You can do this with a simple cron job. But it makes more sense to research 
why the Tor daemon aborts. You may have activated bandwidth accounting. Or 
limit at the provider is used up if you don't have unlimited services.

By the way, You have an unsupported EOL Tor version:

And your torrc is misconfigured. Why did you set exit policies that are also 
wrong? You must at least accept ports 80, 443 and 53 to be an exit. And 
generally first enter an exit address. Preferably IP and IPv6. ;-)

The ports TCP 6660-6667 (IRC) may allow DDOS attacks against you.
I'm not sure if that could be exploited in your constellation.
