Sounds like a great introduction! Be forewarned, it's addicting!

You might try to dial back the power setting to Sport or even Normal on the track. This will make the brake/throttle transitions a little less twitchy, especially for the novice.

...and got lucky! It happened so fast lol
You might also consider running in MDM mode for awhile, seeing as you are just starting out. I run with DSC off and can honestly say that I am WAY faster with it off, however, that is after getting many track days under my belt and feeling comfortable at the edge. Having said that I will be driving a new track this weekend for the first time (Barber) and will start off with MDM for the first session.

You said it yourself, you got lucky! Sounds like you have good instincts, but hey its an expensive car, work up to it gradually.

Good luck, keep having fun!
