AutoWeek reports Bentley is slowly building a team for the brand's return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The automaker has hired Graham Humphrys as a consultant. Humphrys penned the BMW V12 LMR that took the win at the 1999 Le Mans, and he's now tasked with heading up a feasibility study for the British luxury manufacturer.
