I feel confident you are already working on this; however:
Will rules be implemented on what to do in case of catastrophic server failure in the future?
At one point, an admin had stated that if a crash occurred mid-race, the race would be moved to the next weekend. We almost ran into issues after the crash, keeping our teamates informed.
Also, apologies from LOTF to the SR team, who appeared to loose 2 spots before the start of the 3 hour race. We have never had server failures like that before, and we are working with our Server host provider to try and identify what went wrong.
