well if its just for you guys...... I use garden hoses strung out in the right shape. They are dirt cheap, easy to change and pack up, don't move easily. I guess you could use rope too if its too cold for plastic hoses. timing is tricky for a two guy track, stopwatches?

www.roaddome.com. Not that expensive and completely portable, easy to use and you can increase size of track as you go. I've had mine for 5+ years.

Pipe would probably work best. Cheap, portable, and it doesn't turn your car into a 60KPH missile.

But that's my favorite part of parking lot racing! I will be using pipe for mine soon, but for now... el cheapo cones from wal-mart.

Don't you mean a 60 KPH wall splatter?
