I don't know, I feel bedding is just a myth. When I was stock at the Nurburgring, I would bed the brakes (stock pads) on the Autobahn before going onto the Ring but the brakes warped up just the same (or uneven brake pad transfer if you don't believe the rotor can warp).

Since getting the PFC BBK, I have not done any sort of bedding. Basically, I switch out from my street pads to the PF01s before going to the track, drive to the track, and go crazy on the track. Drive home after the weekend is over, take the PF01s off and put the street pads back on. Done. The rotors look fine and there's hardly any wear, the pads are done after 3x HPDEs though. Maybe I'm missing something here but what I've been doing seem to work pretty good. VIR is not heavy on the brakes other than turn 1 and 14/14a. So maybe that is kind of the bedding in process because you brake hard at 1, it cools off and you brake at Oak Tree, it cools off and you brake at 14/14a, bedding process complete..... :P
