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.

Piaggio Group en Castrol sluiten mondiale overeenkomst voor de levering van smeermiddelen

Piaggio Group en Castrol sluiten mondiale overeenkomst voor de levering van smeermiddelen 

Breda, 24 april 2017 – Castrol en de Piaggio Group hebben een meerjarige mondiale overeenkomst getekend voor de levering van smeermiddelen voor de gemotoriseerde tweewielers van de merken Piaggio, Vespa, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Derbi en Gilera van de Italiaanse groep.

De overeenkomst betreft de exclusieve levering van de eerste motorolie voor de tweewielers van Piaggio Group die over de hele wereld worden vervaardigd en voor de commerciële voertuigen die in Italië worden geproduceerd. Ook gaat Castrol industriële en aandrijvingsproducten leveren.

De door Piaggio Group aanbevolen producten, Castrol POWER1 5W-40 en Castrol POWER1 10W-40, zijn daarna op de belangrijkste wereldmarkten ook voor service en onderhoud verkrijgbaar, en worden bovendien gedistribueerd via Piaggio's multibrandshop Motoplex in Europa en in de regio Azië/Stille Oceaan.

Het besluit om Castrol te kiezen als leverancier van Piaggio Group volgde op een streng testproces met onder meer uitgebreide praktijkproeven, dat de prestaties van Castrol POWER1-olie in termen van motorefficiëntie en duurzaamheid aantoonde.

De merken Piaggio en Castrol hebben een aantal punten gemeen: beide merken bestaan al meer dan 100 jaar en beide worden erkend als pionier op hun respectievelijke terreinen. Bovendien hebben beide een geweldige staat van dienst als het om overwinningen in de racewereld gaat: de merken van Piaggio Group wonnen gezamenlijk 104 wereldtitels en Castrol was leverancier en partner bij 21 wereldsnelheidsrecords op het land.
