I think 4 may not be enough... especially for a race compound. And don't stick to a hard number because there are many variables involved (ambient temp, how hard you brake, prior layers, etc.) I've typically bedded my brakes until I can either A) see/smell smoke from the brakes or B) see a layer of transferred pad material on the rotors.
