I don't think you do.Oh I'm very aware of all the costs
Just in tires and fees for events for light use you are looking at a maintenance package 3500 a year. Then you have custom insurance to cover the cost you just made and 90% of the time to get that coverage for 3x the cars value in parts alone you usually get track insurance and that's about 2 grand maybe 3 grand a year.
My 718 with a trans tune and re71s and autocross fees and some other track cross and what not all kn is about 6 grand a year with insurance but that's on a 135k car. And I'm not willing to push her into a wall like you might.
Yiu will always be finding a weak link. Some part that never works right. Your time working on all this adds up.
In the end. Buy a race car meant to do things.
It's a hobby.
Oh and if your just street racing or just not doing jack tiddly squat with all that power then why bother?
