Agreed, but for the start of the season. If there's 5 events you can't make L4 bump up in the middle of the season because they're competeing for the series title. In other words, your classification stays the same for the whole season.
As for L4:
I still believe there needs to be a true 3-man beginner class. Kids have to start somewhere, and running up against legit L3 teams is not gonna grow the sport.
Also... from another thread:

MPS needs to report the final 'Event Rank & Event Points' back to APPA for the system to work properly. I could still play L4 according to APPA because the 6 MPS events I've played don't report the results!
Not sure if this is a APPA or MPS issue, but George/Dan should do this before the '11 season. (This affects player rankings for other tourny series as well!)
