Who invented the chariot?

The chariot was a light vehicle that moved on two wheels and was drawn by one or more horses. It could sometimes accommodate two people - often a driver and fighter. Its initial use as a vehicle of transportation quickly became a military asset in Eurasia between 1700 BCE to 500 BCE. It was used for hunting purposes or, in the case of sporting contents by the Romans. Chariot racing was a seasoned game in Homer and their ancient Olympics.
