I am 182cm (6'1") and have a 325mm steering wheel, all of which prompt
me to seat fairly far back. I had exactly the same problem, when I had to
reach out for the clutch pedal in order to fully disengage the clutch.
On my car I have a set of Al MOMO pedal covers installed. On the
clutch pedal I installed the pad on two spacers which I machined out of
a 0.5" O.D. Al round stock.  I made a 3mm hole in the centra in each of
them (for the ME pedal mounting bolts).

The length of the spacers had to be missed-no-matched empirically
Methinks it's around 20mm in my case.
Now the clutch feels very comfortable.
