Chariot Racing is an old ancient Greek and Roman sport that was created for entertainment. Chariot race is one driver pulled by a horse in a chariot. The racers race in circles in the Circus maximus (building they were normally held in)These races are dangerous for both the horse and driver. Ancient Romans and Greeks hold races everyday for the entertainment of the people. If one won, or even just survived, they would become famous because the life expectancy of a charioteer was not very long. They could win money and if one was a slave could buy their own freedom.
