Kirkham edges Seeley to win 2012 opener

Having made gains early on to 17th, Hill barely advanced beyond that position before eventually crashing out into retirement with three laps remaining, the Swan Yamaha rider beginning his 2012 BSB defence with zero points on the board.

Looking ahead to race two, Seeley's fastest lap hands him pole position, ahead of Kirkham, Brookes and Mason, while Lowry, Rutter, Westmoreland and Bridewell assume the row two spots. Hill, meanwhile, starts 19th, just behind Haga in 17th.
