Cat 4 v Cat 3/4

Are there any advantages/disadvantages to riding in a cat 3/4 race versus a cat 4? I'd like to give it a go, but my nearest circuit is Darley Moor, which seem to only run 3/4 events.

I've got no illusions about winning, i'd just rather not get spat out the back on the first lap, and I've sort of convinced myself that a 3/4 race will be faster than a 4.

I imagine there are plenty who race in cat 4 who are faster/stronger than some cat 3 riders, so does it really matter?
