Default Weight classes?

Hey guys. I just signed up and have been searching through the forums here for a little. I have been dedicated to a class 2 weightlifting program for about 3 months or so now and have done one competition. I am normally about 69kg, but am wondering if it would benefit me to drop to the 62kg weight class. Are there any benefits besides the fact I would be a few kilos away from being a class 1 lifter if I dropped weight... I haven't found much about weight classes besides what totals you should have in each and how to program for each (from bob takanos book. Just ordered Greg Everett's book). I really want to start competing more often. Thanks guys.
