Le Mans 2002Dome's sports car history goes back much further than most people realize.  At the 1978 Le Mans Dome fielded a racing version of the Dome Zero road car, the Zero RL.  Most recently Dome was involved in the major redesign of Team Goh's BMW V12 LM.  Having presumably wetted their whistle with the BMW V12 LM, Dome decided to get back to sports car racing full time with the introduction of the new, from the ground up, S101 LMP.  So far Dome's reintroduction to sports car racing has been relatively successful winning in the FIA SCC series and performing very well in qualifying two years running at Le Mans.
