Starting with one of the first civilizations, the technology in Mesopotamia was not as advanced as today, maybe even in the future, the technology will get better. Cars wouldn't have been invented thanks to the wheel, technically, people still have the wheel, just a more advanced version, like wheels on cars.
Now to another ancient civilization, Rome was more, technologically advanced than Mesopotamia was, seeing as how that Mesopotamia was one of the first civilizations, but Rome was known for a lot of pretty inventions/entertainment. Everybody would be bored out of there minds without one of the first forms of entertainment, the chariot track. People would hold horse races in these tracks as forms of entertainment.
