The RfH Dome was always one of the best privateer cars (speed & reliability) at Le Mans. Since 2000 from all regular private LM teams it's in my opinion 2nd best behind Pescarolo. In this time period only two times a Lola finished in top 10.
RfH Dome results:
2001 DNF (engine)
2002 8th (best privateer)
2003 6th (2nd best privateer)
2004 7th (2nd best privateer)
2005 7th (2nd best privateer)
2007 DNF (crash)
Not bad for an underfunded team.
So at Le Mans I would prefer a Dome over a Lola. LM(E)S is another story....
I am convinced Dome is able to design and build a quick an reliable car. They only need one or more well funded teams to run the car.
