100k isn't close to doing it right in Clios.

100k would cover car hire, 4 slicks (per round), insurance and team support for the 9 rounds (assuming block discount, round by round it's still short).

Then you need to add; travel and accommodation, race fuel, test days (test fee + car/team + consumables + tyres + fuel), insurance excess (5000 per claim), wet tyres (2 laps on a drying track and they're fucked)

Good year with no major accidents, you could probably manage a competitive season for 150k. Speaking to guys that have done it, if you want to be at the sharp end, it's about testing testing testing.

Granted, that's for hire drive, do it with a homemade team, it'll be cheaper but when the team fee adds in things like a data analyst and other drivers to compare yourself against, it would be even tougher to get to the sharp end that way.
