Corner speed feels more stable and easier to throw it into a corner since you don't have to worry about excessive entry speed.

I was pretty intimidated going into the races since I didn't know anything either. Not 100% sure if your club runs the same as us but if so, you have a team of 2-5 people. Basically run like a normal race -- first rider grids up and takes off with everyone else and whenever he feels like it, pit in and switch riders. There's other minor details like when you're filling up gas, only two riders on the pit lane, rider has to be off the bike, bike on stand, one other guy with a fire extinguisher ready. Mini endurance is 2 hours so whoever puts out the most laps is ahead. Bike big endurance is similar but 4 hours.
