Other user descriptions
The Circus Maximus (Latin Circus Maximus, the largest racetrack) was an ancient race track, venue for popular entertainment located in Rome. the track could hold up to 12 cars and the two sides of it are separated by a raised median called the spina. Statues of various gods were placed on the spina, and Augustus also erected an Egyptian obelisk on it. At each end of the spina was placed a pole of rotation, the goal around which the chariots made dangerous turns at speed. One end of the runway was lengthened more than the other, to allow the cars lined up at the start of the race. There were gates carceres output, which staggered the chariots so that all tour the same distance in the first round. It remains very little of the Circus, with the exception of the race track, now covered with grass, and the spina. Some of the exit gates remain, but most of the seats are gone, no doubt because it was the stone used to build other buildings in medieval Rome.
