Construction is racing into the homestretch 35 kilometers outside of Delhi in preparation for India’s first Formula One grand prix, on Oct. 30. India’s first Formula One race track, known as the Buddh International Circuit, is expected to be homologated by August.
Homologation is the approval process a race track must go through to be part of a league or series. The regulations and rules that must be met are set by the sanctioning body—the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The builder needs to follow guidelines for design, track tolerance, corners and run-offs.
