoops AFT Twins by Vance Hines Round 17 in Texas on a Harley XR750

The season-long dominance of the Indian ‘Wrecking Crew’ was brought to an abrupt end at the season’s penultimate race, the Lone Star Half Mile presented by Indian Motorcycle at Fort Worth, Texas, on September 23rd (Round 17) when privateer Jeffrey Carver Jr took a dominant win, showing that there is life left in Harley’s venerable and still popular XR750.


It was the first win of the season for any rider on any Harley platform and only the third AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines race out of 17 rounds so far this year not to be taken by the Indian Scout FTR750 – the other two being when Briar Bauman and Henry Wiles took the Buffalo Chip and Peoria, Illinois, TTs respectively on their Kawasaki 650 Ninjas.
On the clay Half Mile track at the Texas Motor Speedway, newly crowned series Champion Jared Mees was second on the #9 Indian Motorcycles/Roger Racing Indian FTR750, with privateer FTR750 rider Johnny Lewis third, the Wrecking Crew’s Bryan Smith 4th on his #4 Indian Motorcycle/Allstate Insurance FTR750; Briar Bauman brought his #5 Zanotti Racing Ninja 650 home in 5th.

Two other XR750s scored top ten finishes (Robert Pearson 6th, Cory Texter 9th), with the top placed factory Harley XG750R coming home 11th (Brandon Robinson), followed by Jake Johnson 12th and Kenny Coolbeth Jr placed 14th.
Indian Wrecking Crew rider Brad Baker was side-lined for the Texas race with a training injury, which gave Larry Pegram the chance to deputize, bringing the Indian Scout FTR750 home in 10th.

With Indian having already sewn up the manufacturer and rider championship wins, the series now moves on to an 18th and final round at the Cycle Gear American Flat Track Finals presented by Indian Motorcycle, Perris, California, on October 7th.
Meanwhile the details of the 2018 season schedule are already taking shape with the Daytona TT again to be the season opener on March 15 at the Daytona International Speedway, and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally again slated to see a double header with The Buffalo Chip TT slated for August 5, followed by the Black Hills Half Mile at Rapid City on August 7th.
