* The race in ''Literature/BenHur'', as noted, is the TropeCodifier, featuring SpikedWheels (Messala's "Greek chariot"), Messala whipping his horses and any driver within range, if you're tossed from the chariot, there's a token attempt at retrieval.
** Don't forget to check out the ''silent'' version of ''Literature/BenHur'', preferably a decent print at the right speed. Apparently one of the more spectacular accidents in the original chariot race [[EnforcedMethodActing wasn't staged]], and the stunt driver only barely escaped with his life.

to:

* One happens in the climax of ''Film/{{Pompeii}}'' and in the streets of the titular city as the infamous eruption of Vesuvius happens: [[spoiler:[[BigBad Senator Corvus]] rides a chariot in an attempt to escape the doomed city with [[DamselInDistress Lady Cassia]] and [[TheHero Milo]] chases them on horseback. The chase ends as the chariot crashes into a temple, culminating in the last fight]].




to:

* Twice in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones'', the titular hero does this to advance the plot -- first by reaching Babylon and then chasing down one of the antagonists. The player has to not only pick the proper way to turn (which may not always be obvious) but also ram into enemies and strike them out of the chariot before they can kill you.
