Carlos Frau Cañellas (born 12 February 1995) is a Spanish simracer, currently competing for MPG Competition in the IVRC Touring Car Championship and World Endurance Championship.

Touring Car Championship

With the beginning of IVRC, Frau joined the Touring Car Championship for it's debut season in 2018.

Nürburgring Endurance

For the first edition of the IVRC Nürburgring Endurance race Frau participated with MPG Competition. After initially going for a 24h race, the race directors shortened the race distance to 90 minutes and forbid shared entries. In the process, Frau started the race from Pole Position and took the win ahead of his team mates Grimminger and Volland.

Bathurst 200

For the first edition of the IVRC Bathurst 200 race Frau participated with MPG Competition.

GT3 World Cup

For the first edition of the IVRC GT3 World Cup, Frau will participate with MPG Competition Europe in a Mercedes-AMG GT3.

F3 World Cup

For the first edition of the IVRC F3 World Cup, Frau will participate with MPG Competition in a Volkswagen-powered Dallara F312. He finished on the podium after a consistent drive in the Main Race.

In 2020 he competed for MPG Competition again, this time however he was able to win the race by profiting from other's mistakes and issues, proving once again that he's not only one of the fastest but also most consistent drivers.
