You'll need bar ends and tape on them bars anyway.
It's been suggested before and while I've never done it, it seems like a sensible way to go. Simply set up one set of bars with tape and brakes and another set of bars for the track, then swap them over as needed. This also allows you to use track bars on the track (which aren't good on the road) and a good road set up on the road, all for a fifteen minute swap over. Similarly, you can set up some road pedals and simply spin on a set of racing pedals for track night. By they time this becomes a pain in the neck, you'll know whether you're ready for a dedicated track bike or not.
