Roman Chariot Racing, The Legend of Ben Hur

Horse Racing is interesting, but what could we add to make it a bit more interesting? That’s right, a chariot, welcome to Roman Horse Racing. Last Sunday, on a race track in Berlin’s Mariendorf district, 17 competitors showed us an exciting spectacle, fighting against each other to win the 10.000€ trophy.

Chariot racing was the most popular sport in Rome, appealing to all social classes from slaves to the emperor himself.
