Sorry about your crash!
The silver lining is indeed that the tires and bumper did their job and damage is largely "cosmetic". Sounds like you'll be back in no time at all!

Constructively, you already got the best advice:
- Look where you want to go
- Correct, pause, recover...

Somebody here also mentioned autocross - I absolutely agree with this! To save this one, you needed much quicker hands and that's what you gain at an autocross event. After a few autocross events, making fast, decisive corrections will be nearly automatic. I really think you should give it a shot!

Good luck on your rebuild! Hope you'll be back out there soon.
