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.

Campsite doors open on Friday and there will be showers available, there is a canteen with food, drinks and toilets, which makes it easy and affordable to come over AND RACE!


Entrance tickets are 10 euro at the gate.

Spectators have great overview of the oval, as it is situated in a pit with a complete stand around the whole track, so there is no excuse to stay home!

We have a Newbie Class
where you can try the flat track fun on your old MX, Triumph, Scrambler, street tracker.. if we like your bike.. you’re in! No specs needed, just unplug your front brake and install a cut off switch (which stalls the bike if you fall) most important is that your bike is in full technical order!

What is Flat Track?
One of the oldest and most traditional discipline of motorcycle racing is flat track - sometimes referred to as “dirt track” racing. While the roots of flat track racing date back to the early 1900’s, it wasn’t until post-World War II that the sport evolved into its current modern structure, a uniquely American type of motorcycle racing. Riders finesse their machines
sideways through the turns, just inches apart from each other, at speeds over 130 mph. In short, Flat Track provides one of the most thrilling spectacles in motorsports. 

Flat Track is raced on oval tracks:
On Mile and Half Mile tracks, the big twin framers, putting out 90+ horsepower, race bar-to-bar at speeds in excess of 130 mph. 
On Short Tracks and TT’s, the spirited nature of the single-cylinder production-based 450cc bike
