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.

One month on from announcing its investment initiative with crowdfunding platform Crowdcube, Arc, manufacturer of the world’s most advanced electric motorcycle has now opened for public investment.

Following a very strong pre-registration phase that has generated over 2,000 expressions of interest, Arc will offer members of the public an opportunity to invest in the game-changing Vector motorcycle. The investment will also help drive business scale through a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in St Athan, South Wales.

This partnership with Crowdcube marks the second phase of a much larger raise which includes the multi-year backing of a number of blue-chip investors, including Jaguar Land Rover’s Venture Capital fund InMotion Ventures.

Mark Truman, CEO of Arc says: “What an incredible few weeks it’s been. We had intended for Crowdcube to go live earlier in the month, but we were delayed due to the finalisation of terms with new cornerstone investors. Since we first announced the Crowdcube initiative, we have been overwhelmed with positive interest and pre-registration expressions exceeding 2,000. This is all about joining the Arc family, so whether you’re a motorbike aficionado, seasoned investor, technology or environment enthusiast, we’re inviting people to join our mission to become an established global leader in electric, recreational and luxury mobility. This unique investment opportunity is now open to the British public.”

The investment will be concentrated towards the opening of Arc St Athan in 2020 which will become the centre of excellence for the company’s manufacturing. The 65,000 square feet HQ will be reflective of the brand’s proposition; best in class, innovative and thoroughly British at heart. Included in the stunning manufacturing facility will be a clubhouse, a test track and proving ground as well as a private facility for clientele arriving by helicopter.

The Arc Vector will also be receiving investment to scale as the most advanced electric motorcycle ever brought to market, with a lightweight carbon-composite structure and ingeniously elegant battery-module monocoque.

Arc goes beyond just the machine itself, it’s about the journey. To this end, the company has created a revolutionary rider information syst
