WA Police have released video footage taken by a man seriously injured filming burnouts on gravel.

Video footage of the exact moment a Western Australian man was seriously injured while filming a ute doing burnouts could be the key to finding the driver.

The footage, released by WA Police on Monday, shows the ute doing burnouts on a gravel area on a rural property in Caraban, north of Perth, on Sunday night.

A man in his 60s was recording a video of the manoeuvre when he was hit and seriously injured.

Police say the driver of the vehicle checked on the man, who was later airlifted to hospital, but left the scene soon after.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or knows about the driver or ute is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
