A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
verb tr.: To approve officially, especially a car, engine, etc., for sale in a particular market or for its use in racing.
From Latin homologare (to agree), from Greek homologein (to agree or allow). Earliest documented use: 1644.
Some auto racing competitions require participating vehicles to be available for sale to the general public, and not be custom made for racing. In other words, the vehicle must be a production model, not a prototype. The process of homologation verifies this. The initials GTO listed after some auto names (Ferrari, Pontiac, etc.) stand for “Gran Turismo Omologato”, Italian for “Grand Touring, Homologated”.
“In fact we had earlier this year set a date for the UCI (officials) to come here and homologate the track.”
