take an old pallet from walmart or something and drive a bunch of screws or nails into the bottom and weigh it down and tow it around the area where you want your track to get rid of all the grass. lanes should probably be 8-10 feet or wider. for a 1/8 buggy/truggy you'll want a pretty big area to build your track on probably at least 150x75 ft.

for the pipes, just use 4" corrugated drainage pipe
