Widely reported rumour late last year - need to remember that Scnitzer & Carly are direct competitors.
I think there's some major confusion stepped in here.

Carly Motors (who ran the BMW GB/Priaulx entry in ETCC this year) were all set to run the cars.

Ferrier and Hanson launched the team at Brands Hatch last year under the Schnitzer Sportscars banner. They work as UK importers of road-tuned cars/parts from Schnitzer in Germany. This division is called Schnitzer Sportscars.

I think Schnitzer stepped in and said 'no' to them using the Schnitzer name in their team title.

Where they've gone since appears to be a bit of a mystery.
