The Chariot Races

Ignatian Consuls continue to proclaim annually a feast day for the Chariot races. Races are held in the mall. The races are seen in the Circus Maximus (mall) where nearly 1,400 spectators are often present to see the dare-devil charioteers race around the perilously tight track.
 
The competition is fierce as the charioteers urge their teammates onward; as the drivers attempt by any ruse to throw a competitor into a spill; as the crowd at one of the turns throws water onto the smoking overheated wheels.
 
The pounding hoofbeats, the tumult from the mob, the ceremonial splendor of the setting, all contribute to the spectacle. The drivers are skillful and they risk their lives for high stakes - the palm and wreath of victory and great sums of money to the winner.
