IRC Series is most known for its flowing tarmac rallies & has lesser gravel rounds and it is this factor which makes the gravel rounds more interesting, since the drivers & teams are used to tarmac setups!

San Marino Rally is very special round in the IRC season 2012, as its known for its slippery surfaced gravel roads, heat at approx 40°C, and twisty mountain roads crossing the villages through.
